Flags and a Bumper Crop

"It's A Grand Old Flag"

Days 2-3 fell into Memorial Weekend. It was so awesome seeing flags flying everywhere.

As we were driving through Massachusetts, we just happened on a small town's celebration---a real Norman Rockwell moment for me. We hopped out of the car right there on the street to join them. The high school band played the national anthem while proud local servicemen of days gone by assisted with the flags. 

"And Forever in Peace May You Wave."


Anyone want to trade some squash for anything else? I'm feeling a bumper crop coming on!


  1. Enjoyed this post. I love squash.

  2. Love it...right out of a movie! And I would love some squash, we won't get ours til Fall!

  3. Love those Rockwell moments...not enough of them in most places....

  4. Diana, I love all of your pictures. I love seeing our country's flag, too. Jeff put up 2 new ones to make 3 American flags flying together at the bank right now, and it looks really good. When he gets the new Oklahoma flag in, he'll probably have to put it and the bank flag back up.
    I wish I had something to trade you. I love squash!
    Thank you for your comments to me!

  5. beautiful flag photos...your squash looks great...

  6. Wow! Great photos! I love this post! We love watching parades but didn't get to see this year's. Beautiful squash! I don't have a garden this year, but our little ole' Country market gas station sells somebody's fruit and veges. I happily bought my homegrown veges and had a YUMMY salad! Life in the country..is just awesome!

  7. Nothing like New England for flags and veg!

  8. Love your blogs! Thanks for stopping by mine!

  9. Those photos with the flags fill my heart! Thank you!

  10. Great pictures! I don't have a garden, but I'd gladly trade you bread for tomatoes!

  11. There's something incredibly charming about "small town, USA"! Perhaps it's because it takes us back to better days, simpler times.

    Thanks for the mini-retreat!


  12. Hi Diana, Sounds and looks like a great trip, I would love to have had the opportunity to get out and enjoy a celebration like this.
    I will have to pass on the squash, as we are having a bumper crop too.lol.
    Thanks for sharing.

  13. Sounds like a wonderful trip! We went to Philadelphia many years ago and it was thrilling to be where so much of the history of our nation took place. I'm sure you felt much the same way in Boston.Great pictures!

  14. Looks like a great trip! Awesome photos. My squash isn't doing well for me, but our zuchinni is taking over and are HUGE! Guess we could trade out. LOL...

  15. Aww...makes me miss the charm of New England! I love looking at your trip pictures. It's almost like being there.

    Summer squash is my favorite and we didn't plant any this year. Looks like you'll be eating squash for awhile! :0)

  16. There's nothing like seeing the red, white and blue all over! Love to see such patriotism!

    If we lived closer, I would trade you veggies for veggies, for sure! =)
