Mothers Day in Royal Oak, Michigan

As it was a nice sunny Mother’s Day, we headed out to downtown Royal Oak, where they were having their annual plant / outdoor stuff sale – all nice and colorful.

I'm not exactly sure of what the statue above means - but it is different - and a very unique symbol of Royal Oak. It's "The Star Dream", by Marshall Fredricks - the sculptor also responsible for the "Spirit Of Detroit". On that, the Spirit better soon get his redwings shirt out.
The above Scarlet Macaws are actually used car tires – nice and inventive. Pretend dogs and wickerwork tricycles. Sweet.
