Hi Deb,
Thank you!
My husband worked today so I was home alone with the potato salad!
Hot and humid until around 4pm when a nice thundershower blew in.
The temps drop twenty degrees in half an hour.
I like the idea of a wet July!

Hi Mary C.
The white flower is Queen Ann's Lace and the blue is a verbena (SP?)in a hanging planter I have out in the Red Bud tree.
I have flags and such but thought a simple post today would be best.
Stay safe!
Happy 4th.

Dear French Nest,
Thank you!
Simple sometimes works out the best!

Happy Fourth of July Sherry.
I love all your pictures, but the Queen Anne's Lace is my favourite..!

Mary said...

Happy 4th, Sherry! Your post is very creative. I'm not surprised.

Dear Sheila,
Thank you!
The Queen Ann's Lace is my favorite wild flower. I have a few stands of it.
Years ago, when the children were small, we would walk to the woods and cut some for our July 4th table.
I did the different colored waters and the blooms would turn red and blue. It was pretty and the kids and I had fun.
I keep hoping a butterfly will find the Queen Ann's and I will get a photo! I think a Black Swallowtail would look so pretty perched up!

Happy 4th Mary,
Thank you.
I did a post last year on Lady Liberty. I had done some reasearch on fireworks last year too.
This year I am being simple.
I wanted a relaxed day. I read and enjoyed a phone call with my daughter.
Hope you also enjoyed your day.
