Flowers/Gardening Life Photography Road Trip Journal

A Walk-About in Safford

Summer road trip. Day 19 Monday, June 20, 2011

A rather quiet day here. I took a walk this morning and snapped a few pictures along the way. Jerry and Brother Keyes played 9 holes this afternoon, and when Jerry came in the motor home, he was moaning. Hasn’t played in a long time, and he was already getting sore. Not quite 9:00, and he’s already in bed. 🙂

The streets around here are lined with small cottages and well-established gardens. Stunning flowers were blooming everywhere.

I was intrigued by this scene and couldn’t make up my mind whether the jeans were hanging for “decoration” or whether they were out to dry. I walked over there later, and they were gone. Guess someone’s wearing them now.

I peered about, but although the okra sign was hanging, I saw no sign of a garden.

More pictures from my walk on my photography blog.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 83 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 63 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)
