Since today is Memorial Day here in the U.S., I thought I would do a red, white and blue arrangement to commemorate the day. The last Monday in May is set aside to honor those who died in military service, with people placing flowers on the graves of the fallen, attending parades and speeches as part of the ceremony.
I used red Azalea blooms (no ID) that were planted here when we bought the house nearly 30 years ago, blue Jacob’s Ladder (Polemonium caeruleum) and white Bleeding Heart (Lamprocapnos spectabilis ‘Alba’) and two types of white Narcissi (N. ‘Cheerfulness’ and ‘Pueblo’).
I’m linking to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden‘s meme, In A Vase On Monday. Click the link to see what other gardeners the world over have arranged this week.
