A Memorable Weekend ~

~ Wishing you all a most enjoyable Memorial Day Weekend ~
hoping you get to spend some time relaxing...
and remembering those 
who have proudly served 
or are serving 
our country. 

We will enjoy a picnic supper today,
our menu will be:

~ beef kabobs on the grill
~ seven layer salad
~ homemade strawberry/blueberry shortcakes

~::~ ~::~ ~::~ ~::~ ~::~ ~::~ 

Charlie will come for his usual Sunday visit,
 and Peter & I will 
work a little in the garden ~
...then I will settle in to my chair on the porch 
& do some serious stitching on a new needle-roll design…
(: in between playing with kittens & new baby chicks :)

the shop here at the farm will be 
 MAY 30th to JULY 11th
for some much-needed down-time.

...the ETSY SHOP will remain 
for your mail orders.

here are a few snaps of around the farm for you ~

Saint Francis ~
watching over us all
...here at Notforgotten Farm

"...These heroes are dead.  They died for liberty - they died for us.  They are at rest.  They sleep in the land they made free, under the flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks, the tearful willows, and the embracing vines.  They sleep beneath the shadows of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or of storm, each in the windowless Place of Rest.  Earth may run red with other wars - they are at peace.  In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death.  I have one sentiment for soldiers living and dead:  cheers for the living; tears for the dead. …"

~Robert G. Ingersoll

* Blessed be *

Beautiful post, Lori. I have St. Francis in my garden, too. It seemed fitting, since I live on Francis Lane!

Thank you.
We all need to remember our veterans alive and gone.
They are there for us.
Love your garden....Spring is a time of rebirth and hope.
