Guess the flowers will have to be artificial this year
Season is so late, won't have any peonies for at least 2 weeks, maybe more. Buds aren't as big as marbles. Only iris blooming are the smaller striped foliage blue flowered ones that smell like grapes but don't have many of that kind. Lilacs are trying to bloom but it is so cold that they are late, The only thing we have in full bloom is dames rocket and that just runs undisturbed in huge bunches near the hazel nuts across from the raspberry patch. Don't really consider dames rocket a suitable bloom to carry to the cemetery.
So when Leone gets home we will have to fall back on artificial flowers kept in reserve since this sure isn't the first year that cold has held back the flowers.
The pool opens tomorrow, not sure why. Little hard to swim wearing an overcoat or long underwear.
Just a typical Memorial day weekend in western NE. When you were small was it called Memorial day or Decoration day?
