Can you see the fence creature hanging between these posts? It’s an unexpected ornament next to a driveway. It reminds me of the sketches we used to do in school where eyes, a nose, and hands were shown poking over a fence. Perhaps that was the inspiration for this little work of art.
A fence near Old Olympic Highway has sprouted a new mural. It captures a classic summer garden moment and I know it will brighten my days as I pass it during winter.
DH found this Sequim Rock recently at the Sequim Library. Sequim Rocks is a thing here. People paint rocks and place them around the community. Finders are encouraged to take a picture of the painted rocks they’ve found, post it on Facebook, and then leave the rock somewhere else for another to find. It’s a day brightener and some of the rocks are beautiful little works of art.
This horse caught my eye at Over the Fence. They weren’t yet open, so it’s a photo through the fence.
I read recently that this business is for sale as the owners are ready to retire. This is a wonderful place to shop. I hope it stays as great in the future.
There’s an eye catching mural on the side of a building on the road into Port Townsend. It was a Honda motorcycle and engine dealership but the building’s empty now and a “For Sale” sign adorns the front.
This sculpture is in the front yard of a residence, partly hidden by large rhododendron bushes. We’d almost driven by before I saw it out of the corner of my eye.
The patina of aged wood lends it character.
The temporary former location of the Sequim Farmer’s Market has taken on a new life. “Whimsy Park” is something of a popup park that has transformed a previously bare lot on Washington Street. A mural that was incomplete several months ago is now enhancing a space with picnic tables, a small stage, and straw bale seating.
Landscaping has been installed and wood chips soften the look of formerly bare soil. The space is inviting, colorful, and far more welcoming than it previously was.
