I fear for the fox with that spider above his head...

Or are they in collaboration ;-)
Lisl: Who knows what is going on here, Cherie!

Joli dessin, j'aime bien la légende notée sur la porte.
Lisl: We used to sing a song called "Yesterday is History, Today is still a mystery......"
i love the gate Lisl... we have foxes all around us we can usually see them crossing the road at night...
yesterday i turned Penny's hanging basket of flower to face the sun... i swear that a spider almost that big started silking his way back onto the railing below....petersmile

my camera was too far away to fetch it and take the shotsad
Lisl: That would freak me out, Peter - I love insects, but are not comfortable around arachnids!
That door is a gem Lisl!
Lisl: It's beautifully done, Richard

Very amusing isn't it Lisl, sly being the operative word
Lisl: It' all in that eye, Chris
It looks like someone has adapted their surf board as a back door Lisl.
Lisl: Whatever - a very nice entrance, Chad
superbe porte!! amitiés
Lisl: It really is nice, jean pierre, and good day to you!

It could be a fable story The spider and the fox", but I don't remember.
The full quote often reads: "The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present."
Lisl: It also comes from a song: "Yesterday is History, Today is still a Mystery, But what a Day it's going to be Tomorrow"

I understand the quote, but not the symbolism. A spider stands for' Diligence',a fox for'Cunning'. Perhaps diligence is day's work done,and cunning,- readiness to face the morrow ?.
Lisl: Just a bit of whimsy, I think, Hugh
I love the door. A painted a fox last year as part of a scene called 'what does the fox say', on a desk for my grandchildren. I love the saying on the door too. Great find!
Lisl: You are artistic then, Mary! I love walking the suburbs of Bristol - you never know what you will find
I also echo my comment to Elizabeth today in that I'm not a graffiti fan but something like this I find very artistic and enjoyable.
Lisl: I suppose this is a bit different from normal graffiti, Brian
Most original. I hope the gate is well fixed or it may get pinched
Lisl: Yes - it is a bit vulnerable, Martin
A good message to go along with the artwork...
Lisl: Nice, eh?
I am not sure what the picture and the text have in common! Still it is quite a gate!
Lisl: Someone's nice whimsy, Bill
