Moon over Oregon Ridge Park

A quiet moment — the moonrise last weekend over a lovely wild park in Maryland. They were doing maple tapping last weekend, a sure sign that spring is coming.

Sunset getting near solstice

This photo was taken about 3 days before Solstice, and it sums up the hopefulness behind the clouds of many rainy days.
I hope you had a great time with great food.
I listened to good music, drank mead (from Michigan, of all places, called B.Nektar, which sounds even more dubious) and ate the asparagus, chilled shrimp, sweet potato, and mango with mint leaves that the Gardener prepared.
A lovely day, marred by the fact that tomorrow is not Saturday, alas.

Lets go down to the sunset bridge

And watch the working barge go by

And watch the mosquitoes bite people,

And stare up at the maroon sky….

In memoriam

P1000159Happy Memorial Day. Say thanks to a Vet, find a ceremony to attend if you can, or spend 15 minutes thinking of those who went through unbelievable hardships and died to keep the USA free and honest.
