Happy Flag Day – Flower Walk

Happy Flag Day everyone! Flag day commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on June 14th, 1777. I hope everyone is able to wave a flag today! We hung these two antique tin flags on our porch wall for the day, though they look great up so I might just leave them!

The fun thing for us about Flag Day is that we get to celebrate our nation as well as my dad as it is his birthday!  We will be having a BBQ for dinner and homemade chocolate cake with chocolate almond frosting and toffee pieces for dessert!

Before putting the meat on the grill this afternoon, we sat out on the porch with some fresh watermelon and then walked around the garden to see what was blooming!
