I’m pulling out the Red, White and Blue for a patriotic salute in the Potting Shed for Independence Day!
And waving the flag, step-by-step on my ladder.
Flags are tucked in bottles and flower frogs, flying in watering cans and pots and a bee skep is buzzing with a little Americana flair.
Blue and white Ball jar bouquets of Endless Summer Hydrangeas and Queen Anne’s Lace, join a pair of watering cans and vintage scale in red, like the colors in the US flag: White for purity and innocence, Red for valor and hardiness, and Blue for vigilance, perseverance, and justice.
And a stars and stripes banner drapes and swags between the ladder and a seed box.
A took a page from my Smithsonian Seed Catalog Calendar with a reproduction of an Iowa Seed Company catalog to wave from my ladder.
The cover of the 1889 catalog of the Iowa Seed Company catalog, “Seedsmen to the American People,” features the Washington Monument and White House as a backdrop and “Old Glory Geraniums” on the front for a patriotic salute.
And I chalked up my door with a little red, white and blue.
However you celebrate, take a few moments to remember and give thanks for our military men and women who protect and serve us.
