Two nice neighbors this morning — one of them apologetically explained to me that the hyacinth she was picking from my garden was one that a dog had knocked over and broken (totally fine, of course, but it was a funny moment), and then said, “You know your house is our favorite.” And then another, just walking by now with her dog, called out to me (as I sat on the porch with my dog), “You make the whole neighborhood happy.”
The power of flowers. 🙂 And a colorful house for backdrop. Pictured below: Redbud tree in bloom with Mt. Hood daffodils on left, checkered fritillary and white Thalia daffodils, redbud with Ollioules tulips and blue scilla, and oh, one more tulip whose name I’m forgetting. Oops.
