Have You Seen This Sign

How about some more signs for Carmi's Thematic Photographic
and joining them with Wednesday's Words on a Friday?
(12 Italic words)

Let's begin from the healthy mix of flowers and a few herbs growing like garlic and thyme automatically watered mostly by rain gutters.




Apparently trespassers have obeyed this sign. A search around the perimeter reveals not one violator shot.

But I have to wonder if it's a bit of a red flag posting such a sign? Or, are they  trying to reduce their amount of customers?



How inspiring to place motivating words and thoughts for your deck, gardens or windows!



"I do believe in an everyday sort of magic-
the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience




(If you're wondering that's my reflection in the windows.)


With places, people and works of art and the like;
the eerie appropriateness


of moments of synchronicity; the whispered voice the hidden presence,




when we think we're alone." - Charles de Lint




Poems read out loud always play like a musical for all that will listen.

Now how about joining me at Cafe by the Bay for a glass of delicious, good old fashion lemonade?

Nice to see you Karen :) What a brilliant series of signs, the first seems a bit harsh :)

Interesting take - as so often. Loved your observation on the first sign - made me giggle - though I do wonder how controversial that sign might be in your country. Aren't signs amazing? No stopping now.

Hello Karen, wonderful collection of signs and messages. And like live and let go. I wish someone would pull our weeds.
Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

I'd love some lemonade!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

It's a store that has that sign? Weird.

Fun series. I need the weed pulling sign.

Karen S. said...

Me too! I'm thinking I should make one myself!

Karen S. said...

They certainly are! More for humor rather than seriousness in this little town! Thank goodness!

Karen S. said...

It does but they're really being stiffly humorous! ;)

Great use of the words - and I love the if no answer pull weeds sign. I could do with one of those here.

I loved your reflection.

“Don't forget - no one else sees the world the way you do, so no one
else can tell the stories that you have to tell.”
Charles de Lint

That made me think of YOU, Karen!

Excellent way to use the words. I love all the signs. I've seen one here in Adelaide (Australia)that says "Forget about the dog, Beware of owner"

Jocee said...

What a great selection. I especially love the first one and the 'pull the weeds' one :-)

A glass of lemonade sounds good. I like the first sign. I wonder if it will keep people away from my house:) Have a lovely weekend.

EG CameraGirl said...

Ha1 I love the sign that says to ring the bell and if no one answers, pull some weeds. I NEED that one!!;)

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Yes, I have missed this.

Susan F. said...

I love how you have associated the words with these pictures! So very creative and well done ... and I amazed that you used a quote from an author whose last name was one of the words! Well done!!

My garden needs that sign...
