We picked up some new pansies the other day to fill in our pots on the window boxes on our garden shed.. and they had some new varieties I'd never seen with frilly edges - have you seen these? Aren't these adorable?Here is another color.. there was a third but it didn't have a pretty bloom on it.
And our bearded iris has bloomed. I want some other colors of these.
I love these.. my mom loved them too and they remind me of her.
Our lilacs are at their prime right now.. it smells great outside right now.
Dayle hung up a new American flag on our garage barn the other day.. it looks nice!
We went to dinner at Tad's the other night and the sun was sparkling off the river, it was great. You can see the bridge downriver and even the cliffs of Washington state in the distance.
Here is their famous sign.. cute.
I drove to Multnomah Falls to volunteer yesterday and in the parking lots was the Oscar Mayer "Weinermobile".. I got a photo of it. :-)
The ferns are sprouting out new growth in front of the lodge. This variety is called "Maidenhair Fern" and they grow wild all around the falls.
This is the "Sword Fern".. they are wild and native all around the falls, too. They also grow all in our own woods here, and all over in the gorge.
I got this shot of the falls.. still lots of water going over and see all the new green of the deciduous trees?
It was still cool enough that the lodge had a wood fire going in the great room.
On the drive home I got a somewhat fuzzy photo of the larkspur which were in bloom all the way on the historic highway.
I pulled out in the scenic viewpoint on the way home and got this shot of a perfectly clear sunny day in the Columbia River Gorge.. beautiful.
I hope you have great plans for the weekend. We're going to our DIL's college graduation tomorrow and to my son's house for a Mother's Day BBQ on Sunday. Happy Mother's Day to my readers who celebrate tomorrow!! Have a GREAT weekend!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
