Memorial Day

It's a beautiful day and it is for remembering our veterans who have served our country in all branches of the armed forces. I'm very proud to be an American and hope you are too.
The iris that I haven't seen in over 16 years are blooming! We have always been in SC in May so it is a lovely sight because my dad planted them way back when... I really like the colors.
And the pretty geranium plant in Henry has many buds starting to open! There will be a full bouquet soon!

Looking back, and I cannot forget that I fell and broke my shoulder four years ago on Memorial Day weekend; just another kind of remembering.....


  1. What a beautiful geranium blossom/color....must be a hybrid? I love drying geraniums and rose petals for a potpourri kettle. A very nice, light, pleasing scent.

    I too love iris, but they don't do well in this part of the country. Too wet, I think.

  2. Your flowers are beautiful! My sister and brother-in-law have been planting flowers since I've been here but I can't wait to get back to my own place.
