Fourth of July!!

I love the Fourth of July!  I love summer and the Fourth of July is the perfect summer holiday.

Last week I made a patriotic banner and hung it on my porch for the weekend.   Our Fourth of July picnic this year will just be for two.  Since the holiday falls in the middle of the week, Mr. Kay declined an invitation to go to a picnic and some amazing fireworks because of the traffic and the time it takes to get home following the fire works.  He has to work on Friday, I took the day off.  Since we don't have any big plans I'll be working on my "to do" list and will try to make it a productive day.

I am planning to make some grilled shrimp and baked potatoes for dinner, we will eat it outside and I'll pretend its a fun picnic!   I've got Fourth of July flowers growing in my garden this time of year and enjoy using Monarda, Larkspur, Feverfew and Baby's Breath  for the perfect holiday floral arrangement.

Enjoy your day!   Have a safe and happy one!
