F is for

A glorious spring day finally here on the square and I took my camera out at lunch to see what I could find for 'F'.

Follow along with me, won't you?


You can see that the warm weather and sunshine has made all our trees suddenly, overnight, explode with flowers.
It was such fun to stand under this tree and look up at the blue, blue sky.


As it is a just few days before Easter, every door of the Baptist Church had floral crosses. So lovely.


The next building north of the church is a florist. This hasn't always been a florist.

An older photo of this building will pop up again when we get to 'L'.




And the next building north of that is the funeral home, established in 1923. The grass is little brown now and the flowers are still pansies to withstand cooler weather, but Mayes Ward-Dobbins always has the most beautiful landscaping.

But all of this was not my main destination. Instead I turned back and went a block south and east to Fire Station No. 1 home to the Fire MuseumThis is the 1879 Silsby Steamer, manufactured up Mary's way in Seneca, NY, completely functional, fully restored in 1992, and one of only five still in existence. [Oh, and what is that in the lower right? Brumby rockers.]

What a fabulous spring day to walk about the square!
