Artful Living

weekend of red white and blue

I cannot help but feel a sense of pride, when I start to see flags hung in preparation for the Memorial Day Weekend. Hearing marching bands, seeing those who have fought for our country wearing uniforms, riding in convertibles or on fire-trucks make me feel all emotional.

Seeing red poppies bursting against the blue of the ocean, make me smile.

Red geraniums, metal watering cans and moments in the garden to reflect and to remember those who so bravely served and to those who continue to do so for the red, white, and blue.
Happy Memorial day weekend to each of you.
