Despite September’s rainy weather, Charm City Streets encountered a staggering amount of new and new-to-me artwork all across town. Let’s take a look

Global warming affecting Baltimore! Many days this month the weather was more spring-like than early winter-like, and so art in public spaces bloomed all around the city much like an unexpected bumper crop of spring flowers
While driving the other day along North Howard Street near the armory, I suddenly heard Tweedy Bird saying: I tawt I taw a puddy tat! I did!
