  1. Now just what tartan is that?

    • I don’t know! There were several different ones covering the bridge and decorating the windowsills (some possibly not real tartan, for shame!)

  2. A verra Scottish bridge, aye? Good shot.

  3. How festive! Has been a while since we’ve attended Highland Games; must do so again.

  4. What a pretty kilt billowing in the wind 😀

  5. how quaint! great shot.

  6. This is wonderful! Fergus sounds very Irish!

  7. What a fun idea decoration! I have never been to the Highland Games – for shame!

  8. Love it!!!
    We had the Highland Games here in Mount Vernon in August too. Right by the river right by the bridge—I wonder if next year the town might do this. MB

  9. How cool is that! I guess I missed the games. 😦

  10. I can’t find a way to comment on the yellow flowers and the four mailboxes. I just want to tell you they are LOVELY. As a city daily photo blogger, you have inspired me to seek out the prettiest mailboxes in Greensboro! I can’t think of ANY off the top of my head.

    You asked about “Friendly Avenue” on my blog. Here is the response I posted.

    Lesley: We have a Friendly Avenue that is one of the longest road/avenue/streets in the city. It runs east/west. The name comes from the Quaker College, Guilford College, a few miles west of Greensboro. According to Guilford College’s website, the college remained largely isolated from the time of it’s construction in the 1830’s. In the 1920’s, the began calling the trail into Greensboro “Friendly” because the Quakers, students, and townspeople had such a good relationship. Hence, one could take the Friendly Road/Avenue. (extracted from: http://www.guilford.edu/about_guilford/).

  11. What a great idea!
