Continuing on in the photo of the day for 365 day quest these are my photos of the day from June 10th -June 20th….. I wonder if I will ever catch up to a current month!
160 - oooh – pink shutters make me shudder! But, I love the front terrace:
161 – the manservant plants peppers out the front in the tiny little bit of dirt that runs between our front path and next door's front path: Given the hot afternoon sun; lack of water and bashing about by shopping bags, it's surprising they ever have a pepper but they do – first one of the season:
162 -Plaque on a building at Howard University
163 – a diner type place not far from where I live - the window decor is eclectic and has obviously been there for many, many years!
164 – corner of our back deck. I bought the "stepables" to plant in the front with the hope they would take over the grass and we wouldn't have to mow anymore….. so far this project has not worked well as the stepables are still on the deck table!
165 – herbs gone wild – now a month later they are even wilder!!
166 – My hydrangeas were at their best in June….. in July they were brown and sunburnt.
167 – love this mirrored building in Ballston, Virginia
168 – dinner in a bag
169 – old fire station –
170 – my parents-in-law came to visit and asked what I would like as a "thank you" for having them….. this is what I requested. The first one was delivered by UPS and stolen off the front steps… rather than upset his parents the manservant replaced it. It was a hot day on June 20th !!
