Memorial Day Weekend 2011

This is the big Memorial Day weekend that many of us were so eagerly anticipating, especially if you lived in an area that was pelted with snow. Today I was able to wear slippers. Wow! The seasonal changes are very good.

It is so beautiful to see the beautiful shades of green leaves on the trees. The flowers are brilliant and beautiful. I have included three in this blog. These were taken with my cell phone camera. I was particularly pleased with the blue roses. Wow!

Memorial Day is the unofficial start of the summer and by now your body should be beach ready and all you need is the accessories. The water might still be too cold in New York, so test the waters before you jump in.

back to Memorial Day weekend in New York City. It is really exciting especially with the return of Fleet Week, pier 86 is the place to be. This Memorial Day let us really reflect on those who laid down their lives in love for our freedom.
