Veterans's Day honors all members of the Armed Forces who have served this country valiantly, and in a very big way. They served and fought to protect us, to keep our country safe, and to preserve our way of life. Veterans gave their time, and risked their lives for you and me. In some cases, they made the ultimate sacrifice.
This holiday originally was called Armistice Day and was first celebrated in 1921. In 1954, President Eisenhower changed it to Veteran's Day in honor of those who served and died from all wars.
Got the garden ready for the hard freeze tonight.Supposed to be 29F. We use tarps, sheets, towels, old throw rugs, anything that will protect the plant from frost touching them. I do so love the mums cuz they will bloom right through the snow.
