Our two big hanging planters are doing well and growing fast. I love these orange "Million Bells".
We were visited by a pair of Doves over the weekend. This dove is actually a Ring necked Dove and also a Cape Turtle Dove. Our pond and stream attract a lot of wildlife, birds bathe in it daily. Then they fly up in our trees and preen and clean their feathers after their bath. Do you see them keeping a beady eye on me? :-)
So my photos catch them with their feathers ruffled, not smooth. Who you looking at? You looking at me? Huh?
I see you!
While watching the doves I saw that the moon was showing in the day.. not a full moon but still pretty.
So.. our cousins are flying in today.. dinner will be tonight. We've spiffed up the house and soon I will set the table. We are grilling filet mignon and I'm baking some big potatoes and Kristi is making a broccoli salad and a zucchini cake with cream cheese frosting with a special "secret" ingredient, Fiori di Sicilia. A combination of citrus and vanilla. :-) I will take some photos, of course. To be continued.
Tomorrow we embark on a tour of the gorge, lunch at Multnomah Falls and ending up in Hood River. Then on Wednesday driving up to Mt. Hood and Timberline Lodge. Then to the beach. I will not be able to comment on my favorite blogs during this time as we'll be very busy. But I'll be back soon. Ciao bella! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
