GOSIA'S FENCES AROUND THE WORLD

Our son and daughter-in-law went for a walk last weekend.  They live 15 miles away.  It looks like it was a nice, quiet trail.
However, someone had been there before and left a welcoming sign for those walking their dogs.
Here is a nice fence for Gosia's meme.  I asked if they would mind me sharing their photos just for today, and they were happy to.  Thank you My Lovelies!
I have seen photos of these boxes in other areas.  The one they came across says, "Little Free Library - Libraries big and small, we love them all.  Take a book, return a book."
Such a neat thing to do for the community.

"That's the thing about books, they let you travel without using your feet."  ~ Jhumpa Lahiri.

A great quote and very appropriate for this time of self-sheltering.  
Thank you for hosting Gosia.  If you would like to see other Fences Around the World, or join in with your own, you will find the link here.

    1. I agree Ginny and hopefully people will add a book. I thought of going over there and putting in a few old children's books that I used to read to our son when he was little. We have also donated to our own library.

  5. Nice images from the walk! I just left some books in a little library on Monday. I'm sure people are bored and need something to read.

  7. Sidewalk art is on the list of safe activities in our community. Most I've seen are "thank-you" to first responders & medical teams.

    I love the welcome & the pretty trail.

  9. Lovely place for a walk. We have a similar tiny library in my neck of the woods. The chalk art is funny and good for a much needed laugh.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

I appreciate all who look at my blog, but I am unable to publish businesses or anonymous visitors.
