Memorial Weekend

Many thanks to the brave men and women who serve their countries so gallantly.We saw this display on our walk this morning. It speaks volumes.
Larry is taking such good care of our garden. These are the peas he planted back in late March.
They have their first blossoms!
God provides the water which comes down the downspout and into the rain barrel.
We planted lots of flower seeds last weekend. These are little bitty daisies getting started. A small maple tree has joined them. Maple tree seedlings are everywhere.

Did you ever have a spur of the moment absolutely fun date? Yesterday was a work day for me, beginning at 7:15 a.m. Larry and I took a walk to McDonald's at 6:00 where we bought fruit parfaits to have for breakfast. It was already daylight, and delightful. I hope you have a great weekend!

I just love that its daylight at that time of the morning makes getting out of bed easier. Your garden will grow fast once that nice weather hits them.
Its the 1st day of winter for us tomorrow and its just starting to get chilly.

You're right, Suzanne! It's much easier to hop out of bed when the sun is already up. I'm sorry you're daylight hours are getting shorter - that's the worst thing about winter. I don't mind the cold nearly as much as the everlasting dark.

That display really does say a lot.

Wow, your peas look great! Darn those maple seeds. The seedlings are growing everywhere here too.

Your early morning date sounds very sweet and like a great way to start your day. Made me smile. :)

The peas look your becoming a farmer,a knitter, and God knows what else:o)...rarely do I rise to walk so early...but it is fun and I did get out of bed early a lot this week...does that count? :o) Ginny

Thanks, Daisy! It was a good way to start the day. A fruit parfait made a nice change from my usual dish of bran buds and walnuts, and it was a great morning for a walk.

Ginny, I can't take any credit for the gardening. Larry is doing all the work. This year we have four tomato plants, up 300% from last year! :>}. The pumpkin plants look great, and we're hoping for some actual pumpkins this year. Last year we got lots of blossoms, but not a single pumpkin. :0/
