Hi Terry! I haven't heard from you so I am hoping now that you are doing okay. My mom is in the hospital and things are just crazy for me but I wanted to stop by for a moment and say hi while I was home. Take care and talk more later!
I can't tell you how happy this makes me to read, 'cause I know how happy you are playing in the dirt! Remember that rosemary plant you gave me? Well, I've been loving "harvesting" from my deck so much that it inspired me. Today we went to the Oregon City Farmer's Market and bought cilantro plants to keep your rosemary company. Playing in the dirt on a sunny day - it doesn't get much better than this!Joan
Yes Joan, today was the first time in a long time that I just enjoyed life's pleasures. I dug in the dirt, planted flowers, clipped and pruned, drank lemonade in the sun, sat quietly while a Monarch butterfly came within inches of us on my new planted flowers, watched a sweet mama Barn Swallow take care of her baby brood in her new abode out front, watched my 6 year old grandson splash around in the pool, climb a tree giggling all the way up back down again. Watched my husband (his Papa) ride a bike with him while they both giggled some more...now they are off to build a "bomb fire" (bon fire) at the burn pile...I can tell you without a doubt, if life was like this everyday there would be no more worries in the world...
What a happy day you have had. I'm so glad! Let's talk soon. Love you, sister-friend! Lori
Well, Terry that's what I was going to say, no fair. But I want to add no humidity, no mosquitoes. Papa Arnold and I are transplanted from the midwest so we keep telling people there that Oregon has the perfect weather, no humidity and no mosquitoes. Yes we get some rain but that is what keeps us so green. At the least in the valley where we live, on the other side of the mountains it's like a desert because they don't get the rain we do. So take your pick, no rain, no grenery, or rain and beautiful green everywhere. Love it, MIL
Hi, I read your comment on my blog today, about panic and your garden and wanting it to be spectacular for July. I would email you but don't see your email address, so am commenting here. I suggest that you visit a local plant center and ask them for ideas; I am sure Portland's climate allows for beautiful gardens. Have fun with this :) I hope this is helpful.
