Monday Murals – Art Commissioned for Our Enjoyment

thanks to Sami from Colourful World

https://sami-colourfulworld.blogspot.com/2021/02/monday-mural-pop-of-colour.html for hosting Monday Murals

I love murals and street art. Sometimes we see things so often, almost daily, and we take it for granted. In my neighbourhood there are lots of murals that have been commissioned over the years that I had completely forgotten about when thinking of this challenge. Here are just a few of the murals that are close together in my neck of the woods.

This last one is my favourite. It almost feels like there is an actual Mountie up on a ladder painting the last bit of red on the wall. Notice his horse waiting for him on the other side of the bus shelter.

New Flower (February 22, 2019) – White Poinsettia

….did you know that the poinsettia is actually a tree

I’m looking after my neighbour’s plants while she’s away. Two of them are white poinsettias and they don’t look very healthy. According to Becky B over at Life with B this is very normal in Feb/March when they normally lose all their leaves before summer. The individual flowers on one of the plants still look quite pretty.IMG-1321

Full Moon Over the City

….actually the moon was to the right of the city tonight

When I was out earlier this evening the moon was a beautiful golden ball sitting just above the horizon line with a wispy cloud crossing in front of it. I didn’t have my camera with me and when I returned home dinner was on the table. A half hour later the moon was much higher in the sky and the colour had changed from amber yellow to silver.
