|Attempting to rescue the baby robin|
I was up early each morning to make special breakfasts. Gingerbread Pancakes, English Breakfast Pie, Sweet Potato-Pecan Waffles, homemade English Muffin Bread and homemade breakfast sandwiches to go with chocolate chip cookies.
I haven't been feeding the birds regularly as the Grackles hog the feeder. Yet a variety continue to return. Goldfinch, Redpoles, Blue Jays, Cardinals, and the Bluebirds. I try to capture them through the kitchen window as often as possible. But when I run for the camera and return to the window they have left. Now I try to keep the camera on the kitchen window sill.
The family paused often to remember fallen veterans this Memorial Day weekend. Grandfathers and Uncles who fought in WWII and our sons fallen comrades in recent conflicts.
And the garden got planted. Roma tomatoes, red bell peppers, some cucumbers, summer squash, and marigolds to keep the bugs and critters out. Our first crop of rhubarb is almost ready to pick. It's a small garden, but if you remember I planted way too much last year and the cherry tomato plants grew into MONSTER plants. That was due to the good mushroom compost and chicken dung that I used.
Wishing you wonderful memories to last a lifetime!
