In Charlotte..again

My 2nd trip to Charlotte gave a day to go walkabout with my camera. Amazing the artwork you find. This was outside the Marriott Hotel.

When I was here in April this fountain was dry. Amazing what warm temps will do. There were 2 small cildren playing in it.

This little alley held a couple great restaurants.

New home in Charlotte, NC

Ken's house in Anchorage is sold and the new home in Charlotte is paid for. Furniture will be arriving next week Now the real work begins.

The very hot weather has impacted the lawn badly. The landscaping will take a long time to bring it back to where it was in the Spring.

There are lots of interesting features in the backyard. The previous owners had stacked lots of rocks and bricks to use for building planters and walls. At the moment I don't know how I will use them.
The back porch of the house. Lots of lattice work to add vines and flowers. It's very quiet in the yard. All you hear are birds and crickets.

The pool table will fit just fine. Need to get a rug to put under the feet so it won't damage the floor.
