It's funny how our Pin Oak tree leaves turn red in patches. Here is one of the first bunches showing color.
It got down to 38 deg F the other night so I thought I'd procrastinated long enough re-potting my red Hibiscus.. so we accomplished that on Saturday. Then I had to grit my teeth and prune my old tree. It was scraggly to the max. It killed me to cut off branches with buds ready to open on the ends. Then I watered it in and this pot should give it room to grow for many years. It weighs a TON. The boys had to use a hand-truck to wheel it in and then muscled it onto it's ceramic drip platter which was placed on a rolling plant stand. It's now back in it's sunny window.. and I'll be keeping an eye on it hoping it will grow and flourish.
My dear husband is a Class A grandfather. The best. He took our two grandsons to an event at the local Fire Department for a hotdog and a ride on the fire truck. They had a great time.
Hayden got to ride in the front seat, Caleb in the back.
And off they go.
They drove through Corbett to the church on Mershon, turned around and went back.
Last week he took to "Wonderland", a video and game arcade. Gosh, they are getting big, aren't they?
They tried out air hockey.
My sister Denise and her husband and two of her kids went to the balloon festival in Albuquerque, New Mexico. These images are taken by her daughter Whitney, using her iPhone!
This image was taken from the air as they all went on a balloon ride! Exciting!
They got up before dawn to watch the balloons fill with hot air.
My sister Denise got this photo of Mt. Hood as they flew home, using her iPhone. :-)
We are making lists and checking off things as we pack for our departure tomorrow for 10 days at the beach in our travel trailer. My next post will be some photos from there. The weather forecast is not good.. but we'll soon find out! At any rate, we have fun no matter what. :-)
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
