Generations of Volunteers in the Historic Town of Dillsboro, NC

Many of the buildings in the historic Town of Dillsboro, NC have flower boxes on the front. 
 
 
 
For generations, merchants have been planting pansies in the boxes to brighten the town up.  Shirley's Boutique in Cannon's Corner...at the corner of Church Street and Front Street is no exception. 
 
 
 
Over the 30 or so years she's been there, Shirley has been planting pansies and every year like clockwork the little volunteers pop up at the base of her building.
 
 
It's a nice notion to think that these volunteers are descendents of
pansies past ;-D

Hi Mona...

I love volunteer plants. I have two butterfly bushes in pots right now (and I need to get them planted) that are volunteers. One is HUGE. I'll have to write about it!

Good Morning Wayne, there are volunteers all over Dillsboro.  I love it.

Hi Richard, don't you think photos of volunteers might make for an interesting contest?  Not for me to spearhead you understand, lol.  Yes, you absolutely should write about it and I'm hoping for one of your great poems.

Hi Mona,

Good to see a few volunteers at work. Better when they look really good too.

Thanks for sharing the shots.

Have a great day in Dillsboro.

Best, Clint McKie
