The mail receptacles along our block are pretty much the standard you've-seen-one-you've-seen-them-all sort. Most have a newspaper box on or near the post. Quite ordinary stuff.
Some of the denizens, though, have undertaken to liven things up a bit, a little decor, in a manner of speaking. This one is ours spruced up, or more accurately, yarrowed up with a bit of greenery and pretty white flowers most of the summer.
This is the neighbor to the south. Rocks and RoundupTM.
The neighbor next door eschews frivolity, lets the lawn grow around his post. But the neighbor two doors to the north has the winning display in my opinion. Perhaps my liking for portulaca influences this judge's selection. For years in my prior residence we had a rose moss ground cover in the front yard flower bed. Ir reseeded itself every year and thus required little maintenance.
The lady at this residence says she has no such luck. She resets the bed each year. It is a bit past its peak right now, but portulaca is so colorful and varied yet so uniform in height that one has to admire it.
