Veterans Day. They could do anything, including the impossible. In the United States, they were often first generation Americans, survivors of the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl, sons of immigrants and grandsons of pioneers. All were patriots. They confronted Evil, they overcame it. Now that they are almost all gone, we are so much the poorer for it. I miss them.
I found these in a garden center, nestled in the Astilbe.
