My mom used to always put Irises on the graves that we decorated every Memorial Day. She called them "Flags". I just call them my favorite. :)
It never ceases to amaze me that no matter how cold, wet, warm, or dry the weather is, these flowers always blossom for Memorial Day. Always.
Every time I see a flower in "real life", I have to smell it. Every time I see a flower in a picture, I want to see it up close, close enough to see the pollen.
Do you have special Memorial Day memories or traditions?
