Damn it, I don’t want to be that guy but I like the first version better.
When first painted in 2012:
Ed. Note: When your gardens start to get full of tomatoes, cucumbers, whatever you’re growing – send an email to email@example.com with Garden Haul in the title and please include the neighborhood where you grew it.
Above: “Tonight’s dinner harvest! Grown in Petworth, where our tiny cubicle of a garden produces a steady stream of herbs and lettuces, plus tomatoes (5 varieties represented here), peppers, radishes, cucumbers, edamame and eggplant. Grapevine has over 50 clusters of table grapes this year, and we had some blueberries and strawberries. Fig tree sadly froze this winter, but is regenerating from the ground up.”
“this comes from our plot at the LeDroit Park Community Garden.”

“Fare gates down – free ride at Farragut north. Pitch black too – all escalators down.”

From Friends of Screen on the Green:
“Join us for the second feature film of this year’s Screen on the Green summer festival, The Poseidon Adventure, tonight on the National Mall.
A classic disaster movie with a memorable cast led by Gene Hackman, this film follows the fateful journey of the Poseidon, an ocean liner larger than the Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary combined, on its New Year’s Eve voyage. When a tidal wave slams into the vessel and it capsizes, the survivors journey through the upside-down ship in an attempt to survive. You won’t want to miss this action adventure story!
The movie will begin at sunset on a huge 20’x40′ screen on the National Mall between 4th and 7th Streets NW – RAIN OR SHINE! We suggest you arrive early to claim your spot and bring snacks to share with friends.
Join us next Monday at sundown for Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn in Desk Set. He’s an efficiency expert and she’s a marketing genius whose job is threatened by his super computer. Talk about a complicated office romance!”
Thanks to a reader for sending:
“The commercial property at the corner of West Virginia and Florida Ave NE, which has been empty for eons, is apparently going to be a new yoga studio.”
NAMASTAY TUNED! 405 YOGA is moving to DC Fall 2015, offering Vinyasa, Power, and Rocket yoga to rock the sweat and elevate the spirit.
Thanks to all who tweeted us these posters from Woodley Park. Last week a reader wrote in noting that these “trees had been chopped”.
