PORTLAND ROSE TEST GARDENS

After Carissa's appointment July 11 in Portland to try out a Speech Easy devise, we had two options: the Zoo or the Rose Gardens. You can see which one won! By the way, the devise worked!!! Rissa didn't stutter at all while wearing the hearing aid like devise! Hopefully very soon she'll have her own and start learning to use it with proficiency. It was late afternoon by the time we got out of the appointment, so we did a mozy through the gardens and then sat down to our sack dinners amidst all the beauty.
After dinner Grammy & Grandad found a bench with a view. It was very difficult to make ourselves get up and go home, but it's an hour and a half to home and unfortunately tomorrow is another work day.
However, on the way out, there is always one more beautiful, perfect bud that must be admired.

I know, I know, Cathy!! It's just that this time of year juggling the picking of the raspberries, cucumbers, blueberries, now tomatoes, and soon green beans; and then the canning of afore mentioned. Not to mention the time it takes watering all of that! Anyway when I do get some free time I'd rather read a book on the porch swing. But you lucked out~ it got too hot to be outside so blogging won out!
