The flowers at Milwaukie City Hall

I have previously posted photos of the beautiful hanging flower baskets downtown Milwaukie. Now I want you to see the flowers at the city hall. There is a lot of pride in the gardens here and all along the downtown Milwaukie streets.

 

 

Here is a close up of some of the above flowers

 

 

And another one

 

 

Bright, cheerful flowers

 

 

I think this flower is especially pretty

 

 

 

Now look closer

 

 

Wow, huh? I just finishing reading a book (The Hour I first Believed) where the main character told a couple of stories about the good luck of Praying Mantis.
