I so enjoy seeing the Red, White, and Blue....that I have our country's flag on display year round. The light over the garage illuminates it at night, so we don't take it down.
When the flag becomes frayed, then a new one is replaced and the old one is gently folded and presented to the local fire department for the proper disposing.
The Japanese maple in front of the flag turns a deep rich purple in the fall, and the view is never boring. I can sit on our porch and this is one of my sights.
