Forget-me-nots...very appropriate indeed. Beautiful.

A right choice for the day, Jan! Perfect!
Wow Jan your photos are amazing. You're right. We won't forget!
We have forget me nots that grow wild in the hillside.How many mothers have lost their sons?In High School, the boys were taught to sing," How many .........?"
This is very nicely done.
What a beautiful tribute to Memorial Day. :)

A simply splendid and loving post to all of our fallen. Blue is such a poignant color. P.S. Your hydrangeas will out grow mine in no time just watch and see;)
A wonderful tribute to our deserving service men and women who have sacrificed so much for all of us. The forget-me-nots are lovely and the perfect illustration for this post.Thanks for your nice comment on my post today, Jan. I'm afraid the heat has made me a bit cranky:) Like you, I have been trying to get as much garden work done as I possibly can without much time for blogging. July in Christmas sounds like a great idea!
One of my favorite flowers, beautifully captured ... a perfect tribute, Jan!
Hey Jan, That's a nice Memorial Day Tribute. Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
I'm a bit late getting to it, Jan, but what a beautiful tribute you have created!
Hi, Jan, I'm also late catching up on my blog-reading, but have to say how much I love this tribute! Thank you. Pam x
Hello there Jan !I missed this post and how beautiful a tribute with the almost perfect flower .. you have to forgive me that ? .. poppies .. Flander's poppies are what we and our UK friends hold as the flower of our "Rememberance Day" November 11th on the 11th hour ..I know we both hold it dear to our hearts because we are past military wives .. we understand this a little better than those who have not lived this life. How have you been ? I try to compare notes and progress with others that have our health problems in common .. I ma struggling but still in the garden : ) it saves my sanity ? LOL
I am late seeing this post, but i am glad I didn't miss it. Your photo collage is inspiring. It is a fitting tribute to those who have sacrificed for our country.
Thanks so much for visiting and taking the time to comment! Please enjoy your TODAY and all of the gifts in YOUR garden of life!Jan
