My treasured "toy." One owner 1985 Toronado Brougham, garaged in Florida and only 60K miles. It's my baby and we call it "Beauty," because it is.

I remember those. They were a very "handsome" car. Not Ferrari beautiful, just a handsome gentleman kind of car. Riding in one was kind of like riding in your living room sofa. Soft and smooth. Enjoy it!

I spent most of yesterday afternoon sitting on the porch picking cilantro from these overgrown plants from the garden and putting it in ice-cube trays to freeze. It was a lovely day under the ceiling fan with my dog and kitties.

You're picking stuff that's overgrown, yet here we are just in the process of planting. Nothing like cilantro will survive winter here... it won't even make it through summer without some care. We just had 3 inches of snow last week.

We did have a nice morning for the Memorial Day observances today:

Latitudes and attitudes I only planted them a couple months ago. They bolt quickly as soon as it gets hot and we've had temperatures in the 80s and 90s for the past couple of weeks.

My wife was potting flowers for the family grave sites for Memorial Day, and I took a couple of shots. Pretty petunias:

Spike was married to Sandy for 27 years. Second marriage for both of them.

For each birthday of any family that had passed, Sandy insisted that Spike go with her to put flowers on every grave of past family members. So then it comes time to place flowers on my youngest daughter, Maureen. The only problem was that she wanted to be cremated and her ashes were at the very top in the building for cremated individuals. The only spot left in that building. Since then a new building has been built for those who have been cremated.

"How in heck do you think anyone can put flowers there for her? Toss one at her spot at the top and hope she can catch it?" That sent a roar of laughter through all of us. If she had only waited to leave us, she could have gone in the new building and had the one flower placed for her. But we still laugh about her catching her flower. Spike leaves a flower for her on the shelf anyway.

We finally found the right spot for gardenia's, my favorite flower. Wish you could smell them.

Those flowers look great. My favorite are dahlias followed by hostas. Here's a picture of one of my dahlias from last year called "Dixie Winedot".
