Tina has invited us to post pictures from 2022 that we’ve not so far shared. I have so many to choose from, but I’ve picked some out that, for me, have an evocative sense of place. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

  1. Would you say that your region is home to as many idiosyncratic things as you found in Mississippi? More generally, does every area, if you look carefully, have more or less the same IQ (idiosyncrasy quotient), or are some places noticeably weirder than others?

    1. You can find idiosyncratic things (and people) everywhere. We don’t have the same confidence with garden art in the UK, but the creative American eye will find many quirky delights here.

  2. Your images do evoke sense of place, each one a story. Although I’m not a fan of bottle trees I absolutely love the bottle tree truck photo. Glorious.
