Lavender Elegy

My lavender rhododendron contributes a visual elegy to the Memorial Day observances in 2019.  Memorial Day is a time for sadness, along with the pride and gratitude that the same plant helped visualize in 2018.

Lavender and the Flag

Tho not a color many would choose for a flag, lavender goes well with red, white, and blue for Memorial Day.|

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Flags or Banners

Late May in my part of the USA is a time for blooming rhododendrons and several days of observing Memorial Day in various ways.  On 2018-05-30, I found good conditions and a good angle for a composition with my new flag and old rhododendron.  Tho not a color many would choose for a flag, lavender goes well with red, white, and blue for Memorial Day.
