“Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming…
...and the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!”
We have had lots of rain this week…I took this shot between showers!
There is just something interesting about ruins…St. Karin ruins in Visby, Sweden. Founded by Franciscans in 1233, construction extended in the early 14th century. We enjoyed walking beneath the arches of this medieval church.
My star spangled evening tablescape is seen from behind the adagio maiden grasses!
