Getting to know and love my town.

Out and about my local area recently, getting to know my town and the streets near by. I've discovered parks with bbqs. I've stumbled along a bmx bike track with crazy looking hills. A pomegranate tree was also spotted. And heaps of old lovely houses. And out of the way coffee shops. And buildings transformed for new purposes.

But remnants of the old uses of the buildings remain. Such as in these signs. Like them?
My maiden name was mercer, which means one who deals in fine cloth or linen. It is from the French and is linked with textiles.
And in the fantastic stationary store next to the scene of my morning coffee, these little fellas were poking about. Delicious.
