Remembering Memorial Day

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day this past weekend. Here are two of my Hero's. My daughter Lauren who is serving in the Army and stationed at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, CO. She has been in the Army since March 12, 2012. This photo was taken at her 94 Ordnance Battalion Graduation on Sept. 19, 2012. I am so proud of her. She is standing next to another hero of mine. My father Nash who served in the Air Force. I know this was a proud day for all of our family.

This Spring I wanted to honor my daughter in my own special way. So I decided to plant a red, white and blue garden. This is a special wheel barrow of mine I like to plant annuals in the Spring and Fall. At the local garden center I picked out some Red Verbena, Lobularia and Blue Daze. Then they got some Homestead Red and White Verbena that is suppose to be perennial. So I planted them in the ground by the star. I don't have to have flowers to remind me of my girl but it's a nice way to think of Lauren everyday.

A closer look at the cute pin wheels and Red Verbena and Lobularia. It's so pretty and vibrant!

Here is LOU!!! My faithful garden companion. Every time I get the camera out. There he is walking in front of my lens. He loves to pose and get his pictures taken. Don't worry if you like this one. There will be more...LOL!

I won't ever forget what Memorial Day is all about. It's a day to remember all those who have served and made the ultimate sacrifice for us to be free. God Bless them and those who have served and are serving in the military now.
