A Pony Tree and More, Sundays in my City


Unknown Mami hosts a wonderful worldwide party on Sundays. Hop on over and tour the world.

Today, I have a few interesting sites to show you.

First, a pony tree in Chico. I have neither comment nor speculation regarding the (fake) ponies hanging from this tree. Do you?


        Next, not far from the pony tree, an eerie-dreamy field of trucks:


    

Finally, neighboring Tehama County apparently generates limited trash.
[Note the vertically-challenged trashcan.] 
                                                                             

Thanks for visiting California's true North!
May your week ahead require such a trashcan - at most.

  1. I'm quite enamored with the pony tree! You may have helped me figure out what to do with my old rocking horse!

  3. They are carousel ponies! I bet they just wanted to display them somehow and chose a tree.

    Any stranger than a "bottle" tree?

  5. I like the pony tree except it's the sort of thing I'd expect to see in a horror film! Ditto the trucks. :)

  6. Maybe a carosel exploded to create the pony tree?

  7. Oh my word. I saw your Mission Monkey tag on the side and .....man alive. That kid has grown hasn't she? Have you visited the Pixie website lately?

    Also, we generate about that much trash in a week. We do recycle, but for the most part, our HUGE trash can that the city gives us is mostly empty on trash day. To fill it up, we'd need about a month

  8. I'm sure they employ a midget to empty that trash can. Sounds logical, eh? Oh wait, totally politically incorrect of me, wasn't it. Screw it.

  9. Hmmm still not sure I'm putting it on my list of places to travel to, but with a few more pics I might change my mind :-)

  10. Thanks, everyone. I like your carousel theories. I can't think of anything more plausible, so we'll go with that.

    Rebecca, yeah, she's so tiny in that photo. I need to visit Pixie's site. Thanks for the reminder.
    You're good for not creating much waste.

    Marlene, you always crack me up. I think you might be right. Why pay an average sized person for that job?

    Ca88, I understand. You stay there, and I'll keep posting pictures. Or stay there, and I'll visit Australia.

  11. Hey Robyn, in Texas we call this front yard "Self Storage". What ever doesn't fit in the house goes in the yard!

  12. oooooo the field of trucks reminds me of a horror movie I saw once. It was the same kind of rusty truck...shudder! Blessings, Joanne

  13. What a really strange place, bit eerie actually. Thanks for your visit to my blog.

  14. Beautiful and varied images.

  15. Without lawn flamingos, terra cotta statues of the Virgin Mary, or toilet bowls filled with flowers, it just ain't art.
    But, those tree ponies are pretty nifty.

  16. I'm trying to make my way back after a month of sheer exhaustion. Love those trucks. How's everything else going in Paradise?

  18. Al, quit making me laugh. No, don't quit. I love ya for it.

    You are all making me laugh. Yes, it sometimes feels like I'm living close to Freddie or Jason or some teenage mutant psycho zombies.

  19. Maybe that's where the saying "pony up" comes from.

  20. How far are you from Fresno? Looks a lot like Fresno, but nicer, obviously.

    ReplyDelete
  21. With those ponies, the tree can't possibly be a dogwood. OK, sorry, I'll go away now.

  22. California's true North looks like all of Oregon! I have seen some weird things in my travels and places that I have lived, but this is up there on the list of "weird." But also awesome. Great finds and thanks for sharing!
