Can you believe we're only five days from Christmas? I feel like December was just erased off the calendar this year. I hope you're enjoying the holiday festivities!
I recently came across this fire hydrant wearing a jaunty chapeau.
At first I thought it must have been put there after someone dropped it, but now I'm pretty sure it was intentionally placed-- a wintery yarnbombing!
for anyone not familiar with the term, yarnbombing is using a knitted item to decorate a public object-- like yarn graffiti.
A few days ago, this appeared on that same corner-- a mysterious blue box...
...which is full of poems! I just love this, I love when people make creative, interactive public art.
The poem I chose at random was "The Snowflake" by Walter de la Mare.
This was such a charming, whimsical surprise.
I'm a fan of anything that wraps poetry up warmly and sends it off into the world.
