Hi everyone, today is Memorial Day, a day to reflect and remember those brave soldiers who gave
their lives for our freedom, and also to remember the veterans . My Dad passed away 4 years ago at the age of 84 just 2 days before Memorial Day as we celebrate it now. He was in the Army, was in the Battle Of The Bulge, and earned a Purple Heart. He was so proud to be an American and proud of his service although he hardly talked about it. Thank you God for our service men and women!

I was sitting on my porch swing on the side deck this morning and I saw so many different and pretty birds! Scarlet Tanagers - the most vivid red - almost fluorescent! Gold Finches - again the most vivid lemon yellow. Also Bluebirds and Robins. Fun to see them flitting all about- male, female and babies. I decided I'm going to put up a couple of bird feeders. We already have a Hummingbird feeder that I've thoroughly enjoyed watching the tiny hummers.
As I'm writing this, I'm sitting next to an open window and can hear them singing away!
I have 2 more wholesale orders to get out and then will work on new girls and art for the wholesale show June 2 - 4. I'll give a sneak peak in about week or so.
