Memorial Day

On this Memorial Day we remember those Soldiers that died defending our wonderful country. I love America, we aren’t perfect but we are strong. This picture was taken in Holland Michigan at Centennial Park. Just the right amount of breeze.

Love a clean and sparkling pool and that is ours. Still getting it warmed up. Yesterday we got in and it was 76 degrees. That is not good enough, it was almost torture for me. I like 86 and it is almost there. I will be in it this afternoon. Our outside weather station alarm was going off recently because the temp. hit 100 outside.

We have ordered new furniture for around the pool. It is made of recycled plastics and manufactured in Canada. I loved this green rocker that they had in the store. It is called Kiwi. We have a side table ordered in green and another rocker rocker in white with a side table. Then a chaise lounge in turquoise. They are heavy and and tough so they can be left outside year round. The claim is that the color won’t fade and we loved it because of the weight, the rockers will not flip over in the wind and land on the pool cover.The name of the company is C.R. Plastic Products, and they are located in Stratford, Ontario.

Picked out some nice bright chair pads for the front porch. The bottom pad is reversible with stripes on the other side. They were bought from Pier One Imports.

Lastly we were in Detroit on Saturday at a Tigers game, I could see this building from my seat and it wasn’t this colorful last year. After doing some internet searching here is what I came up with to explain what it is all about. Being a person who loves color I was drawn to it immediately.

 

And she had a rainbow zebra

This last week I looked way out into the field behind us and saw two little animals moving around. With a better look I could see they were baby racoons foraging around for something to eat. My goodness they are so cute.

The baby geese are growing so fast too. I just get a kick out them staying in a bunch.

My sister Linda and I were selling her baked goods at the Auburn Farmers Market this week again. The city of Auburn had a really nice display observing Memorial Day.

Each time we come they have added more flowers to the courthouse square.

Not so many dogs this weekend attending the Farmers Market. This Labradoodle was greeting everyone she could get to. My sister had made dog and cat treats. This dog took one and wasn’t quite sure about it.

This little guy in his bright orange shirt was a joy to watch. He was busy all the time.

Here this black squirrel was getting bolder by the minute. He stopped halfway down the tree for a photo moment.

This is Miss Liberty and her colorful Zebra picture on her shirt caught my eye. She most kindly posed for my picture and had sample all of our cookies. The peanut butter ones got the thumbs up.

We were sitting under this tulip tree and I received the leaves and flower.

When driving home we came across this beautiful diplay of patriotism. We had to get out for some photos. This was just a piece of it. Thinking of our fallen soldiers….Happy memorial Day!
