Photo Catch up

Last Days in the Crib... He never did learn how to climb out. He could climb in but not out! He is jumping up and down that is why he is blurry.

Big Boy Bed part I. Auntie Mary is still working on the frame so that will come shortly.

Checking out his iPod on his new bed! He won't sleep in it yet!

New sleeping bag for camping. LL Bean!

Photo Ben took of me while we were playing in his tent. That image on the left up close is his finger.

Self Portrait!

Hanging in the tent!

Multnomah Falls. When Ben saw it he said "That is humungous!" He is a little obsessed with water falls so thought he might like checking out a real one. He liked it.

Papa and the Boy in a little cave!

A garlic I grew from last fall. I put the cloves in last fall and this is my first harvest. I have about 8 or so still out there will keep them for a bit longer and then try drying them.

Am I the only blog without a photo of a Peony? I have two Peony plants- one has bloomed and fallen over from the rain and the other nothing.

Actually I should say a blooming Peony... looking back I did post a photo of the non blooming one.

I missed the Peony photo rage this year!

This Weekend

We are going to take a ride on this!
Some sort of Strawberry festival in Canby on Saturday. Going with friends so not sure of the details- couldn't find anything on line.

Will be a fine ride!

Also the big news- the Boy is getting a big boy bed soon so going mattress shopping as well. Linen's are bought- Auntie Mary is redoing the frame now all we need is the mattress! Fun!

The Yard

Finally got some veggies in. Only growing 2 tomatoes. One that can be grown in a hanging basket and a patio variety. After buying the hanging basket variety I realized I don't really have a sunny spot to hang it so I have it sitting on a turned over clay pot. Bottom left of the photo. Also have some eggplants and peppers going. Haven't grown either in a long time or never so it will be interesting to see how they turn out. Potatoes that came up from last years harvest!
Romaine Lettuce, Bright Lights Chard and Garlic. The garlic was planted last fall. Not sure when to harvest it?

Planted some hen and chicks around the edge of the bed. I have tons of them and figured I would spread them out a little. Miles isn't sure about them! Chives, Peony, Hebe and a new dahlia are all present in this photo!

A gift from my good friends Kim and Judy. I have been wanting a dwarf Lilac and here it is!

Ben in Bend! He is getting so big. That was a fun weekend. Him and I drove to Bend and hung out!
