This resident of the Brentwood neighborhood in our town has put flags in his yard to recognize the Texans who have died of the COVID epidemic. A tribute like this is an apt entry for today, since we have decided to stop trying to post on a daily basis, as we have since May 17, 2007. We may put something up from time to time, when we snag an especially good shot. The loss of the worldwide portal has just put the brakes on our enthusiasm. Cheers!

Hipponotic Yard Art


Someone used those colored glass pellets and some hippo statues to decorate their yard. Different!

Halloween Gone Wild

 Walking around the neighborhoods is interesting this time of year because...Halloween. But this is the first snake consumes snake I've seen. That's scary!

Skeletons Relaxing

Does it signify Halloween or have those people just sheltered on the porch too long during the pandemic?

Convenience Mural


This mural on the back of a convenience store includes some odd icons. I guess the yellow roses (of Texas?) and the Armadillo could denote local icons but the snake and tiger? No clue. Love walking along and discovering something like this. Near North Loop and 51st Street.

Mr. Smoke


I suppose that's a dragon on the side of the Mr. Smoke shop. Quite the elaborate mural.

Gate as Work of Art


Why have a plain gate when you can make it look like an abstract painting?

Ghost of ?


This ghost haunting a yard has, to me, a very calm almost religious face. Like Mary the Mother?

Spider Prey?

 Giant spiders are popular in the neighborhoods for Halloween, but those skeletons give me pause as to what they might be allegedly dining on!

Invasion of the Giant Spiders

Apparently, spiders are a popular decoration for Halloween this year, and the bigger the better. This one was in South Austin but they are all over even though Halloween is weeks away.

Landscaping Coup

This is in a private yard in Bryker Woods. That took a bit of work!

Easy Care Yard

Gravel, succulents, and a few spheres. Attractive and easy to keep up with little water.

Creative Railing


The porch and steps on this East Austin home are very creative.
