Hello.. come on in for a visit. Make yourself comfortable. :-) Remember the purple bunny I made for my granddaughter Jenna when I visited them in Ohio? Well, I left with a promise to Paige that I would make her a lamb. I've spared you photos of the process of making this. :-) You're welcome. But here is Baby Lamb! The instructions were in a crochet magazine that my daughter bought at Hobby Lobby in Ohio. I used pure cotton made by Blue Sky Alpacas - from Yarn.com (PS - I could not find any pink ribbon!!!)
I snapped a photo of my white Azalea on Wednesday - I'm afraid to look at it today as it poured buckets of rain all afternoon and evening here yesterday and I think these might be beaten and brown now.
Very pretty white flowers.
Another Iris in bloom.. I think I got a bag of mixed bulbs as I never would have selected this beige variety.
I volunteered at Multnomah Falls yesterday with my sister Denise. It was a rainy day and people kept coming into the visitors center wearing plastic rain parkas.. the gift shop must have made a fortune on them. :-) On the way home I pulled off the road at my favorite Camas patch. I nearly missed this blooming season of them! But here they are. The Camas was a very important food source for local Indians. They are harvested in Autumn and the bulbs are pit-roasted or boiled. They are also dried and ground into flour. It tastes something like a sweet potato only sweeter. See the river behind the flowers? The bluff you see across the river is Washington State.
The photos I got of the Camas are very wet and drippy. :-)
But I love the color of the petals and the yellow center.
Also growing to the right of the Camas are Lupine.
Don't you love the proud tall spikes of this wildflower?
These will be blooming for a time yet, they bloom from bottom up the stem to the top.
My little river shot I get most of the times that I volunteer.
Remember the Westward Ho glass pieces in the museum I showed you on Mt. Hood? Look what I found on Etsy for a very reasonable price! A Westward Ho compote. Isn't it neat? All around the etched glass base are embossed Western images such as a log cabin, campfire, a deer and a buffalo.
This is a close up of the Indian on the top - he's kneeling and has a buffalo robe over his shoulder.
This wonderful glass terrarium arrived yesterday as a Mother's Day gift from my dear darling daughter Amy! Thank you, honey!
I'm off to swim soon. No plans for the weekend.. yay! We'll see what happens. Do you have any fun plans? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
