Saturday PhotoHunt - Hanging.

This week's theme for Saturday PhotoHunt is

HANGING

Today sees the start of our week-long Mary from Dungloe festival, and so Main Street is full of hanging bunting.


There are also plenty of hanging baskets, full of flowers.


Everything looks at its best, to cheer locals and to greet the many visitors who pour in from all over the world.

Enjoy your holidays, those of you in the Northern Hemisphere,
and Happy Hunting.

Visit TNChick for more participants.

Makes me want to come to the festival. (I checked out your link.) Can you spare a room for a few days? Would love to check out the music and festivities.

Nice choice for the theme.

It was nice of them to arrange this festival in time for your PhotoHunt post :). Sounds like a lot of fun - it has an interesting history.

Have a lovely weekend!
