Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day in the US.  It used to be called Decoration Day' a day set aside to decorate the graves of the Civil War dead of both sides.  Even today, the graves at Arlington National Cemetery are decorated on this day with small flags.  This tradition has fallen by the wayside for the most part.  The day is more noted as the beginning of summer than anything else.  In one way, that's OK - those who died in the wars died to keep our way of life intact; what's more American than enjoying time outdoors with friends and family?

These roses are in our side yard, and like everything else growing, went from mere buds to full blossoms overnight.
