I started the other day in the vegetable garden, giving everything a water, writing in my new Journal and reading “A Year in Provence.” The temperature was predicted to be in the 90s, so I got started early.
Later, after watching some how-to videos for courage and direction, I wired and trimmed my larch in the Hundred Acre Wood. It was getting too lanky and needed some shape. Bonsai are always a slow work in progress, it helps me exercise my patience.
I had a rest and got up to make dinner, and then Auntie Bridgett and I headed out for a bike ride! The weather is pleasant in the evening, with the sun filtered through the trees. We rode to Ladd’s Addition, where I helped Auntie Katie plant her new Rhododendron.
He is a ‘Tall Timber’ Rhododendron and she has named him Barney because he’s going to be six feet tall and purple.
Life gets very full in the summer! I’ll keep you posted on all the adventures.

Yep. And Summer is almost here.
Yes, here in Portland we seem to have gone directly from cold wet winter to hot blazing summer, with nary a gentle day in between! We had our first bike ride, all my veggies are above ground, and we’re eating dinner on the balcony most nights. We always try to do it all in summer… it is such a wonderful time here in the Pacific Northwest. Love you, girl! Jude
