With Memorial Day (U.S.) approaching, some readers may be curious as to the meaning behind this holiday. Specifically, how does Memorial Day differ from Veterans Day? Or perhaps you'll be using Memorial Day Decorations for the first time this year and need some pointers.
For instance, how is decorating cemetery monuments for Memorial Day different from doing so for Veterans Day? The former comes on the threshold of summer (the last Monday in May), so there are better options for Memorial Day decorations than for the holiday that falls on November 11.
In terms of plant choices for a patriotic color scheme, could you use a little help? Peruse my selections in this article on red, white and blue flowers. Even if you're not decorating for Memorial Day, you may wish to bookmark this piece, as it will become useful again later in landscaping for Independence Day.
