Hello! I'm glad to have you drop in for a visit. Isn't this new Lupine amazing? We discussed where to plant it and will do that soon.
I found just the right footstool for my new deck chair. It's from Ikea and is called an Alseda and it's made of woven banana fiber over a steel frame. Although I found this online the shipping was not good so I drove to Ikea after our Portland Women's Forum meeting yesterday and walked in and found it. It's just the right height for putting your feet up a bit. The last part of the puzzle will be a small table where I can set my drink, camera and iPhone. :-)
The hanging basket will be showing up in this blog for a while. :-)
I will also show this Begonia as the flowers open and the plant fills out. I love wintered over plants!
Richard, our attic remodeler, installing a new window. This will be so much nicer up there with more light and ventilation. Today he's taking white bead board up and nailing it to the walls. Last will be the laminate flooring. Yay!
The 4th of July rose is showing off right now!
We had our last Portland Women's Forum meeting of the year yesterday. Our wonderful out-going president, Bev, gave her officers a gift for our hard work during her 4 years service as the leader of our group. How nice!
We each got this cute tea towel! Sweet!
We have such a nice group of people that belong to our organization!

I took my big camera out to capture photos of some Cedar Waxwings but they did not cooperate so you'll have to settle for a Goldfinch. LOL!
Kristi decided to put the baby rabbits back out where she found them, inside the play house. They are gone now so hopefully their mother took them back, although I hear that if their eyes are open they should be self-sufficient, thanks Kathy B!
Good old Facebook.. there is a Corbett Group and someone put up a notice that they are growing Peonies and would deliver, so we just got this gorgeous bouquet, cut the stems and put them in the cut glass pitcher I found not long ago.. on Facebook Marketplace. :-)
I asked for mixed colors so she brought red, pink and white ones. *love*
They smell wonderful, too!
