Looking through old photos and came upon these from my trip to England, June 2007. We did not see the inside of the palace but had an extensive tour of the wonderful gardens. I took these pictures with my old Sony point and shoot. I did get some great pictures from that trip.

After the Civil War ended, Decoration Day was established as a day to decorated the graves of the war dead with flowers. It gradually changed to Memorial day and was established as an official holiday in 1967 as a day to honor those who died in the service of our country.
The photo above is our city's way of honoring those who died for our country who were from the area. Each flag had a tag with the name and other information about that individual who gave their lives for us. I looked at some of the tags and saw a lot of Vietnam veterans....my generation. By the way, we had a Memorial Day parade...the first in over 5 years. Due to budgetary issues, we were unable to afford a parade and a service was done instead. I understand that fund raising was done to support this year's parade.
Wishing everyone a happy holiday weekend! Remember those who gave their lives in the service of our country.
PS: Look closely at the photo and you can see the wheel of our "gun".....from WWII, I believe.

This weekend, will set up my front porch....bought a beautiful fern at Home Depot to hang. I always feel that when the porch is ready, summer is here. Of course, that isn't always the case when the weather turns cold and wet and the glider is covered. I hope that this year I can sit out and watch my world on Pagel Street go by.
Sitting on this fence, small and with the sun glinting off is a Bluebird.
