Here is our Rose for Memorial Day-in our front yard.

Good Morning.

Time is so precious-do not waste it, living for thyself alone. Live for others..

.Note: Both of our Cams # 1 and # 2 are looking at the Garden, two different views. Watch them grow. Link in the side panel. DAD.
.
The Cam to the Eagle Web Cam is also in service, I had several chances to look at them yesterday.
.
We did a lot of work on Saturday, got all the mulch spread and all the cages in place. Now we can sit back for a few weeks and dream about eating a big red ripe tomato.
.
If you have the time I hope that you will view my two Cams # 1 and 2. And look the tomato garden over from the two different views, and see if you can see the work that we have done. The link to these cams is in the side panel.

We are still enjoying warm weather, starting off this Monday morning at 3 A.M. the tempeature is 67 with a high of around 80 expected. It does mention showers in the afternoon. Sinc I have the tomato garden in good shape and all the weeds gone a good showere would not be bad. Anything that is good for the tomatoes pleases me.

Since this is Memorial Day I had planned to have a real short Entry. But when I get to talking about tomatoes it's hard for me too stop, but I am going to0 and talk about a hot cup of Tea or Starbucks coffee. It is all ready so stop in any time today. If you have time we will walk down to the garden. Dad.

Here is my thoughts for this Monday morning.
.
" A good memory is fine....but the ability to forget is the true test of greatness."
..
" You talk when you cease to be at peace with your thoughts."
..
" A minute of thought is worth more than an hour of talk."

This is all for today. I am going to try and be back in the morning. I have just a little to do outside today like feeding the birds and keeping that bird bath running to please those birds.
.
There is lots that I have missed here this morning, but please use my side pannel for what you do not find here. Smile and be content with your lot today, We all do have a lot to be thankful for if we will just take time to look around us. Love to all of you all around the globe.

BYE BYE DAD.
