FOURTH OF JULY!




Isn't this one of the most beautiful things you've seen?  The colors are so beautiful too!  Just right.



And what would the 4th of July be without old Toby Keith!






WHAT A CAR - RIGHT?







Did you ever wonder, if you put all 50 state flowers together in a bouquet, what would it look like. It's truly beautiful.

LOVE Toby Keith!!! Heck, when he got to the chorus it was all I could do to stay seated. :)

This bouquet was neat. I was, of course, looking and anticipating each of the states I hold dear (NM, Texas, Alabama ... and of course Arizona). But the finale ... all together. Wow. That's the best, isn't it? Together.

Have a great day, Sandie!
