5 Plus Photos on Friday

I will tentatively make the claim that I'm going to try to update more regularly, starting with the return of South Philly windows. This, of course, could change at any second. But anyway, we are back to cats. Big orange cats with cranky faces. This cat look like he's frowning and going, "I say!" in a British accent.

And this here is what you call a tuxedo cat though I like the term Holstein cat better. Or, in this particular case, Groucho Marx, since he appears to have a mustache.

Easter has arrived in full force in S. Philly. Chicks and bunnies abound. This rabbit looks as though he's pouring over a leafy cauldron, preparing to cast evil spells (by the way, I heard this story on NPR's Wiretap last night about a guy who can't stop eating rabbit food. Very convincing and it makes me almost want to buy rabbit pellets, but I'm pretty sure it's fiction. If only I knew Jonathan Goldstein well enough to phone him up and ask).

Blue yet hollow-eyed embroidered bunny.

Oh, okay, this is one of the beautiful buildings I walk past every day on my way to work. You can't see the full scope of it and the day was dreary (note that the streetlamp is one though it's only 9 a.m.), but it's huge and green--a castle. I believe it was used as the home of the Addams Family in the film of the same name (a nod to Charles Addams, who studied at Penn).

Hick bunnies in love.

I like the multitude of different rabbits in this window, especially the African American rabbits (one in the forefront and one peeking from behind the bunny on the far left).

Oh, and last but not least, this white cat I saw on my way to work the other day. I considered it good luck for the rest of the day. Her eyes exactly matched the plant.

I've always been curious if it's the same houses that decorate their windows for every season or if various random houses each decorate their windows only for certain seasons.

As far as I can tell, it's a little of both. The people who decorate for holidays tend to keep doing it, but then there's some people who seem to only do it with a particular holiday. I'll try to pay more attention and let you know.
