HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY! Today we honor those men and women who gave their lives for our freedom. Every year when we lived in Wells, we were in the parade. First the boys were Cub Scouts, then Boy Scouts, then in the marching band. All of Nicks(our oldest son) high school years he played taps for the service. He played taps for about 40 military funerals also. The laying of the wreath, the gun salute and finally taps brings everyone to silence, reflection, thankfulness and many to tears. Thank you to all of those who have served and are serving in the Armed Forces.

We had such a late spring this year.....all the flowers are blooming a little late. Here's a few photos of my spring blooms....lovely violets...

Gorgeous bleeding hearts.........I was trying to take their picture and they kept dancing in the wind everytime I got situated.

Welcome to my blog!
This is so exciting! I have been thinking about starting one for quite awhile now and decided to make it happen. Didn't Sara @ Sadie Olive do a wonderful job creating it? I gave her the pics and she worked her magic. The pictures in my heading are of my garden. The angel on the left is my Mothers Day present this year, the middle picture is my Grandma Wellbergs birdbath in my garden with an angel watching over my garden. The last pic is my Morden Blush roses in my garden. The background is vintage wallpaper covering an old box that I bought a long time ago ~I just love it. Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you visit often.

This birds nest is something I made this year after spring cleaning my garden. I was cleaning out the thyme and I thought..........that would make a wonderful birds nest. I took the pic under our big evergreen tree.
