Memorial Day ... the kickoff to Summer!


Well even though it's still pretty cool, Memorial Day is the official start to enjoying Summer in Minnesota. Labor Day ... the official end! It's great having the windows open through the night ... love hearing the birds get going each day. Lately, in addition to the loons calling in the lake behind us, we've got turkeys gobbling in the woods. Keep in mind that this is suburbia ... we live in White Bear Lake, not Hugo! We haven't seen any hummingbirds yet but maybe when the temps get a bit up there they'll return. Through my bedroom window I can see the bleeding hearts blooming ... these were taken from my mom's garden so it's kind of fun having that connection to her. Soon, the wild blue irises that my sister Sue gave me will be blooming. Even though Summer is coming slowly this year, it's still fun to be able to enjoy each step. Happy Memorial Day!!

Happy Memorial Day to you. I saw the flags going up in the cemetary yesterday. I always like to see them blowing in the wind...and today we've got wind! Let summer begin...I don't think it's even 50 degrees today...not with the wind chill factor anyway.
