A local woman here in Corbett grows Peonies commercially and sells them to local florists. She sells the extras locally so yesterday I texted her to arrange to go to her house to get a dozen stems. After seeing what a dozen looked like I decided we needed 2 dozen. LOL!
I put my magenta pink tablecloth on. Don't mind the wrinkles. :-)
These flowers are so POUFFY!
This bouquet is right in my sight line from the family room and my easy chair. I look up often and admire them.
I got three colors, pink, white and red. In retrospect, I should have gotten more of the dark red. Next time.
Dayle was driving his tractor around yesterday, mowing the pasture and then went into the forest to cut down the meadow you see there. What a pretty woodland view we have from our deck and by the pond.
The pretty magenta pink Azalea that Kristi planted for us is looking lovely.
I went out on the front porch to oversee some weed pulling by Hayden and this is the view from there, the green on the right is our Quince tree.
Looking to the left. Someone planted English ivy here and it's totally taking over the woodland floor, eliminating native undergrowth. Here, it is a baaaad invasive species, it is taking over our forests and killing our trees. I wish nurseries would stop selling it.
We have another Hosta to plant.
This Rhododendron is in front of the front porch.. it gives you more leaves than flowers.. LOL!
It's a pretty one!
Here's farmer Dayle at work. I'm feeding the fish.
The fish-food eating bird.
I captured all 6 fish at once!
This is where I am with my shawl project. More to go before I get to start on the colorful lacy border.
We plan an excursion with the boys to a drive through for lunch and to a nursery to pick up a few things. Masks will be worn. Oregon is doing very well with keeping ourselves protected from the virus. Here is a map to show you how the states are doing here. As you can see we have only a third compared to the states below and above us.
Well.. time to bid you adieu. Have a wonderful weekend!
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
