For those of us in the United States, Memorial Day Weekend means a lot of things.
One thing it means is three day weekend for those of of us with traditional jobs.
Anyone with a bunny will enjoy a bit more special bunny time.
And, for those of us in Erie, PA, Memorial Day weekend is the time when we can finally get some stuff planted in the ground. Danger of frost is no longer imminent, it's usually a little warmer (actually, it normally rains on Memorial Day Weekend here, but not this weekend!), and the garden centers and nurseries are hopping with people who are excited to get outside after a long, cold winter.
First on our weekend agenda was a trip to Johnston's Nursery, where we helped Neighbor Bill choose a couple of sour cherry trees for his yard. We also got 8 (eight!) 6-ft Arbor Vitae, which I spent most of Sunday digging holes for and planting. WHEW!!
Miss Zoe did not help with this project.
She claims to be too small to help with such things.
Here's some highlights from our trip to Johnston's, starring the Blisschick:
The other thing we've done so far this weekend is go to the Erie's first ever Troika Russian Festival. (You can see some lovely still photos of the event and the Church on Blisschick today.)
We shared a wonderful Russian porter beer, we took a tour of the gorgeous Church...:
...and then we listened to some great music and watched some awesome dancing by Barynya (a live from New York City performance group):
So what are you doing this weekend?
