Flowers and Cherries and the Theater

Some of us have shared our flowering back or front yards. We saw the most beautiful flowers hanging in baskets and planted along the streets on our way to Big Fork and then on to White Fish in Montana.  I couldn't figure out how they managed to get so many flowers into these baskets, and the colors were so vibrant.  I hope these pictures do justice to these.

The theater behind some of these flowers was another of our "live theater" presentations, only this one had actually some professionals.  In Big Fork, many young people come for summer theater to build their resumes.  They earn a weekly stipend, a place to stay including utilities, and work with some amazing folks.  Ats this theater we saw "Thoroughly Modern Millie".  It's a musical about a young woman who goes to New York to make her way and to find a husband.

Cherries are very popular around this time in Montana.  There were a number of stands along the roads on our way toward Big Fork.  These are not like the pie cherries I'm used to from Illinois, but big, fat cherries that are dense and sweet. 
Thanks for sharing in one of our road trips in Montana.....more to come in the upcoming days.  It is such a beautiful state!
