Happy Memorial Day

Memorial Day is one of my favorite holidays. The obvious reasons are only augmented by the unofficial start of summer and that means a lot of outdoor time.

The time spent indoors ( more basketball and not complaining) was more than made up for by the great finds outside on bike rides and dog walking excursions.

The endangered Lady Slipper (which I may have picked once as a youngster):

The crowd favorite, baby snapping turtle:

The poisonous water moccasin (on my walk with Dixie and right on the child filled street):

The last reason I love Memorial Day is that it is now time to wear white!

Wear white and have a happy summer!

  1. Hope those beer-drinking cows I saw on the news didn’t disturb your festivities! Enjoy the white, you have until Labor Day! 🙂

  2. Yay! Golf Season! And look at you with that spiffy Ping putter! Do you like it? I have the Odyssey in that similar style and I like the feel of it on follow through.

  3. Hmm . . do you still follow that rule???? Who knew? I thought they did away with it! 🙂 Your first woven scarf is absolutely beautiful! You are so dang talented!!!! What an inspiration . . . . .

  4. Not sure it’s hard to tell because the picture is dark but I believe you have a banded water snake. It is commonly mistaken for a water moccasin. Again not 100% based on the photo and not being there in person. But typically you don’t see the whitish lines on a cottonmouth/moccasin.
