A Colorful City

Richmond is a really colorful city. I was whipping my head around taking pictures as fast as I could, and I still missed some! Any white spots on the pictures are because it was raining. Rain even got on my header picture!



This makes me think of the Beatles and Kaleidoscope Eyes. Maybe that is what it means?



There were so many murals that I have to divide my post into two parts. These are the most colorful; the next post will have ones a bit more mysterious.

This last photo is a wonderful masterpiece of modern graffiti art on the walls of buildings.
You can admit that it is great to combine colors and black characters against the backdrop of vivid colors.

Very colorful city indeed! I've never been to Richmond but would love to visit some day. The mural with kaleidoscope eyes is very unique and a bit scary lol :-)

Hello, I always enjoy your photos.

Ginny, to answer your questions .. you use a grow bag the same as a pot. The grow bag is to be lighter. I do know you have to water more often.
I do not know the yellow flower, I wish I did, I love it.
Bonnie simply woke up one day and could not smell. It was awful listening what she went through with it.

Happy Valentine's Day,
Carla

Very colorful murals and my favorite is the one you used in your header of the bikes, though they are all very good. I would like to go to Richmond proper. I have been there a couple of times but there are a lot of old houses in the city I would enjoy looking at.
