My father is probably the most patriotic man that I know. Maybe it's because he fought in WWII (submarine service). Maybe it's the generation he's from. I don't know.
He flies a flag 24/7 with a light on it at night and his house is filled the red white and blue. So it did not come as any surprise to me that he wanted his front lawn to be a red white and blue garden. And it's really rather pretty.
