Reflection on past Memorial Day weekends..

My Peony flowers are in full bloom just in time for Memorial Day weekend.  When I was growing up Memorial Day weekend was a prescribed ritual of gathering Peonies from my Grandfathers yard and heading to the cemetery to decorate the grave sites of relatives.

And here is a photo of Day 1 of my garden this year.  I planted:

12 tomato plants (5 varieties), green beans, snap peas, zucchini, cucumbers,  peppers,  rosemary, cilantro, basil. I’ve still got some room left in the garden..but will leave it for the cucumbers to take over.
