Summer Postcard - SkyWatch Friday

I just couldn't resist. In the small rural village of Macon, there is a house with a trellis and a white picket fence. The lady spends a lot of time fussing with her flowers. She obviously has a green thumb! She always has her flag on the porch. I really liked the way this came together.

  29. That's a charming cottage! And a postcard view for sure. I don't garden any more, but if I did, this looks like the kind I'd like to have. (We're RVers; I just admire other people's yards, flowers, and hard work.)
