Memorial Day eve

It's been a good weekend and the school is closed tomorrow. A friend asked if I'd speak tomorrow at one of the local Memorial Day observances. I worked up the outline of what I'll say and hopefully I can get through it without too many Ummm and ahh ahhs.

Spring has definitely cleared out. Today it was in the low 90s with a humidity thick enough to spread on toast. We walked early this morning and finally got our steps in when evening shadows grew longer.

I mixed up some compost juice and fed the tomatoes and peppers and this evening as I leaned on the back fence to survey my handiwork, it looked as if the plants had grown a few inches. The concoction smells worse than a boiled egg poot, but the plants love it.

As I headed inside, I saw a lantana blossom peeping from beneath the back deck so I snapped a quick picture.

I hope you all have a remarkable Memorial Day.

  9. We're in the mid 80's here and humid too, but I know it's nothing compared to what you have. I stay in where it's cool. I give you credit for doing those steps anyway. It's looking like a beautiful day here. Hope you have a good one !

  12. I'm on call today and missed the annual parade. A good friend and Vietnam Vet was speaking at our observance this morning and I missed that too but I've had the pleasure of hearing him before and I'm sure he did great. I'm also sure you did too! What an honor to speak for all those who can't on this day set aside for them. We planted our small garden today and the weather here has been warm and humid too. Have a good Tuesday!
