It's Time For Another Stroll Through Rosie's Garden.

Happy Memorial Day to my readers
and a big "Thank you" to all who have served
and defended our flag.
We are indebted to you.

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

This is my patriotic garden - red, white, and blue.
Red poppies.
White and blue larkspur.
White flowers of cilantro.

Queen Elizabeth rose with the ice plant.

Yellow coreopsis,
red poppies,
blue bachelor buttons,
white iberis or candytuft.



My swan, Irene, likes it here amongst the foxgloves.

Bottle brush plant.

Red, White, and Blue!

In a sea of blue larkspur,
I found 4 pink larkspurs.
