Flag Site

Landscape Design Rule: 1 focal point/area. Flags are focal points, frontdoors are focal points. Flags, sited at/near frontdoor diminish both.
Flags reeking of cute? Must I go there? A flag with the word 'Welcome'. Oh dear. Your home & garden say 'WELCOME'. Remember, CUTE KILLS.

Interesting post. I get frustrated with the flag the flag that goes up and stays up so I found a small metalworks American flag that is meant to stay out and blends with the bedding. If I want to hand a flag or bunting to celebrate a national holiday, that's one thing but the one that is just always flying goes against flag etiquette.

As for the mailbox "mood flags" - I find those odd. Do we need to hang a flag says summer? When it's 98 degrees outside, maybe not!

Fun post and fun thoughts.
