Let's Get Funky Today


They also sell flowers picked in their garden, using an unattended "honor box."  I bought a bunch.

HA! This is cute, I'd love to see it in the winter with a little snow on the ground. Great colors. I also like your shot, Friends, nice walk by.

What a difference! But I like it! Good for you getting some flowers!

(Blush: I drive to work. It's faster.)

What a novel way to advertise! Pretty funky, and I love the fact that you decided to branch out and give us a "slice of life" from your area.

Cindy said...

I love this, Jack. What a fun photo for Sunday. Enjoy your day, and your flowers!

Looks like a fun place and I adore those hearts on the shutters. Nice that they have an honor box.

Jacob said...

The fence is wonderful but I love that house, too. The people who live here must have good hearts and a great sense of humor. I hope you were generous! As usual!

Regina K said...

I loooove this fence and the color of the house. Are any of those pickets known Hartfordians.

So FUN! I can't imagine what my kids would say If I told them it was time to re-paint the fence on this one....
Love that you bought a bunch!

Birdman said...

Ah, the honor box. Then there is still a chance to survive as a society. Good!

I built a white picket fence across the back of our lot in Arlington, VA 35 years ago. I painted it white. Today you made me realize how boring and unimaginative I am.

Wow, that is funky! But fun too. I like the idea of the honor box for some flowers.

Yes, I'm back to school (teacher), my husband also started a new business, hence my absence from blogging lately :{

That took a lot of time and effort. Well done!

Bruce Clark said...

Love the colors throughout the shot...very nice

Halcyon said...

That is cute! I bet most people are honorable. :)

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

Quite a contrast to yesterday's shot! It takes all sorts. And these people look like my sort of folks.

Madge said...

Love the fence and I love people who still have faith in others to leave a 'cash box,' for the flowers or eggs or whatever they sell alongside the road... Nicely captured and shared.

Virginia said...

I love this and I love the honour system. I hope your bunch brightened your day and your home.

Shannon said...

what a cheerful and creative shot. I'd buy a bunch of flowers from them too!

Oakland Daily Photo said...

I think of it as kitschy; then again, what's the difference? Like the spirit of the place.

Lynette said...

Yea for funky! Super photo, Jack. So glad you shared it with us.

EG Wow said...

I love, LOVE the whimsy!

Lois said...

Now that is cute!

Gina said...

Nice find. Glad you bought some flowers.

SRQ said...

Love the honor system...especially with public parks. I've never heard of it for flowers in a private garden.

Karl said...

I love this fun place and colourful fence, Jack!
