we were on our way to the PNE yesterday afternoon and I ended up taking more pictures of the front yard gardens that we passed than i did of the kids on rides. Some gorgeous, mouth-watering displays of gardening ingenuity, in all its forms. First up, a lovely Craftsman with a picket fence. From the street, it looks pretty.
When you peer over the fence (as i am wont to do), you spy a functional and attractive garden.
so pretty. in the same neighbourhood, squash and melon vines sprawl vigorously.
some are combined with raised beds holding other veggies.
the scariest version was an entirely enclosed chain link cage.
ugly as heck, but effective – check out the crop (i’m guessing bitter melon, but i don’t really know)
when we finally made it to the fair, i did manage to get a shot of the smallest kid on a ride.
the rest was just a blur of lines and rides and animals and junk food galore. i really wanted to eat a deep-fried mars bar (just to say that i had) but we didn’t get to it this time around. maybe next year…
