Saturday Symmetry


Many streets in Raleigh are named after one of the 100 counties in N.C.

Say Perquimans 3 times fast.  I have a mental block with 

Pistachio which I rarely have to say.  I'm thankful I don't live on Perquimans Dr.

Transylvania and Rutherford Cos. are in the NC Mountains.

Middle photo is full of all kinds of symmetry and shadows.

  1. Love the middle photo with all the angles and colors......street names can be pretty perplexing we agree!!

    Hugs, Pam

  2. I am okay with Pistachio, but my block comes with saying anemones. I always seem to get an extra syllable in there and my n and m mixed up.

  3. My mom has issues with words that have too many consonants. I think one of my favorite street names from nearby is Wiggleworm Road. You ever wonder how the naming process went? Like, was there a committee that sat around and tried to come up with the most ridiculous, difficult to pronounce names sometimes? Just thinking out loud...

  4. Perquimans is such a cool name. Love the pot of pansies!

    At least there is some imagination sparked by such names. Nearly every street in the Hutch's town is named for the royal family over the years...Albert, Victoria, Mary, William, Elizabeth, John, George... or for the obvious... Hill Street... duh... there is one, very short, Gaelic name; Tom-A-Mhoid, which roughly means 'place of justice' - it's the knoll where the community would have gathered to make decisions on the fate of offenders... YAM xx

  7. I love your pot of flowers in the sun and i would not want to live on Transyvania or Pistachio street. in fact I think all streets should be numbered, so much easier to find addresses.. Saint Petersburg is that way, only a few named streets, Savannah is almost all named streets

  8. Love those shadows! At least our place is easier to spell.

  9. We love seeing your pot of flowers. Street names sure can be interesting and there doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason for how they are named. We live on a road that is named after one of the founding families of our town.

  12. WE have an easy county to name it's :Clay! :)
    But too many people mess us Duval which is Jacksonville's county. It's doooovall with a real seasoned southern accent.

  13. We have many French words attached to our roads here in Metro Detroit, and folks from other parts can rarely get the spelling correct!
    One famous street, Gratiot, is mispronounced a lot!

  14. Transylvania is a funny name for a street. :) XO

  15. Transylvania... that's awesome! Not sure I'd want to live on that street though.

  16. We LOVE your selfie shadow! So cool! And your street names are really interesting. Street names can be so strange. We live on Fourth Street, not 4th Street. If somebody accidentally uses the number instead of the word, the Government offices can't find us ever since computerization came it!

  17. I think the more street that intersects Transylvania should have a more clever name than Rutherford.

  18. I agree totally with Foley Monster! Really!!!!

  19. We wonder if those big street names cost the City more to make than ones that just say, maybe, Park Ave? Whoever named the streets in our neighborhood, must have been dreaming about the Old West: Prairie Trail, Overland, Falcon, Cascade, Adobe, Cougar Circle, etc.

  20. Those are Pretty Pansies on the Patio.
    Mom has a hard time saying funeral. It always comes out fineral.
