Bus Shelter Paintings

You may recall that Seattle's bus shelters are decorated by people in the neighborhoods in which they stand. Musical instruments and flowers in orange, yellow, red and green on a purple background adorn this First Hill bus shelter interior. I loved the vivid colors and the artistic yet folksy feel of the paintings in this shelter. For a view of the entire shelter, see my More Seattle Stuff page. This Memorial Day weekend, Seattle's popular Folklife Festival is taking place. Musicians, artists, caftspeople, entertainers, and food abound.

Today in the USA we observe Memorial Day in honor of those who have died in military service. Schools and businesses are closed, and this weekend is often thought of as the kickoff for the summer months.

It is interesting to see that several cities allow local people to decorate things local people use. I like your photo, Kim.

Thanks too for your visits to my blog.

I have good news:

The three baby robins are on their way to Meet the World. I miss them already. It was quite an emotional experience for me.
