Red and Green

Downtown Selma is filled with red and green both with real flowers (foreground) and artificial Christmas wreaths with red bows. It's a festive sight, even on a cloudy day!

The red flowers certainly makes for a very pretty street scene and complement the wreaths nicely.

I wonder of planting flowers like this can be attributed to Mrs. Johnson and her highway Beautification campaign in the 60's? I know there were plantings before then, but I don't recall as much of it before Ladybird.

Thanks for all your comments.
Clueless, I really hadn't thought about Ladybird Johnson getting the downtown beautification started. I do remember that downtown used to have some sticky evergreen bushes before they got these more colorful flowers.
