We have no known family that lost their lives on battlefields or seas, and while in the past we have visited cemeteries, this weekend we mostly stayed home. We did go to the stadium Saturday evening for a Sounders soccer match. Yay! We won this one.
On Sunday we planted flowers - glass flowers. We finally got them out in the garden, with Tom doing most of the work and putting up with me as I fussed over/ contemplated their placement.
These are all creations that I designed out of thrift store glass, and Tom glued together.
Today, Memorial Day, we did our usual Monday chores: laundry and house cleaning.
It was chilly but the sun came out in the afternoon, allowing me to enjoy a walk around the garden, taking photos of my new "blooms".
Now it is unofficially summer, although calendar wise we have to wait until June 21st.
I am happy to wait. Spring is so beautiful.
