Vintage American Red Cross poster, circa 1917, image courtesy of US National Library
This poster dates from WWI.

In light of the events of the last week, I thought this one somehow seemed appropriate.  The American Red Cross is a great organization that responds to disasters, both natural and man made.  I love the image on this poster, it's so pretty, and the words are just as true now as they were then.

It's been a good weekend at the farm, tree plantings, mouse hunting, fence building, mowing, and general things to do.  I will have an update later.

Don't forget to enter the APRIL GIVEAWAY that started yesterday.
