Sorry no Monday Photo just realized it was Monday …these three day weekends it was Memorial Day in my part of the world. So it threw me with the week starting already …it was a quiet one this yr no barbeque with the rain that we had off and on but was able to get to the cemetery to put flowers at my parents stone and to enjoy the long weekend with my husband and daughter and a little bit with my son….. but that part is for another time.. My husband cleared out our basement from all its clutter and we have started getting our summer things out next weekend we will fix our fire pit which had a rough winter ..so we can enjoy some bonfires and tasty smores under the stars..Oh and some wine. Well getting late going to go settle have a goodnight everyone.
I was reminded this afternoon with my daughter that it was May Day when we took a ride into town this morning and saw the local Elementary kids with their teachers pushing a wagon filled with May Day baskets. May Day basket you ask well that was a basket or a cup designed with fresh beautiful spring flowers and notes or pictures…a celebration of Spring. in other cultures theirs music bright color pole with ribbons that you dance around. .. a may pole , you ate cake. What I remember was making the baskets and going to neighborhood houses and giving a basket to an older or shut in person and then random houses. I did it as a child as well as my kids I always thought it was a fun time my kids thought so too. It was nice to see the smiles on peoples faces when they found them at their doors.
Today for photo Monday . It’s my beautiful Rose from our flower garden last summer.and I thought it would be perfect for the first day of Spring . Love roses their one of my favorite flowers always beautiful bright and refreshing when they bloom.. enjoy everyone.
