as always...AWESOME :)
Thanks so much EMB
Hubby and I were just speaking of trying to get in and see the Blue Angels this year. I’d be thrilled to say the least. Would love to go to Fleet Week too, someday.
I wish you a wonderful weekend
God Bless Our Heroes!

Hi Aqua
Thanks! How are you feeling? I was outside earlier. Pollen is caked up on everything. Now I know why I was not feeling my best this week. I have a lot of washing to do outside tomorrow ;)

I just brought a Memorial Rose to plant :)

I wish you a wonderful weekend!

Am starting to feel better, thanks. You reminded me I need to wash our back porch down which is coated with pollen and mildew. Will need to use clorox on the mildew and dread that since it's so hard on my sinuses.

Do you have a picture of the Memorial Rose?

You don’t wanna miss it. Everything was in early growth when it’s lime green, as time goes on the green gets darker. It’s a very special time in that area when the earth comes back to life. Be sure to go in May.

Here's a photo. The pictures don't do it justice. It's neat how the buds are such a dark color to what the rose opens to. The contrast of buds with flowers is very nice. It's really hardy too. I had it in my last yard and just loved it.

Sometimes when the pollen is this bad, I get bronchitis. Maybe we should wear a mask when cleaning it. Do you think that could really help. I don't look forward to cleaning it up either.

We did enjoy it although we had Miss Priss (Daisy) with us and she was being a little bossy.

She just came in here to listen to the Aaron Tippin eagle song, think she remembers when I used to play it. lol

Bless her heart. I hope she enjoys it...I sure have.

Glad you had fun. I guess having another “boss” along wasn’t TOO bad! LOL!
