A Scene Seen on the Side


This is the far end of a long charming fence depicting some flowers native to the county, if not Willits specifically. It guides burrito eaters to a garden patio with tables. I'd like to guide visitors here to a spectacular mural on Victoria Daily Photo just seen today. It's almost unbelievable!

Does one go around the fence or through it (I see a hinge... is that a door...) - it looks enchantingly enchanted, anyway!

I think at one time, the gate was used, but now you just walk around the end on the right. 8^)

superbe cette peinture murale, avec la nature qui s'invite dedans. très belle photo.
his beautiful mural, with nature that comes inside. very beautiful picture.

Tash said...

Terrific photo of an interesting mural. Hope Willits is OK and not affected by the terrible fires up north.

Hilda said...

I think it's charming. I wouldn't mind a fence like that at all.

Bursa Daily Photo said...

What a nice idea! much better than a plain ordinary fence

Uma por Dia said...

It is wonderful but I like this one pretty much too!

Kym said...

I love murals. I should take some photos of the one's in Eureka.

Marie-Noyale said...

I think I prefer your mural. THe perspective takes your mind away...
I love the plants growing through the planks!!

Benjamin Madison said...

Well, I like this too. It's a nice fence and a good photo. Looks like a great place to eat a burrito and I am very fond of burritos. Thanks for the link, but the most ambitious Maltby mural is yet to come so stay tuned.

ah ha! Similar to what "Louis" has here and will have more of next Wednesday!

Kim said...

This is charming. What a wonderful alternative world can be created with a little time and paint. :-)

This mural has some funk and soul going on. I miss the puzzles.

Neva said...

A lovely way to give directions...very pretty! How are the burritos?

Knoxville Girl said...

What I find charming are the real flowers hanging over the fence next to the painted flowers. Life imitates art in Willits.

Olivier - Merci, mon ami.

Tash - Thank you so much, we are not even smelling smoke.

Hilda, Uma, and Bursa - It looks like it would be simple enough to do if you sketch it out ahead of time.

Kym - in a region like ours, you can probably find some closer to home than that! 8^) I'll be watching your blog for them.

Marie-Noyale - The ocean is nearly an hour's drive away with our winding roads, but less that 20 miles as the crow flies (if we could fly). It's nice to be reminded of it, and the flowers that like to be closer to it. The real ones here seem almost impertinent to intrude. 8^)

Benjamin - I look forward to everything you dish up in Victoria, and I'll watch for more Maltby.

Louis - our kindred souls crave art!

Bergson, Kim - Thank you, I agree! The more of these I find around town, the more I want to attempt one myself! But, I'm too busy with this blog, I think. ;^)

Palm Axis - Your most recent post on your blog is, hands down, theeeee most full of soul. But your wish is my command.

Neva - The burritos are great! I made a link in the text to the picture of the front of the place posted way back in March.

K.G. - I like the real plants and flowers bursting and spilling too. I wonder what will happen next!

Thank you, everyone, for your kind comments.

OH wow! What a pretty fence!!

Palm Axis said...

Thank you and thank you.
