The Flying Saucer

Something odd appeared in a field across the road and to the north of us…

…a flying saucer that raised lots of questions in our heads.

The saucer is between the two middle trees far off in the distance.

One day after Dear crossed the road to get the mail he walked further north to inspect it. He met a new neighbor who filled him in on the story behind this bit of yard art.  This new neighbor commissioned someone to build this Flying Saucer for him. Before the Flying Saucer arrived we watched a shop/barndominium go up and lots of vehicles arrive. Don’t know if a house will be built on this piece of land or if the neighbor has made a place to live inside the shop.

Country/rural properties lend themselves to odd yard art and just plain junk yards. I’d rather see a flying saucer instead of some of the junk piled up on properties around here. You can see pristine properties to junkpile properties along our roads. I keep threatening to find an unusual piece of yard art to stick in our front acreage. I’m not really sure I want to draw unwanted attention to our property, though.

Have a good new week y’all.

Look Closely…

The sign on the gate caught our eye but the surrounding fence really had us investigating. Check out the stone fence surrounding this gate. The fence around this beach home near Oxnard in Southern California holds lots of surprise elements.

When my husband was working in Southern California from 2006-2010 we had a condo so on the weekends we were”foot loose and fancy free” to do whatever we wanted. We really enjoyed early morning walks at the beach and one Saturday we ventured out to the Oxnard area and spotted this house.

Here are some closeups of the wall/fence.

I’m linking up to signs, signs with Lesley and to Good Fences #75 with TexWisGirl at Run*A*Round Ranch Report.

I’m looking forward to some time in the future when Dear and I might be footloose and fancy free. Time will tell. In the meantime I’ll be content with our busy schedules and long prayer lists!

Different Fences…

Driving to the famous Farmer’s Market area of Los Angeles a few years ago we came across this house with an over the top application of Michelangelo’s David statues. Yes, plural, statues! This is in a million dollar plus neighborhood.

Over 14 David reproduction statues. I wonder what the story behind this landscaping is? Yard art gone crazy! What do you think the neighbors say? “Oh you won’t have a problem finding our street, turn at the David’s x 14+!”

So many sad and serious things happening in the Pacific Northwest right now I had to post something to distract myself in between praying earnestly!

Port Townsend Yard Art!

It’s been a long time since I’ve been out and about with the opportunity to see some good yard art. This last Saturday while Dear and I were driving up and down the streets of Port Townsend, Washington, we spotted a few gems…

This house was serious with two of everything plus a surveillance camera to make sure no one took off with them.

These last two photos are of different views of the same house with bird houses stuck on the fence posts and other art in their front yard.

 

Yard Art ~ Dallas

My little niece arranged some pumpkins in her front porch area. If you look closely between the corn you’ll see an H and an O and a P and part of an E. :0) Then while my SIL and I went on a 6 mile walk early in the morning we spotted this..

It was still on the dark side so a little blurry. Please visit Mary at Work of the Poet to see more yard art or to join in…

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

When Pigs Fly!

 

This is my contribution for Yard Art on Thursdays hosted by Mary at Work of the Poet. This is from my archives and was taken in California on Topanga Canyon Road.

I’ll probably be missing from action till Monday! Have a great rest of the week and weekend!

Yard Art Spooks!

 

It’s that time of year when Yard Art becomes Ghoulish. We’ve been blessed with some beautiful weather this week in the Northwest so I finally took a long overdue walk and came across some Halloween yard art.

Click over to Work of the Poet to join in the fun. I decided to have my own fun with this collage, too…

Beaufort Yard Art!

 

While driving down Bay St. in Beaufort, South Carolina we spotted this beauty so I pulled over to take a photo.

I’m linking to Yard Art on Thursdays with Mary at the Work of the Poet. I’m not sure this meme will last but I’ll still always enjoy finding the fun/strange/wild/and whimsical yard art out there in the neighborhoods of the world!

Yard Art ~

 

I wanted to post the rest of my yard art from our trip to Eastern Washington before they got buried. This first one was along Highway 2 on the west side of the Cascades.

 

These last two shots are from Tonasket, Washington on the East side of the Cascades.

Yard Art on Thursday ~

When I was in Canada a few weeks ago I spotted these on a farm next to the one I was staying at.

 

This is as close as I could get with my lens. They really caught my attention and made me smile. A new kind of scarecrow?
