Memorial Day Arrangment


We lost my Dad  a little over a year ago and as I was trying to figure out what type of flowers to buy to put on his grave, nothing looked right.  My dad wasn't a flowery type of a guy and so I started to ponder "what" I could put out at his grave other than flowers to honor his memory.  This is what I came up with.  I think it's fitting. At Christmas I did an evergreen spray.  I sure miss him and of course making a project like this is emotionally draining, turned out well and I think he would have liked it.  Miss you Dad!!! Memorial Special Man Anything goes Anything Goes In a word - Dad

    Lovely arrangement. Thank you for joining us at The Friday Mashup and for sharing this moment for your dad with us. ((hugs))
