Flower of the Day – Sunflowers & Boots

***

This one is a table decoration. Every spring the Hospice organization promotes a cornbread & beans luncheon to raise money for all the good work they do. My dad and I always went, and they had these sunflowers in boots on all the tables. There was  lots of good food, live musical entertainment, door prizes, and meet the mayors of all the surrounding towns. It was kind of a come eat, and go affair, but we always stayed the whole time, because we enjoyed it so much.

WEEKLY WEATHER – SPRING

Weekly Weather: Spring

This week’s topic is spring.

In these photos, we have some tulips that I’d planted a long time ago. There is our dog, Bud, who has since passed on. Also, we have Paolo, our cat. At the moment he is sitting here in front of me on my desk. Last is the cowboy boot with flowers. This was at an annual luncheon, held here every March. It was named the “Mayor’s Beans and Cornbread Lunch”, and was sponsored by the local Hospice organization. Ticket sales and donations all went to Hospice to benefit those who needed this very worthy service. I went every year with my dad, and it was lots of fun. The food was good (beans, cornbread, smoked sausages, and either cake or cobbler). The mayors of all the towns/cities in the area attended. We got to meet them. Local celebrities like TV newscaster personalities, and the mayors did all the serving of the meal to the public. Another fun portion was a live band playing music up on the stage, during the whole time of the luncheon. There were door prizes, too, but we never did win anything. A silent auction was held, also. The boot with flowers and balloons (not pictured) were table decorations. This always reminds me of Spring! 🙂
