We had an appointment in Portland Sunday afternoon to get Carissa's new Speech Easy devise fitted. Afterwards we debated about whether to go to the Rose Test Gardens or Swan Island Dahlia Farm. The dahlias won. On the way we stopped at Willamette Falls for a quick look.
Now how would you like to look out your front window at that?!!
"Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food, and medicine to the soul." Luther Burbank
Wondering who Luther Burbank was? He was an American plant breeder and horticulturist. The World Book Encyclopedia says he developed many new trees, fruits, flowers, vegetables, grains, and grasses. You have heard of the Burbank potato haven't you?
Today is our oldest daughter's birthday. It seems like only yesterday. It was 104* that day and as far as we know still holds the record. Happy Birthday, Jessi! We love you!!
