Friday Favorite: Flags

June 6th, 2014

I love flags, them!  When I was a kid I was always the one hanging our flag outside for holidays.  Things are no different now, I have almost always had a flag or two in the garden.  Last year I only had one small one in a flowerbed, this year I decided to go all out!

I’ve been eyeing these triple flag holders for quite a while, they’ve been on my Amazon wish list for many years. Bunting is also something I’ve been wanting to get but just haven’t gotten around to it.

Last week I stopped at a local store and they had both items! I snapped up a few and came home ready to decorate the house and barn.

Now it’s looking perfectly patriotic around here and that makes me happy. I love the flags so much I’m thinking of getting another triple flag holder for the chicken coop, no doubt they’ll love a little summer decor as well. Colombian flags will also be purchased to hang out on the appropriate holidays, nothing makes me happier than celebrating both of my citizenship countries! I don’t think I’ll be able to find those locally.

Do you hang a flag in your garden?
