Flowers on Memorial Day

By Patrick Fisher

This weekend we celebrate Memorial Day. One of the things it reminds me of is how flowers are associated with the day.

At ceremonies not only here, but around the country, wreaths will be placed in cemeteries and at memorials. Some ceremonies require placing them in front of a tomb. Nearly every year there's some news footage or pictures of the President of the United States placing a huge wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
