" It is the month of June, the month of leaves and roses, when pleasant sights salute the eyes and pleasant scents the noses."
       ~Nathaniel Parker Willis~

" It's beautiful the summer month of June when all of God's own wildflowers are in bloom and sun shines brightly most part of the day and butterflies o'er lush green meadows play.

Light hearted skylark songster of the wing high o'er the quiet and lonely moorland sing above her nest cloaked by the tangled heath her charming song so exquisitely sweet.

So mellow the gentle breath of June day breeze the birds rejoicing on the leafy trees and doppled trout in pool bed of the stream bask in the sun their spotted skins agleam."

I have my home inside and outside decorated with flags and other items that are patriotic.  They will stay up until after the 4th of July.  Some of the items my husband and I made when we were in the craft business, others I got at yard sales or from the Dollar Tree store or other stores when I found them on sale.  Enjoy this Armed Forces Day and the following photos.

Some of you have already seen these photos but some of my new followers have not.

"The month of may was come, when every lusty heart beginneth to blossom, and to bring forth fruit."

For my inside decorations I have ceramic eggs and bunnies.

I also use Dollar Tree spring arrangements.
