"In Loving Memory"

This is a paving brick, in a nearby public garden, in memory of my mother; the Orphan Reds are offering a flower for all.

Penny Cooper, the most official of the dolls, lays the tulip down.

"Glory be… for dappled things" is from "Pied Beauty", by Gerard Manley Hopkins.

I was going to save this for Memorial Day, but today seems fitting.

what a sweet picture. It is so amazing how much expression/emotion you pack into these red haired dolls photos.

You're acquiring some skills there, lady. I like the way the the tulip resembles the redheads.

Thanks, Michael, bink, & Sparker!

I was very pleased to spot that red-headed tulip, so nicely tattered too.
