It’s a quiet and balmy weekend here in northern Virginia, and it feels like summer is settling in. As promised in an earlier post, here are a few photos of our garden.
Once the rain moved out, our peonies burst into bloom and our veggie plants took off. It is a work in progress, but it’s looking good so far. My husband is a gifted gardener, so I cannot take credit for anything that is green and growing.
Today, along with BBQ ribs, we enjoyed a salad that included fresh-picked Romaine lettuce and radishes from our garden. My mom and brother came for a visit and we watched some old home movies together. Life is good. Family time is so precious. And I am reminded that freedom is never free.
What a blessing and a privilege it is, sharing this Memorial Day with family and friends. I will never take for granted the freedoms I enjoy and the sacrifices that were made by so many brave men and women in uniform.
Enjoy your holiday, and may God continue to bless and protect our troops. 🇺🇸
