Friday My Town Shootout

This is our town for the next two weeks as we travel around.  While we're in Seaside, Oregon right now, this is very typical of most towns that we've been through all over Oregon.
Big, beautiful, seriously ubiquitous pots of flowers hanging from light posts, shopping centers, and almost any spot that will support these huge balls of color. Those, and flags throughout the downtown areas!  How the state maintains all of these is beyond me. Summer is a happy place in Oregon!
Have a wonderful weekend, and check out more shootouts here!

  4. What a difference they make to a city or area. We have flowers around as well and I think that it is money well spent because it lifts hearts in these downcast times.

  10. Love the joyous colours in the second ball of happiness. Those baskets must surely lift the spirits of everyone who sees them. I know they lifted mine on this cold, grey, winters day.
