Friday Shoot Out- Flowers in my town.-and a special birthday boy.

Friday Shoot Out
May 20, 2011

Happy 16th birthday to a super grandson.

We are so proud of you.
Papaw and Mamaw.

Flowers in our town.

Yes, flowers.
Initially I was taking photos of very nice flower beds around our town and at Monday's art class I realized we were painting flowers.
Yes these are flowers in our town.

Flowers at our Community Adult Education Center.

Many classes are held in this program from computer classes, basket weaving, painting, oil and acrylics, GED, and testing for jobs.

My poppies.

Debbie's Clematis.

 My  first Clematis in my garden.

Outdoor shrine near the church.

These flowers say to me,

"Come and rest a while and refresh your soul"

Along a walking path for the community.

The Peace Pole at Nazareth Campus.

"May there be Peace on earth."

Knockout Roses are the most often seen flowers in my town. 
They are everywhere.
In private gardens and around commercial businesses everywhere.

Go here for more FSO entries.

Your town looks so friendly and clean with all these gorgeous flowers. It makes such a difference to life when your environs are well cared for, even loved, by the inhabitants.

I am sure your presence only adds to it. dear QMM.

I love the painting of the poppies! I noticed Peonies in one of the shots,it gets too hot for them here, but I fell in love with them while I was in Maine a couple of years ago.
