I think it would be very appropriate for those of us who have room, to 
plant memorial gardens for those who perished last week (was it just last 
week?).  I could come up with a list of blue flowers that would be hardy 
here, and red and white is always easy.  But for those of you who have 
planted memorial gardens, what do you think about perennial vs. annual or a 
combination?  If perennial, it seems to me it won't require as much 
attention (and remembering) as a garden of annuals would. What is your 
feeling about landscaping to make it a "secret garden?"  How about seating 
to rest and remember?  Does anyone have any experience or 
suggestions?  Margaret L
