A Two Salute Sandwich

What a lovely long weekend – Friday grandparents breakfast at our granddaughter’s school and then graduation that evening,  Saturday graduation party,  Sunday Grant Park Farmer’s Market goodies,  and Monday catching up around the house and yard.   

Congratulations sweet girl, you are beautiful and smart and I know you have a bright future ahead of you.  T and C and Red, you outdid yourselves on the party – the food was absolutely wonderful and we had such a good time visiting.

Now it’s been said that you should talk to your plants and that will make them grow better.  Well I’ve talked and talked….and talked….to my ‘maters and I think Mother Nature has been talking louder than I have.  Although my squash is coming along nicely


 my  tomatoes are still the same size they were a couple of weeks ago.  The mini’s have a few tomatoes but the big one continues to bloom with no tomatoes to show from them. 


but I have high hopes that in a couple of months I will see this


 On this Memorial Day I’d like to thank all of our men and women who have served and continue serving for our freedom.


You are always in our prayers.

And here in france my plants are crying too they want some SUN. yesterday we had a beautiful day without a drop of rain we were outside working mowing , I even did some stitching on the terrace... But this morning what do you think;......YES you are right, its raining again.
