Hello! I'm a happy Daffodil! I am blooming in the middle of February, in Oregon.. in the NORTHWEST.. aren't I just the prettiest thing ever? Of course I am! :-)
We had another warm and beautiful day yesterday - I had a meeting at 1 pm at my friend Sally's house in Bridal Veil, Oregon - in between Vista House and Multnomah Falls. Yes, I do live in a fairyland, really. When I arrived home my daffodils had begun to open. It was so pleasant yesterday that I only had to wear my Spring shawl, no coat.
These two daffies were the first to open, day before yesterday.
A half open flower..
My 10th and last (for now) baby hat for Taci's Hats for Babies in Brazil project. It may be my favorite! If you have some to send and need her address, email me and I'll send it on to Taci to answer you.
Here are my ten together. :-) It was a fun project as each is so different.
One of our other hens has begun to lay, Dayle brought in two speckled light brown eggs. I laid them on my knitted wash cloth I was working on. It's done now. I'm crocheting on a new blanket which I will show you in the next post.
On my way home from Sally's house I snapped this image of Latourell Falls - it's so different in winter, less green for sure. I love the neon lime green of the lichen by the falls.
Then I wound my way up along the Historic Columbia River Highway to Vista House. There was a big brown UPS truck smack in the front of it, but I was patient and enjoyed the view until he pulled away. :-) The land you see behind it is Washington State!
The river winds 733 feet below.
See Beacon Rock in the distance? Bonneville Dam is to the right of it. The little rock island in the river is called Phoca Rock. It was named by Lewis & Clark as they went past and Pho Ca is the name for seals.
Then I drove on and pulled into Portland Women's Forum State Scenic Viewpoint. What a view!
Vista House, Beacon Rock and Bonneville Dam.
I'm off soon to meet my twin siblings, Robert and Roberta, for a lunch meeting to work on plans for our family reunions in Oklahoma this summer. Then to the pool for my 1 hour swim workout. Busy busy. How is your week going? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
