Beautiful pictures of Old Glory. Thank you! I like them all, and that Peterson's Garden pic is awesome.

My flag is flying high, but the flagpole needs painting. Can't do it in the rain though. Still, the important part is the flag. :)

Out in Santa Monica, the freeway, by the freeway on-ramp, there is a huge, huge flag that rises out of some recycling center/garage. It's beautiful. And during Memorial Day and Veterans, for about a week in advance, the MIA flag is hung.

I've seen in the news where the flag gets stolen, from time to time. Sad. But how happy when the flag is raised again! A constant reminder on my drive to and from on the freeway!
