Our Grand Old Flag.
With Flag Day being June 14th,
I wanted to share some flags around the house.
My flag pillow made of strips of fabric on muslin.
Me thinks it looks good with some of my red quilts.
This flag in the lavender.
The eagle shade lamp is a great patriotic one too!
Flag banner underneath the fireplace mantle.
I will change this up for July 4th a bit.
Stay tuned on this one.
Although this pic is a bit dark. It is a paper bag
with white hydrangeas and two flags on each side.
Another flag pillow I made.
Finally at the front door is
this proud flag with tiny blue
In other news,
the fish flies and mayflies have arrived in town.
Fish flies look similar to moths.
Mayflies look like gray butterflies
with somewhat of a caterpillar body.
They come out of the lakes and river to mate,
lay eggs and die.
They are a bit of a nuisance though
as they come out in packs.
The mayflies go towards the light,
and because of this they end up in the road
and cars start to run over them.
So much that the roads can become slick.
Like driving on ice.
The fish flies swarm like gnats.
Also a headache if you are near them.
Even though they are a big nuisance,
having them in swarms means the river and lake
is clean...so we will welcome them...
maybe not with open arms, but they only stay
for a few weeks...
so we will tolerate them as we want clean water.
Today my mom arrives and I will
be taking her to her annual eye appt. tomorrow.
She has this degenerative eye disease,
and may need an eye transplant.
They like to check it yearly...
and so far so good....knock on wood.
Well my friends, its off to work I go.
Have a great Wednesday!
Pre Flag Day Blessings To All!
