The Pinks and Reds of Memorial Day

Our Memorial Day celebrations were caught in bits and pieces.
In between naps and fret-filled calls to the pediatrician, house and garden projects and tired parents trying to catch a break here and there.

Living in Sugar Hollow doesn't leave us with much of an urge for going. Staying put more often than not is what makes us happiest.

From the top:
Rhubarb soda. Recipe here. And if you are lucky enough to have liquor in the house, you can make the Rhubarb Cosmopolitan.

Strawberries from Chiles Orchard in Crozet. They make and sell strawberry donuts, too. Just sayin'.

Peonies from a neighbor's garden.

And Sweet William from our cutting flower patch. Patch is a stretch. But garden would be even more of a stretch.
