Stella D'oro, Pink Tiger Lily Buds, and Blueberries

This is a little ridiculous, Maggie.

Your garden runneth over.

Lush doesn't begin to cover it.

I hope you feel blessed to be surrounded by all this beauty.

Because you are.

It is beautiful! The wisteria is starting to bloom again and so is the knockout rose. The lillies are on their last leg, but they sure were pretty!

It's so dry here that I am watering every day. Things don't look so great!

The hydrangeas are amazing this year. One of them only had about four blooms on it last year, but this year it is covered!

Already over 80 at 10:40. I am going to take Molly for a quick run at the cemetery before it gets up to 97, which is the predicted high today. That's nuts for May!

Then, I shall go in search of a funeral spray and make my drive to the Veteran's Cemetery to put some flowers on Dad's stone. I haven't been in a year.

I called and asked my mom if she wanted to go. She said she really doesn't feel Dad there--she feels him all around the house. But she said, Tell him I said hey there and be sure to let him know I'm thinking about him. Classic.

I really feel the same way. He's not there. And, it's strange to look at his name, rank, DOB and date of death, etc. and to know my father is beneath the ground. I almost feel like I'm suffocating at times. Other times, I don't feel much of anything standing there.

C'est la vie.

Hope you have a good Memorial Day, Laurel!
