Regent Square Day Lily #3… Pictures of Lily

We planted a lot of day lilies under the misconception that deer would not eat them. They destroyed the ones in our front garden but relentless application of repellent has saved the beauties in our back garden. The dark purple ones will be next to bloom. I think I will call this one Pictures of Lily. Thank you The Who.

Today’s Walk Through Regent Square

We have a young active dog and each day Lady Trey requires about four miles of walks to keep her calm and well balanced. We live in Regent Square which is one of Pittsburgh’s best neighborhoods for walking. It borders Frick Park so you can walk through neighborhood streets or paths through the woods.

On today’s walk we came across a beautiful variety of daylily that I have never seen before. The colors are quite striking and I thought worthy of sharing.

Pittsburgh Air: Beautiful but Deadly

When I was a child I was tested for allergies. I was positive for tree pollen, dust, dander, ozone ragweed and mold. I didn’t realize it at the time but it meant I was generally fucked for the rest of my life.

Due to the warming of the planet, every year becomes worse for allergy and asthma sufferers. Recently there was a video of a pollen bomb in South Carolina. Maybe we haven’t had a pollen bomb in Pittsburgh but we certainly have a lot of pollen hand grenades like this one in my neighborhood.

Yesterday The Pittsburgh Post Gazzette published that Pittsburgh once again received an or F from The American Lung Association.
I love the Spring but am happy when the tree pollen is over.

Walking the Dog in Regent Square

A couple of years ago we got a new dog, the seventh in our life as a couple. We thought it would help us as seniors to make sure we walked every day. Our dog Trey, is a joy but has more energy than any dog I have ever had. Unfortunately as a rescue she is not fully socialized yet to other dogs but improving. so the dog park is out for now.

We found her sweet spot to be between four or five miles a day. Fortunately we live in one of Pittsburgh’s great neighborhoods and we border Frick Park so our walks can be a strenuous or easy as we like. I have started to use my phone to capture images from our morning walks. Took this one today and it made me smile and thought it was worth sharing.

Halloween in Regent Square Part 3

This is the third in a series of my neighborhood at Halloween. There is no doubt that a friendly competition exists between some of the houses in the Square. This house though is always the house to beat. First of all it is without any decoration a beautiful house. I understand that the owner teaches design at a Pittsburgh University which clearly provides an advantage. I talked to this lady working on the man in black and she told me this year’s theme was the tooth fairy in search of a mate.

I plan to do some video of these houses at night and this one will be at the top of the list so stay tuned.
