Memorial Day

A Red White and Blue Welcome

A Red White and Blue Welcome

Busy schedules too often keep us from celebrating the moment.  Memorial Day is going to be gone before I realize it is here.  So, I am making a CONCERTED EFFORT to mark the day by proudly displaying our nation’s flag on the front porch.  Now would be the time to replace the spring wreath and hang a bolder accent on the front door in patriotic colors of red white and blue.  Some additional flags in the large vine wreath on the wall behind the porch swing add more Stars & Stripes. 

Above is a picture of our front porch, representing our nation’s colors.  Happy Memorial Day.  It is more than a day off; it is a time to remember.
