Pumpkin yard

Whereas Portland people, judging by those we saw in the airport the other day, trend toward the frumpy, the casualness here in Seattle (relative to Atlanta or NYC) trends more, it seems to me, toward odd juxtapositions.

On my walk, I found this well-tended yard with an interplanting of roses and pumpkins along the front wall.

    Pretty, and it isn’t raining! Years ago I was asked by a young woman in L.A. what the fashion style was in Portland where we lived at the time. I looked at my well used jeans, my old tee shirt and comfortable flannel shirt and saw the fashion future. Too bad it was labeled ‘Grunge’.
