8/2/2015 Sunday - At right is a picture of a vine growing at the base of the apartment steps. It is flowering now so maybe there will be time for it to make it to fruition. It could be a loofa gourd or I have no idea what else. Time will tell.
I have also pictured my kitchen door steps. The hanging basket was home to a family of wrens this year. The steps have never had a handrail so I decided to roll this old iron wheel out beside the steps to serve as a makeshift bannister.
None of the original cement steps that led into this house came with hand rails. I suppose they were slowly added at the insistence of the insurance companies. I know I got a quote a couple years ago and "no rail: at the steps was a concern they voiced. Bah on insurance companies! I have auto and farm insurance totaling $2,500 due in a couple weeks.
