This isn't garden related, so bear with me. It's fun stuff.
For the Fourth of July, we went to Keystone Heights for their small town parade. It was awesome. They still throw candy, there's a lot of community floats, and the parade is pretty long.
The best part was the guy leading the parade. He lives in the area, so we see him around quite a bit at all the local festivals and events. He often hangs out in Micanopy also. As you can see, he's riding a Brahman bull decked out with all the festivities. He's also got two geese that parade with him and an Aussie dog. I didn't get a picture of the Aussie - she was running through the crowd saying hello to everyone. But, he made the parade for me at least!
The sign is actually attached to the bulls horns. Amazing.
Here are the parading geese. How often do you see that?
Kaity was a great flag waver. My dad also taught her to do the fancy parade wave, so she did that to all the pretty girls riding in the old cars.
Will was a patriotic ninja for the parade.
Small town life...it's priceless.
