Coca-Cola Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Outdoor Wednesday and ABC Wednesday
C is for Coca-Cola
January 27, 2014, Amory, Mississippi, USA
Coca-Cola (and other soft drink) advertising murals were once very common sights.
But over time many have been lost. This one was restored in 2010.
I'm not sure of the original date, but 'Delicious and Refreshing' was the official slogan in 1904.
It adds a bit of history to this pretty little park squeezed in between two buildings in Amory, MS.

  3. Although I have given up soft drinks, I still remember Coke as "the pause that refreshes" on a hot summer day! That's a nice photo of a bit of nostalgia.

  8. Hi Lea, I have a quick question for your. How are your hellebores?? Mine did not like this cold, and are flat as pancakes, and I'm seeing dark spots on their leaves. This is the first time I've grown them (I didn't pay much attention to my mom's plants), so I don't know if this is normal or not.

  9. Thanks for the reply on my blog Lea! Thanks Lea! Mine have new growth, but no buds, and I didn't think to cover them before our surprise snow. I knew they grow up north, and you're right, it makes more sense now why they trim them back. Hopefully they'll recover, and if the leaves don't perk up, I'll trim them back this spring after it warms up.

    Thanks for letting me know I'm not alone!
