Since I’ve put on a little weight lately, I’ve decided to give some mild exercise a try. I’ve taken 30-minute jaunts around the neighborhood every day this week. I go early so as to avoid the insufferable heat and humidity that descend upon Baton Rouge by late morning (followed by the seemingly daily afternoon shower). Here are some of the things I’ve come across:
I saved the best for first. Even the trees here are Tiger fans.
Purple Door, Purrrr-ple Door
This shade was inspired while the owner was brushing his teeth.
That sign reads “Yard of the Month.”
But I like this one better. And not just because one of those trees is a satsuma tree.
Flora abounds: lots of crepe myrtles like this one, plus magnolias, oaks, cypress…um…grass.
Lots of grass.
Mowing is for suckers.
Looks like somebody needs a V-8.
That’s our house. And that’s our monster Christmas tree.
“He is a loathsome, offensive brute. Yet I can’t look away.”
So there you have it. Thanks for joining me on this virtual tour of our neighborhood. I left out the somewhat dilapidated rent houses (occupied primarily by college students) for your viewing pleasure. Have a good day!
