Monday Show and Tell

It's Memorial Day...a time of reflection to remember those who have served in our armed forces and have given their lives for our freedom and for those currently serving...We appreciate all you do! God speed.

It is also the 'unofficial' day of the start of the Summer reunions, barbecues, running our toes in the sand at the beach, carnivals, toasting marshmallows over an open pit, gardening, lemonade, and abundant warm sunshine and so much more.

My pictures today celebrate all of the above. The first one is of a child's antique car we found along our jaunt through Pennsylvania. Look at that face! It has been given it's own flower bed so we can enjoy it all summer and give it the honor it so deserves.

The second picture is also a 'truck' filled with red, white and blue flowers to celebrate Memorial Day. We use this as our centerpiece.

The third picture below is my kind of garden decorating, a Grecian lady gracing our courtyard with hydrangeas.

Enjoy your holiday and all the Show and Tell Monday blogs from Make Mine Pink.

I love your flowers but I have to say my son wouldn't like the car being used that way! He's five and we got him an old one he loves peddling it around! Thanks for sharing your garden it is just lovely!

Hi Susie,
Haven't seen you much lately....The hydrangeas are beautiful...I wish the Armed Forces could see all of our blogs today, they would know they are truly appreciated. Thanks for your tribute.

Suzi, I love the little blue car filled with flowers. It brings back so many memories. I had a little blue car, my brother had a red one. Wish we had them now! Thanks for the stroll down Memory Lane.
