But I did finally take my walk around town last week,,, and took some pictures to share with you…..  my home town is not a big town at all  but over the yrs has grown..  there was a time when every one new every one….that was nice…. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh my how fast things change….  but I still love our little town….

In the Summer time is when I love it best,, with so many beautiful flowers and plants around the Court Square, and planters around the town filled with gorgeous plants….. the Ladies of the Garden Club really out do them selves each year…. they put in so much love and time making our Town so pretty….  Ok enough of all my talking ,,, I will show you some photos now,,, I will have to do this in two parts,,, too many photos to show you,,, all at once,,,,, and this way I will get ya’ll to come back again……lol   I know I am a stinker……………

 My Home Town 012

This is the top of the Court House,,, this clock always reminds me of Back to the Future movie,,,,,, I just love the carved detail of the stone work… it is just beautiful…  hmmmm I should have went inside to get some photos….  guess I will save it for next time….

I did enjoy walking round your town. We've had a really made Summer with heaps of rain but today the sun is shining so time to go outside finally! Have a lovely weekend, Catherine x

Hi Alaura, You are right, this town is so pretty. I love the beautiful building where the clock is. The flowers are spectacular. The lions are a great addition to the vintage cannon. I like them white. Our small town has a Garden Club and I am a member. The women do a great job of keeping our down town beautiful. I love where we live.

I am looking forward to more.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs, Jeanne

I enjoyed taking a walk with you around your town. In a way, it reminds me of our small town. Thanks for sharing and have a nice weekend.

It's amazing how well the flowers have thrived with all this heat we have been having in NC. I have a potted plant of petunias out my backdoor and they are still blooming!
