My Patriotic Yard

Good afternoon, friends! 

I have been busy decorating outside 
and I did have it done yesterday, but
I didn't take pictures until evening 
and I had lots of shadows, so I wanted
to take more today. I had it all decked
out for Flag Day and now until at least
the 4th of July.

I love all the shadows on the wall,
don't you?

We made the big wooden thing between 
the windows, from two old weathered

The bird house has a green and white
license plate on it and I want hubby 
to replace it with a Texas one that is
white with red and it may have a little
blue on it. 

The pictures, below I took a little bit
ago....I put the star on the wall on the
wood, with the single flag, but you 
could barely see it, so I put it on the
brick, where you can see it a little

I painted the bird yesterday, it had been
on the chain link fence and had faded 
so I painted her and made her a nest in
the old chippy milk can. One of my best
friends gave me the little flag and this is
the first time I have been able to hang 
it out.

Old coal bucket, thought I would 
paint it some time, but decided that
the wavy sides would not work too 
well for a folk art scene.

Well, I hope you all like my patriotic
front yard, I enjoyed decorating it!
Thanks to my hubby for his work on 
putting the wood together, (I did help)
without it, I couldn't have had all the
fun decorating! 

One thing I would like to say is that a 
lot of us love our flag and country, the
way it is! We don't need to change it,
from what our fore fathers wanted it
to be, so I say if you don't like it, you
are welcome to leave!  There are lots of
other countries on this earth that 
might suit you a little better! We also
need to go by the Constitution! If you 
agree with me, spread it around! We
need to fight for our country with 
words! Remember this, when 
November gets here,  we have the
right to vote and change the direction
that OUR country is headed!

Until next time~
