Subversive Blossoms

Sometimes a solution cleverly disguises itself
as a problem or adversity.

Some may view these plants tucked away behind bars with dismay, but I choose to look at it another way . . .

. . .as an unequivocal statement on the part of the residents
 on this block to include beauty and nature on their street. . .

One. Way. Or. The. Other.

Here Comes the Sun!

Earlier this year I was pleasantly surprised to spot this installation of solar panels on the roof of a home in my neighborhood. Although I am aware of a solar panel installation in a nearby commercial district (about a mile away) I think this may be the first  (only...?) residential installation.

I hope the first of many!
