Flower Friday




Angel Dory you
left us with a precious gift by teaching us to smell the flowers.


Photos taken at Cameron Village
Raleigh, NC



If you are old enough to remember a Big Boy hamburger, raise your hand.
Oh and their strawberry pie was off the charts excellent.
We don't have Big Boys in NC anymore...this photo was taken
last summer while the peeps were at the Blogville Awesome Retreat

  21. I'm not sure if we had these 'out west' when I was growing up in Colorado, but the statue looks familiar. Way back in the far recesses of my mind.
    Spring time flowers are the best!! You shared some beautiful ones today.
