Exploding fireworks of clump of delightful goldenrod in a private lot.
It's hard to see it from all the way over here, but it's the "private lot" for Mr. James Hairstylist, which closed in 2013. "But don't paint over the sign and don't let people park here for free, I guess," I said disapprovingly.

1913 good-'n'-viny former Orange Order lodge in downtown Sault Ste. Marie.
The memories of the fraternal protestantism and weird activities of the Orangemen is honoured by the weedy abundance of daylilies near the building.

From the 1970s onward the building operated as a thrift store named "The Flea Market." Less than three mo…

The tansy beds are a mess, and my gosh what a place for an armoire.

Tan-painted OSB for a golden-painted building with a red door.
