[the rainbow house]*
i absolutely love my neighborhood. it's eclectic. it's fun and funky and is home to a great mix of people. there are many restaurants within walking distance--falafel, sushi, barbecue, tacos, indian, sandwiches, and pizza galore. we've got coffee shops, parks, bookstores, and a great library. it's a neighborhood where walking and biking are the best ways to get around and an afternoon's entertainment can be found sitting outside and people-watching.
it's the kind of neighborhood where you never know what you're going to find around the next corner.
like the rainbow house.
the wild mix of colors always makes me happy, but i think the crepe myrtle blooms really add to the revelry.
whenever i pass by the rainbow house, i can't help but try to imagine who lives here. i'd like to be friends with them.
i also love the wildness of the tall grasses in front and the way the rough wooden siding contrasts with the colorful facade.
nearby, i spotted this monkey hanging in a tree. he's even got all of his...um...monkey parts. it cracks me up.
