With the warm weather we have had here in Portland (warm but rainy) there is a lot starting to happen out in the garden. Some pretty things are popping up!!
February 7 – Day 33
We celebrated Valentine’s Day early with our annual Beach Babes and their Boy’s Valentine dinner. My friend April hosted this year and set such a pretty table.
and can I just say her herb and blueberry stuffed pork tenderloin was pretty amazing too! I’m working on getting the recipe.
February 8 – Day 34
My neighbor Carmen called me to come over and see the amazing site on her kitchen counter! Pans and pans of homemade cinnamon rolls which she was freezing and then mailing off to her children and grandchildren! What an amazing grandma and what a pretty picture it makes!
February 9 – Day 35
On the way home from Carmens this sight caught my eye in another neighbor’s yard. The gorgeous green moss on her curb growing around her hens and chicks succulent. I am sure she thinks it is a bother but it sure was pretty that day. Living in the damp NW moss seems to grow everywhere! She probably thought I was crazy as she pulled up in front of her house and found me on my hands and knees taking pictures of her moss!
February 10 – Day 36
More pretties are starting to bloom in my garden. The hellebores are in full bloom!
February 11 – Day 37
The pink dawn viburnum are blooming too – the first things to bloom in the garden.
February 12 – Day 39
and the euphorbia wulfenii! I love green!!
February 13 – Day 40
I helped with the theater work party lunch over at the high school on Saturday and put together this yummy and very pretty salad! Nothing prettier or yummier than green spinach and red strawberries! I served it with a nice lemon vinaigrette – recipe coming!
Well that’s my pretty for the week. Hope you found some pretty in your week!
