Memorial Day

Our town has a wonderful little Memorial Day parade and it goes right by our house on the way to the cemetery.   Some veterans ride by in vintage cars, some march.  The boy scouts, girl scouts, police dept and firemen ( and trucks) parade by as well.  There’s a Revolutionary War drum corps and people in period dress. The Minutemen have their muskets and they are fired from time to time.  Little kids ( and big ones too) cover their ears at the sharp report.   Its a great parade.   Here are some red, white and blue  flowers from the garden in honor of Memorial Day and our Veterans.
