Midsummer Snapshots

Last night there was a sunset rainbow over north Raleigh,

and there were fairy lights strung up in City Market.

Today’s pleasant surprise was this nice man selling Italian ices on Fayetteville Street.  I recommend the lemon.

And then there was a giant thunderstorm, and when I got home at dusk, this crape myrtle was attempting to swallow my downtown house.

It’s a lovely place in the summer, this Axis of Cool.  What’s happening in your neighborhood?

  1. I just looked at the lineup- I hope you’re going! It looks like a great time! Hayes Carll was one of my favorite shows last year, and I took Wylie Gustavson’s yodeling workshop at Merlefest. Also, Jeanne Jolly is a Raleigh girl, and she has a beautiful voice. I’ll be thinking of you out there!
