Header Challenge - Where am I?

Actually, I am at home -  the travelers were my younger son and his two daughters. While they were here we all took a stroll along Carroll Creek in Frederick to see water lilies now blooming. Header photo by Marianne. Thanks Marianne!)

Header Challenge - Signs



My header was the sign on the McCutcheon's building where people have been buying apples and apple products for 78 years. They also had portraits of some of the famous people over the years painted near the top of the building.Below is just a few on them. 


The City of Frederick dates back to the 1700's. Here is a sign on one of the older buildings.

The sign on the afternoon train




The newspaper moved to a new building, but left its sign.


                          Some signs have been declared "historic" and cannot be disturbed.

More old town or Civil War?

Header Challenge - Curves


I was enjoying the shapes (and colors) of the flowers when I thought "curves" for a header challenge. The first four shots were taken on our visit to NC.  My header is a farm a few miles of north of us. I was there to pick strawberries on the farm behind me.

Header Challenge - Gardens



We made a weekend visit to Lynn and John's for their annual end of the school year party, which has become a mini family reunion. Lynn's gardens always bring color and beauty to the festivities.
 





  Cut flowers from Lynne's gardens adorned the tables.


and finally, an unusual dragon fly.
