signs, signs


I've seen this sign posted on this tree in the front yard of this house for years.


Linking to signs, signs.

What does it mean?

VP said...

I guess it is stop in Spanish, by the way in Italian it means 'tall'...

Fotolosopher said...

They just want you to slow down in Spanish...or maybe they want Spanish speakers to slow down so they're easier to understand, or perhaps they want everyone to stop whatever they're doing. Now I'm really confused! :)

I'm a baritone myself. :-)

Birdman said...

Perhaps the family name of who lives there? Other than Spanish, just taking some swings in the dark.

I love the trees and plants. It seems to be a weird place for the sign..Have a happy day!

TexWisGirl said...

slow is good. :)

Karl Demetz said...

Strange sign... it seems nobody do understand it :-)

Sandra said...

Sharon Anck said...

There's a message in there somewhere.

Interesting and curious. Be fun to learn the history! But whatever, it's a great shot for the day!! And I hope you have a beautiful day -- stop or go, alto or soprano!!

poor tree! rev's comments always crack me up!

William Kendall said...

A curious addition to a yard, I'd say.

Halcyon said...

Funny!

Linda said...

Odd. The shape says Stop but what's that's little symbol under ALTO? It echoes the shape of the tree.

Lol @ RR! So left or right?

RedPat said...

Looks like they want to get you to go around the tree!

Taken For Granted said...

Interesting, but confusing sign. One day you might just ring the doorbell and ask about it.

I like this photo a whole lot, Lois! Thanks!

Annie Bear said...

Well, the front yard sure is beautiful! It was fun reading all these comments.

VioletSky said...

It doesn't look like theres much room to go directly around the tree. I suppose it's as good a place as any to hang this sign.

Kate said...

Meant for the tree, motorists, or pedestrians

Divine Aleligay-Tan said...

Maybe that tree is too high or the road is going uphill...i don't know. :-) Anyway, they put a sign so its FYI. :-)

Jim said...

Alto is High in Spanish which I guess the tree is.

It would be neat if you saw somebody in the yard to ask.

Lesley said...

Curious!
