Poolside Dining



 First of all, many thanks for those of you who voted for my Birthday cards.  Unfortunately, I didn't win, but I did come in 5th.  I appreciate you taking the time and voting.

We have been working in  the yard a lot lately, getting things ready for summer.
The pool has shaped up nicely.  We planted some new flowers and added mulch.
I thought it would be fun to set a table down by the pool.
This table is small and intimate.  I will be setting a Tropical table under the Palapa soon.
Click on each photo to see them larger.








I hope each and everyone is enjoying the warmer weather.  It's alittle cooler this Memorial week-end.
Silly me, I forgot my flags, here's a few photos with our most precious flag.




Our deepest appreciation to all who have served and continue to serve. Have a great week-end and Be Safe!
Thanks for visiting.
