The sky here is just ridiculous. Seriously, that’s a lot of fabulous to spend on an average weekday afternoon. Related Links: More Wordless Wednesdays on Caterpickles
Amazingly, this is just someone’s front yard. Every time I look at this photo, my brain tries to tell me that there’s a river swooping along the bottom of that tree with the orange leaves. But really it’s just dirt.
One of the things I love about the public schools here in California is that the buildings are often covered with murals painted by the students. This week for Wordless Wednesday, I’m highlighting portions of the Endangered Species Mural at Juana Briones Elementary School. The mural was painted by the school’s fifth grade class of 1994. (Check the last picture for the list of artists.)
It’s Girl Scout cookie season, and that means we get to talk to all sorts of Girl Scout alums about their experience selling cookies back in the day. This week, we met someone who claimed that Thin Mints are not only one of the most popular types of Girl Scout cookies, they’re also one of the oldest. So of course, we had to know: Were Thin Mints really only the third Girl Scout cookie to be introduced?
Portion of the mural painted on the Printers Inc building on Birch Street in downtown Palo Alto, CA. The mural dates from the 1980s.
While traveling through San Francisco International Airport last December, The Ten-Year-Old and I stumbled across a giant shoe sculpture by Yayoi Kusama called High Heels for Going to Heaven.
We came across this wonderful bit of public art somewhere in Panama City Beach, Florida over winter break. The words above the wings say “F.L.Y. First Love Yourself – others will come next…”
Every time we go to the farmer’s market I try to find at least one fruit or vegetable we’ve never had before. This week, we stumbled across a pale green cauliflower-shaped vegetable made of fractals. So of course, we took it home and roasted it.
This week we stumbled across an amazing outdoor display of glass pumpkins at the Stanford Shopping Mall in Palo Alto, California.
