étrange ces drapeaux qui viennent fleurir le jardin déjà rempli de fleurs

I find it very nice that so many American's fly the flag at their home - it is not nearly so prevalent here in Canada, but I think it is wonderful!

We always flew the flag. We have a pole with both the American flag and one representing the Army (the branch my son is in). The pole had to come down though when our yard was dug up. It should go back up this summer.

Lovely how they look.

Powerful image, Craig. Canadians are a little more laid back when it comes to our patriotism. It's there... but just below the surface. ;-)

Scenes like that only happen here in England during sports events, typically football, so our flag seems to be associated with soccer, not patriotism, a totally different approach to the flag to the USA it seems

The colours are great in your image

hey Craiger--every picture tells a story--and we all view it in a different way--provoking message--billy

@bronzebilly u.k.: You may be the only one to "get" what I'm doing here. In that regard, the photo has missed its mark. But, I refuse to spend a paragraph telling the viewer what to think and how to interpret my photos because then I miss the mark as well. Appreciate your comments as always billy!

That is about as un-correct as it could be, God bless 'em, especially in California. Lovely image.
