Silver Star, Montana

After our family reunion in Phillisburg, Montana in 2011, my Sis and I stopped to see her Daughter/My Niece who lives in Silver Star, Montana. Renee has a store/US Post Office called Granny's Country Store..
This is Silver Star, Montana. Beautiful.
A river runs behind her house too....
Granny's Country Store
Notice the hollyhocks on the side of the store....
Oh, and the neat old Post Office inside...
While we were walking up to the front door of the store, I commented to my Sis that the exterior walls sure looked plain...they needed something...she agreed. Then we remembered we had paints in the car! (We had originally taken all of these paints to the family reunion, but alas! we never got around to doing any painting).
So we did what any crazy creative artist would do....Paint! But what were we going to paint???
Why Hollyhocks, of course! Now I have to give my Sister most of the credit. She has been an artist for many years and I'm always amazed at her abilities. She knew that we would have to paint BIG and in a large graphic fashion in order for the flowers to be seen from the highway as people drove by...So we painted big HUGE!
And a little bit of Blue Flax...
And butterflies...
More hollyhocks...
And more hollyhocks!
Hollyhocks Everywhere!
My Niece decided to contribute too....
And her son added his special touch...
Oh and did I mention that a news reporter from neighboring Butte, Montana just happened to come by and snap a picture of us...we were in the newspaper! Click here to see it!
