Saturday Snapshot

May 5, 2012

Our neighborhood is designed around a concept that’s popular in this part of the country.  Houses are built on small lots and have front porches.  To encourage a sense of community, there are sidewalks and pocket parks throughout the neighborhood.  This is one of the statues in the largest park in the neighborhood, and it’s one I can relate to.

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books.  It’s easy to participate – just post a picture that was taken by you, a friend, or a family member and add your link on Alyce’s site.

    I want that statue for my back yard! How perfect!

    Kathy, I’ve seen housing communities such as yours. We have a Sun City here in our town – based on the same concept as the one in Arizona. We’re not quite old enough to live there, but I’m almost at the lower end of their scale. Anyway, I’m not saying you live in a Sun City community, but the small lots and park concept is similar.

    I love this statue. That was me as a girl. You too?

    Very cool!!

    That is so cool! Might be a little startling if you happened upon it at night and didn’t expect it. Lol.

    OMG i love it. So pretty! Great shot. I love the house in the background.

    What a great shot! There’s several abandoned lots in my neighborhood. I wish my city would turn them into small parks.

    Now that’s my kind of statue! I live in an older town but they have been creating scattered small parks. It does make the town look and feel nicer.

    What a lovely place to live, and of course I love the statue. This was definitely me as a girl.

    Gorgeous! I love that statue and the shrubs next to it too… makes me want to do a little yard decor of my own 🙂

    I relate better to this statue than any I can remember. It seems so natural, and the setting works for me.

    I love that statue – I remember spending so many summer days in that exact position when I was a kid. 🙂

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that statue. It’s like she’s secluded and in her own world. Haven’t seen anything like it.

    I love that one! Do all the parks have statues?

  25. May 5, 2012 4:04 pm

    What a cute statue! It almost looks real!

  26. May 5, 2012 4:05 pm

    Love this. So inspiring – both in and of itself and that someone thought to put it in your park!

  27. May 5, 2012 5:55 pm

    What a lovely joyous statue- I’d enjoy seeing that one every time I went for a walk, I bet you do too.

  28. May 5, 2012 5:56 pm

    I love the idea of pocket parks (never heard that term before) and I ADORE that statue!
