Now we were on that ride up into Maine.

My boyfriend says “Did you see that HUGE FLOWER?”

It is February how could there be a huge flower in Maine of all places.

I spin around as he tells me I will want to see it and take a photo to show YOU

Boy does he know me or what.

 

So as you can see from the photo about it is a BIG FLOWER and a BIG Butterfly.

Now he is a welder by trade

I am the secretary of a Garden Club maybe just maybe we could make up a few for

around town, just a thought.

I want him to make a fountain for in front of the Safety Complex to go with the beautiful plants

maybe this type of Art would be pretty too.
