Polka-dot lawn

What was already the most colorful house in Austin now has a polka-dot lawn.

Polka-dot lawn

The lawn belongs to the multicolor stucco house with the blue-tile roof at the intersection of West 29th and Glenview, where Bryker Woods starts shading into Pemberton Heights. As the buffalo grass took on its faded fall and winter color, evidently the owner decided it was time to brighten things up a bit.

Knowing that John Erler of the Elk Mating Ritual Hour grew up in Bryker Woods I phoned in to his show this morning. He suggested we call a FlashMob to appear and dance a polka. Purple Haze, anyone?
