I'm tall enough that I'm able to graze the bottoms of these with my fingertips if I stand on my toes. The stripes in the sky are the result of a sunburst earlier in the day.

Ten dollar "Hero Bouquets" available.
Do not worry; the changeable-letters sign has got a locked screen over it, so smart aleck teens won't be able to rearrange the letters in the night.

It seems like that planter that the sign is parked on might be able to get some flowers put in it.

It might be interesting for somebody to observe the rock garden between the street and the sidewalk as it changes through the seasons, as the weeds green up and start to overtake the decorative rocks and the…

How wonderful!

If we're delightful, this will remind us how important it is for people of all ages to set time aside for play.

Looking at this you should be getting ideas for some things you could be doing at home with materials such as bedsheets, I hope!

I wish I knew how to figure out what the kind of plant is but I guess I'm just completely helpless. If anybody knows the name I'd love to hear it!, but still I'll feel really stupid for not knowing how to find out for myself.

It looks like it might be a nice area to live in if you're fond of particular colours. There are sidewalks on both sides of the streeeeet and that's rare in certain neighbourhoods of some cities.

I shall never try to forget my walks among the city of Albuquerque.
I like to see the things that the big bushes do when the chainlink gets near them. I wish that the buses ran more often. I can not think of anything else that could or should be where the spread of gravel is.

Can you think of ways that the area might h…

Here come the waters in the stream known as the "Alameda Drain."  It just got finished flowing underneath of I-40!
I said, "Welcome to Albuquerque, ditch!" The Alameda Drain is no Río Grändé but it definitely looks prettiest early in the morning. I predict it'll be the perfect ecosystem for 1000+ different kinds of things. The large Best Western hotel sign back the…
