Memorial Day parades often conclude at a cemetery where taps is played on a bugle and the poem 'In Flanders Field' is read to commemorate our nation's fallen war heroes. While we don't have poppies here on our farm in Virginia, I thought I would share some photos of the various flowers blooming on our property this spring. Have a safe holiday weekend.
