Are you enjoying your Memorial Day weekend? The weather is simply perfect for all those family cookouts. I surely hope you're all remembering why we are celebrating this weekend. It's a time to remember and pay respect to all those men and women who fought, and died, so that we may enjoy the freedom that we so love.
My family is chock full of veterans from all the different branches of the Armed Forces, including my Michael and my brother Artie. Our sons, sons in law, grandsons and all those who came before us have all gone off to serve this great country of ours to keep it free.
It's already partway into the afternoon here. I slept late this morning, and then Tootsie and I went to Home Depot to meet up with Eddie and Dee Dee. Here, we bought ant spray, two new rose bushes, lots of marigolds and a few new garden tools. We're going back there in a little while to get more marigolds.
I underestimated how many we would need to plant along the whole garden on the other side of the house. (Only the flower part of the garden.) When we get ready to put the veggies in, we will get more marigolds for them too. Something has been feasting on all the bulbs and plants in my garden and I'm trying to discourage it from eating any more.
Today, I will share with you a photo art that I made from a picture of a rose in my garden. I had found a beautiful rose poem on line and wanted to scrap it.
In a couple of weeks, I hope to have some new photos to share of my granddaughter, Jasmine. Folks, her parents just received a letter from the school department telling them that "Jasmine has earned a perfect score on one or both sections of the 2012 Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment Test (MCAS). This is an incredible achievement that is worthy of recognition and praise." There will be an award ceremony on June 5. Jasmine, I love you and am sooooooo proud of you!
Now I shall leave you to enjoy the day with your family. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
