Memorial Day Ramblin's.....

First of all I'd like to give a big THANK YOU to all of our service men and women...and to their families... who have given so much of themselves to protect and defend our country and freedom.  
God Bless You.
I think I read somewhere not too long ago that this is the year of the cicada.  Growing up, I'd always heard them called locusts. 
I wasn't really hearing them until today even though I'd already noticed them on the trees. 
It's like they appear out of nowhere!  You would think with so many you'd see them coming in in droves.
This is one of our back yard trees....Can you see them? It's covered with so many that it's creepy!  Not only is the tree covered but there are a good many on the ground beneathe.

It's a relaxing day here at the Hess Farm....well, in this little corner of the Hess Farm it is.  We'll throw some burgers on the grill afterwhile and toss a simple salad and call that supper.  I might even whip up a cake for dessert!

Hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend, spending time with family and friends or just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful weather!

Those cicadas are SO GROSS. I remember the last time they infested everything. Ugh! Disgusting! So far we don't have any up here. I hope we don't get them!
