In Boring, Oregon, USA, we have been marching closer to Spring with rain showers down in the valley and a bit more snow on Mt. Hood. I stopped by Jonsrud viewpoint in Sandy one misty day when Mt. Hood was barely visible to the east of the Sandy River to take a photo to show you.
Mr. and Mrs. Mallard let me get a photo of them perched on their favorite downed tree in the front pond, but I did not see the Wood Ducks visiting them that day.
Our one Camellia bud is opened a bit more, our Daffodils are still dancing around our tree, and our Forsythia bush is a fountain of gold blossoms.
My youngest SIL cut several branches of the bush for me so that I could wind them into one of my vine wreaths in exchange for the dried prickly Holly I had put on it just before Christmas.
We planted a few more plants on Saturday: two Carnations, some Crawling Mint, a small Lilac bush, two Dianthus and two other new to me plants with long names I can't remember at the moment, but hope they are hardy enough to survive our gardening.
I found a little Shamrock plant at the grocery store and am hoping I can help it thrive indoors year round.
Two year old Rose came to me requesting me to put her hair in pony tails, the other day, and I thought you might enjoy seeing the result :)
Baby Ian, my newest friend in CA was born several months ago, and I wanted to make something for him to celebrate his birth, and found the pattern for a crocheted baseball cap HERE.
Wishing you happy marching into whatever season you are in!
