We also headed to a local cemetery for the memorial service. I hadn't been to one in well over 15 years, and it was good to be able to expose the kids to the reality of the reason why we have this day off. Eddie needs a little work on respecting the flag - they handed out small flags for the kids to wave, and he decided his was better used as a shovel or to tap the gravestones with - but the more he is exposed to it, the sooner he will learn.
|The smallest hosta - purchased new last year as when we split the others, we missed filling in a hole!|
|The buds are waiting to open - the anticipation this year is WONDERFUL!|
The green beans are starting to pop through the ground, so I expect to have to do a re-planting this weekend for any bare spots that are not growing. Pretty soon the garden will be all set and all I will have to do is keep the weeds at bay while the sun and rain do the rest. Then comes the fun part. EATING!!!
