Venturing a bit further from home - sharing a rare sight

I was on my bike today, so I did not take my best camera. Wish I had though.
First I came to a local sight we like and are proud of: A Shell station - preserved and treasured as the antique it is.

A few houses down I ran into the rare sight, the yard of what turned out to be a woman in her eighties. The neighbors are proud. I got permission from her daughter to take a few shots, going from left of the property to the right.
"You ought to see it at Christmas. She said. That's when the decorating really happens".

I promised to be back, trusting you'll look at my photos if I take my good Sony

1. Be careful Mira. In the next True Blood, those lawn gnomes turn into vicious killers!

Hell, on true blood, everything turns into killers lately

2. Hi there! I'm trying to be careful.

Also friendly. Neighborly. Enjoying the sights.
True Blood crossed my screen for a bloody minute once. I had no idea something like that exists on TV.
I had to say a very sincere WTF.
Loud.

The Shell station is terrific!

I am wonderfully gob smacked at the shell station! Delighted it is still there.

and bless the energy of the lady who manages to keep up with her garden decorations.
( altho I AM of the "less is more" school).

Hope you can visit that yard during Christmas.

btw...thanks for all the pics of your area. My traveling is severally curtailed these days, it is so nice to see other places via camera.
