Out of the Jurisdiction: Columbus

Two weeks ago I was in Columbus, Ohio, for two days.  German Village is a wonderful historic district immediately to the south of the downtown.  The residents have a real sense of community and take holiday decorations seriously!  When I worked in Columbus, my house was around the corner from the house with the green awning in the top photo.

The bright bows are pretty, but the houses are absolutely perfect. What a nice looking street!

Bricks certainly seem abundant in that lovely neighborhood! The bows are bright and large, and the garlands are festive. Wonderful community spirit and great photo.

Love all that brick. Just need a dusting of snow to make it really festive!

Just visiting old friends or trying to get some ideas for Christmas decorations?

Lots of brick! Houses, sidewalks, streets!

Such a nice ways to brighten up the autumn/winter landscape. . .and even the sidewalks are brick! Is this much brick common in Columbus, or is it confined more to some neighborhoods?

Terrific decorations, Jack! I love the fence with the red ribbons - such a clever idea:)

I like these old-timey decorations. They seem appropriate in this neighbourhood.

Hi Jack, I've just seen your comment on the Kangaroo post, must say I'm pretty chuffed that you took the time to look it up and you're right Google Earth and GM really do bring us all closer together, I love that site!!

Red brick house and red bows. A very cheap and effective way of decorating.
