Decoration Day 2013
Flowers Mom and I put at her parents(my Grandparents)stone on Decoration Day June 23rd.The Orono Cemetery does this the last Sunday of June for people to put flowers at family gravestones.My Grandfather Alex died in 1955 and my Grandmother Vanda died in 1961.
I wish I lived close enough to my parents resting place so that I could visit occasionally, but I'm in DE and they are in RI. Don't know that I will ever make it back up there, and I'm moving to NC soon, so that will even widen the gap.
And Decoration Day is the original old name for Memorial Day here in the U.S.
Looks good, Barry! Colorful and cheerful!
The cemetery where my grandparents are buried allows only artificial flowers. You aren't supposed to place items directly into the ground, other than a flag.
