The weather in Portland today simply could not be more beautiful! As I write this, it’s 71.6 degrees with a light breeze and blue, blue skies — a treat for those of us used to mostly grey days since late last October (though they are beautiful, too). The grey skies and misty rain will be back tomorrow, but today is a day for doing anything and everything outdoors. For me, that always means camera time, so here are some photos I snapped at two different nearby parks here in southwest PDX, and I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves; enjoy!
Of course, any day I get to see Mount Hood automatically makes it a good day; I was overjoyed to be able to jump out of the car and get a clear view, as I haven’t seen it in months!
My first real spring in decades…ahhhhhh…
In other news, the lettuce seeds are sprouting, just like the seed envelope said they would! The starts are doing well and the red leaf lettuce is getting redder by the day. We’ll have frost tonight, however, so hoping they’ll all continue to do well.
All sorts of big and small pleasures wrapped up in one gorgeous day…!
