Spring still seems like a vague possibility out here in Oregon, so much so that finding May Day flowers to sketch was quite a challenge. The neighbors “donated” a trio of tulips from the side yard, I found a handful of wild hyacinth that didn’t get mangled when the new front steps were poured, and last summer’s herb pots yielded two stems of mint. The weather guessers have promised us a true spring day for May 1st, so enjoy your virtual flower delivery while Griff and I head off to Findley Wildlife Refuge to see if we can spot some baby geese!
I spend a lot of mornings at Sam’s Station restaurant, contemplating Breakfast, the Universe, and Everything. They have the best hashbrowns in Oregon, and the salt and pepper shakers are a triumph of simple design and reflected light.
