Memorial Day Weekend

For the first time in at least seven years we decided to not go away for Memorial Day weekend. No wine tasting in Oregon or the Tri Cities. No camping in warmth of Eastern Washington. No weekend in Winthrop in the beautiful Cascade mountain range. Just home to relax, rest and do whatever we decide to do or not do. It's pretty much not like us really.

But how could you not enjoy just being home. When this.....

has finally turned to this....

and this

 is finally in bloom with this...

Yes. it's finally nice to just sit enjoy the time and labor we put into making our plot in North Tacoma our home. (on today's to do list is to pull those pesky ferns from the rock wall they just keep coming back.)

I love our over 40 year old lilac trees

 that allow me to go outside into the back yard and bring some springtime inside our home.

I love the smell of lilac; sweet, fresh and wonderful.
I hope this Memorial Day weekend finds you doing whatever it is that relaxes and rejuvenates your soul.


  1. I'm jealous of your garden! All those nice blooms and greens... if I show you my backyard you would cry!

  2. But you have sunshine. There is a tradeoff but yes it's beautiful in a different way.

  3. LOL, Sunshine that kills everything in lays its rays on! But, ok maybe there is trade off, I think you won on that...


We'd love to hear about your favorite meals, restaurants, or wines, as well as anything else you'd like to share.....
