Memorial Day weekend

The list was deceptively short for the things I wanted to accomplish this weekend, but a good number of them have been done. My two main concerns were working spaces outside and getting the garden planted. Actually I’d hoped to get the plants in before this weekend, but for one reason or another it didn’t work out that way. I can only assume that there is a reason I know nothing about.

This should be lovely on breezy, but not windy days. Of course, it’s always windy up here, but some days are worse than others and yesterday tested the umbrella stands to the utmost. Still, this will probably be the primary spot for the summer as my loom fits nicely near the table, but not in the travel path.



Sat morning 002


This is where I sat yesterday when I finally got cleaned up and pulled out my knitting. It’s certainly a bonus that our neighbor has a beautifully landscaped yard and doesn’t mind sharing her view. The lush green plants to the right are horseradish plants and they share a bed with milkweed and raspberry canes. There is a row of marigolds in front of the stone wall just waiting to be harvested for dyeing. This year I will do it all summer long and dry the heads as I remove them. Then I will have plenty come fall dyeing time.


Sat morning 001








And this is for late afternoon and evenings…or chilly mornings. It’s on the east side of the house and is screened from the road by a monster morning glory on the arbor. A nice, quiet place to settle for some peace and quiet after work and before dinner. Now I have my choice of places to sit tomorrow and remember some of the people who have passed from my physical life, but are still with me in so many ways. I hope that your Memorial Day will bring some happiness, peace, and good memories home to you.
