Happy birthday America!

The stripes represent the original 13 Colonies and the stars represent the 50 states of the Union. The colors of the flag are symbolic as well; red symbolizes hardiness and valor, white symbolizes purity and innocence, and blue represents vigilance, perseverance and justice.

I know what my birthday wish for America’s future is – what’s yours?

Spring has sprung

For days I had been driving and seeing all these beautiful wildflowers on my commute and wondering where I could pull over to capture some of these beauties and bring some home. But there was no safe spot to pull over.  I thought surely we must have some of these on our property but no – none that I could see.

But Saturday evening returned home from our anniversary dinner to find these beauties on our dining room table from our daughter who gathered them all in our neighborhood:-). Mind you she knew nothing of me wanting to gather some for home.

Thank you my dear – I love you!😘😘
