While our north-side windows here overlook lovely woodland and the lake, the view to the south is plain street. A couple of trees, a car lot – and, diagonally across from us, a building site where they’re constructing a new primary school. Up until last week, the board fence surrounding this site was an inconspicuous white.
However, the town council came to an arrangement with some local graffiti artists, who covered some of the pink and set to work transforming the fence. A couple of school classes will be involved soon too, and the fence, which is still a work in progress, now looks much better:
I can’t wait to see what the schoolchildren do with their section!
Next week, I’ll have a picture of a different kind to share. A UK book blogger has very kindly offered to do a cover reveal for The Attic Room on her blog – as soon as it’s live I’ll put up a quick post with the link. The cover isn’t what you’d call pretty either, but I really like it. It’s effective in the same way as the cover of The Paradise Trees, and it suits the book. So watch this space! 🙂
Here’s this week’s photo of the woods – and much as I’m enjoying watching the graffiti artists, I still prefer this view!
