Well, I'm in Oregon

About an hour after we got back to my mother's house, we discovered that the surgery that was scheduled for tomorrow was cancelled by the doctor. This was in addition to a bunch of other incredibly annoying crap that happened on both coasts.

On the very positive side of things, today at dinner I sat at a table in front of a huge picture window and watched elk cavort across an uninhabited island in the bay. Then we went at bought ice cream and I took the dog down to the beach for a run.

After that I took pictures of the flowers in my mother's front yard:

I have no idea what these flowers are. If anybody is desperate to know, just post a comment and I'll ask my mother.

Also, I got a TON of knitting done on the plane today.


  1. Sounds like you have a good time out there in Oregon :-) Lovely flowers in your mothers garden, great shots! Hope everything will sort out with the surgery and all others, take care Virginia!

  2. beautiful flowers. sorry everything's not working out as you planned--hope it all turns out.

  3. not sure on the first--but photo's 2 and 3 are columbine(aka Aqueligia--that's how it's sounds, but i am sure its spelled wrong! from the latin root for eagle!)

    On view is the back of the flowers look like doves dropping there head down to drink water --(hence columbine (latin for dove/ also used a term for peacefulness)

    the second view is the back of the flowers look like a eagle's talons curled up! (so the flower is a peaceful dove like one, or a it's sharp preditors talons!--talk about different views!

    the last looks like a bee balm--but.. (that's just a guess.

  4. I love Oregon. I hope you enjoy your time there, it's a wonderful state!

  5. That blue one is gorgeous!
