Miscellaneous musings and fun memories of my Memorial Day weekend.

The banner and lights above my sister's buffet table.

 The festive centerpieces that lined her food table.  I thought the spinning wheels
added a perfect touch.

My Aunt making final preparations on her famous salad.  We all look forward to this
specialty of hers, including the homemade strawberry dressing.

Natural, healthy goodness.

My Mother's fresh fruit dish.  Another always looked forward to dish.

The fresh, hot house tomato platter that is one of my sister's specialties, along with the
sweet mayonnaise dressing.  If you have been visiting my blog for any time, you know
how much I enjoy photographing food.  There is something so beautiful about the
colors and texture of fresh food.  I feel so blessed to have access to it all, and for the
five senses that I have been given.  Things I so often take for granted in the busyness
of life.

The first bouquet of Iris from my front flower garden.  I look forward to them blooming
every Spring, and like how they look in the old canning jar.

 We came upon this farmer and his mules getting ready to work the fields.  With six
mules and three wagons, he had to pull off the road to let us through.  A somewhat
common sight in this county, and yet it still causes me to pull out my camera.

A bouquet of my red mini roses, just for you on this Tuesday.
Thank you for stopping by.

That food has my attention! It all looks so scrumptious. Have you ever posted the recipe for your aunt's salad?? I'd love to have it. :)

Just a little something from Judy said...

I will ask her for the recipe for you. Thanks for your kind comment.
