Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

Purple Petunia Bubble Bath

Carytown is a hip neighborhood of Richmond, VA.  We love to head up north for an hour and a half and stop for lunch.  Then we take a long walk down Cary Avenue and through the Monument and Museum Districts.

Virginia Commonwealth University is located in this area.  Instead of occupying giant, soul-less modern buildings, many VCU offices and classrooms are located in rescued old brownstones and mansions located throughout the neighborhood.

This witty flower display is located in front of a chic hair salon.  I fell in love with it.  The salon occupies a sweet old building, an early 1900's house painted that lovely green accented with lavender.  The lady in the tub is bathing in purple petunia bubbles.

I've seen old claw-footed tubs used for flowers before, but the mannequin and the petunia bubble bath took a lot of imagination.

I am quite sure that the lady in the bubblebath draws lots of stares. Quite clever indeed.
