The street will be part of the ambiance for the bar as a beer garden, the landlord thinks all these trees are going to make shade in August. It will help but clearly not be the total cooling solution. The tree company's crew was quite busy all day planting 19 trees total for the streetscape part of the building's renovation. When renovating a building in town, you must include street lamps and trees around all the property. Nice in theory, but when overhead power lines and underground utilities exist, your project begins to look a little cobbled together. (Then when the trees grow and get into the overhead lines the power company will cut them down... city hall makes little sense sometimes.) So all planted in, tree trucks leave, the other trades quickly took to parking next to the trees. No after photo to be had.
Hey, it's still early, let's get to the Main Street Art Festival before the crowd!
We beat the crowd.
There is photography. Hey, wait...what? I had to stop to take a photo.
Being a part of an arts festival community, I frown on folks taking photos of one's art. Too many copy cat wannabe's out there.
Did I mention wimsy?
What, Sweetie? On the walk home my sweetie stops and looks up.
A sparrow all fluffed up for the chilly night ahead. Singing a tune.
Back home, trades are gone. Vanity shot.
Landlord say grand opening will be Memorial Day weekend. As I keep promising.... more photos to come.
