ABC Wednesday: K is for Killington

I took this shot of the road sign for Killington Drive last April because I thought I might use it for K in an ABC Wednesday post at some point.

Since this street is in my neighborhood and when I walk around the block I encounter it, I have shots through all the seasons of Killington Dr.
I think the mailbox below qualifies as pop kitsch. I always laugh when I walk past it.
The shots above are spring on Killington and the next shots will be summer.
I kid my neighbors who notice me taking pictures all the time that I'm not with the C.I.A. or F.B.I. If I was I'd be doing a poor job of being surreptitious.
Looks like the kiddies at the house below on Killington have fun swings.
Now I'm moving into later summer on Killington.
I kind of like how the house below is hidden by the trees.
These shots weren't all take during the same year. I had way too many choices when looking at neighborhood walk shots that included Killington. For one thing when I walk out of the neighborhood to the main road which takes me to the pharmacy, I walk briefly on Killington. If I go in the other direction to the trails leading to the lake I often choose Killington. I live on a dead end road (it's called a court but it's really a short dead end road).
I think the next summery looking shots are more towards fall but the leaves aren't changing yet.
Now it's in the full force of fall on Killington. Well not now but it was when I took the next few pictures.
As far as what it's like in the present we are just beginning into early fall/autumn where I live.
I can't wait until it does start looking like this in my neighborhood.
I think we may have an earlier fall this year than we normally do as I started noticing changes earlier than normal.
The pine trees below were catching the snow on Killington during last winter. I actually shot them from my back deck because the taller trees on Killington are visible from my back yard.
I particularly like the snowy Killington trees against the blue sky.
One last winter tree I shot during a walk on K is for Killington. I never knew I'd say Killington this many times in a single post.

Thanks for the seasonal tour of your Killington neighborhood. Its so lovely and homey. I would love to have a tire or any kind of swing in my yard. Kids and swings just go together.

EG CameraGirl said...

What a great idea! I know where there's a street name that begins with K here in East Gwillimbury so I may steal your idea for the next round. :))

I wouldn't mind living on Killington Street! Especially if it was near the gorgeous yellow tree! That is beautiful.

Enjoyed thinking of your neighbors wondering why you were taking pictures alll the time (same thing happens to me).

WoW! What wonderful photos.
Killington looks like a nice place to live. Of course the autumn shots are my the reds, golds, oranges of that season.

Very nicely done!
Thanks for sharing.
