A Touch of New Orleans


I saw Samantha Brown touring New Orleans on the travel channel and thought I recognized a building, at least the style of it. This is Jonathan's Oyster Bar, downtown on Liberty and State Sts. I took this photo a while back before they changed the name, but thought I'd post it anyway because I love the red geraniums hanging amid the white wrought iron and there weren't any the last time I was by.

I'm so glad you posted this photo, Jill. It does look like NOLA, for real. Great photo.

Thanks for your visits--I'm enjoying them and coming to your blog, too.

If Eric from Paris comes to Portland, we'll take him to Three Doors Down Cafe at SE 37th and Hawthorne where my older son is sous chef.

By the way, I wish I were retired, too!

I have a set of red geraniums in my driveway by the garage in a big green pot that knocks my socks off every time I look at it.

I have been to Fairfield County several times. It always reminded me of somewhere in Switzerland. I went there or through there the last time when I was photographing covered bridges in Ohio. It is a lovely county.

Whoops!

I forgot to say how much I did enjoy this photograph.

What are the flowers growing in the hanging baskets? I have become rather obsessed with mine this year! I am planning next years now.
