On the Fourth of July

A friend sent this to me and i thought i would share it with all of you.




































Between the fields where the flag is planted, there are 9+ miles of flower fields
 that go all the way to the ocean. The flowers are grown by seed companies.
 It's a beautiful place, close to Vandenberg AFB.
 Check out the dimensions of the flag. The Floral Flag is 740 feet long
 and 390 feet wide and maintains the proper Flag dimensions, as
 described in Executive Order #10834. This Flag is 6.65 acres and is
 the first Floral Flag to be planted with 5 pointed Stars, comprised of White
 Larkspur. Each Star is 24 feet in diameter, each Stripe is 30 feet wide.
 This Flag is estimated to contain more than 400,000 Larkspur plants
 with 4-5 flower stems each, for a total of more than 2 million flowers.


Grenville and Beatrice wish all of you a Happy and Safe Independence Day Weekend.

I think the word is overused, but I will say it about this beautiful flower flag: stunning.
Happy, Happy Fourth. Hope you're not getting too much rain. It's mostly sunny here, and VERY windy. Love the wind. :)
