Reflections of Patriotic Scenes

Last weekend I house-sat for some friends downtown. I took a stroll through town and enjoyed the patriotic displays on several homes.
A flag waving in the warm summer breezes is reflected in this stained glass door.

One of the historic homes overlooking the Bay displays a large flag from the second floor verandah.

Further down the street this flag drapes its stars and stripes.

A flag flies proudly from the side yard of this house.
Even hotel banisters were draped in patriotic spirit.

View of the bridge from Cannon Park.

A welcoming porch proudly sports its patriotic spirit.

Patriotic and pink!
Stop in tomorrow and join me for more of my downtown summer stroll:).

Ooh, I liked that. That is a good idea. The tour I mean. I was at the Grand Hotel in Michigan and I have never seen so may flags. They are there all the time. I will look up those pictures.

Hi Kim, I don't know how you do it, but just by showing us some pictures from your town, simple scenes of this and that, you make me want to hop on the next plane out of here that is headed in your direction and come see it all for myself!! Loved seeing those american flags hung for the holiday! Makes me remember who I am when ever I see the red-white-and blue!! so sorry that I have not been around of late, I have been missing everyone!! Even when I don't post, I am thinking of you and wondering how your days are going this summer. a thought and a hug from here, Debby
