Yesterday the weather turned glorious after lunch. Back to summer conditions once again, and suppose to be beautiful all weekend...whoo hooo! I heard on the radio that there were a lot more black bears on the go this year than last. Fortunately we haven't had any around this house so far this season. Apparently, in a community very near here, one killed a dog and another got into someones house. This is always a worry at certain times of the year. Although, I must admit, it's a lovely sight to see one of these beautiful creatures sitting in the herb garden munching away, but not something you want to fool with.
While in the city last weekend I took some pictures of the colourful houses in the old part of town. They are often referred to as "Jelly Bean" houses because of the bright colours. These are just a few of the many.
This is my daughters house. It's over a hundred years old and one of the first ones built in the area.
