I have travelled more in the last week or two than I think I have in the last several MONTHS. I went to Aurora, Oregon, for an event called "Gardenpalooza", and though it was about a 2 hour drive, it was so pretty. I had wanted to see this, as I had heard about it for some time, but had always had other commitments on the day it was held. I fought it out with the Universe, and managed to win this round. I walked my feet off today, there was flowers, there were garden tools, there were trees, there was host of the show Garden Time, Willam McClenathan and Judy Alleruzzo. (Which while it won't mean a darn thing to people outside the local area, I thought were pretty neat folks!)
I didn't take many pictures, but here is a little sample of some of the pretty things...
And for any that were confused by yesterday's blog link, or couldn't get it to work for whatever reason... It was a video of Rick Astley, and it is a play on a computer joke, being "Rick Rolled". That's about as thrill packed as my jokes get, sometimes. I really wish I had thought of Louise's idea. Horse stall, apples. I tip my hat, that would have been great!
So, I am going to go rest my feet now. Oh, and I am going to have to explain to Husband about the finer points of dried beans. I was going to make bean soup. He said that I should just wait until I got home. Ahem. Anyone else have no desire to eat pea gravel? I also didn't want to make dinner AFTER returning home... Poor guy, he just doesn't know the finer points of cooking things, on occasion. Of course, this is the man that told me that the recipe for cheese soup is to melt Velveeta. (Yes, I do the majority of the cooking, why do you ask?)
