Update on Making the Cut

Just a quick update on how the ferns look
after my last post about them being cut.
They always come back so bright and shiny, pretty!!
I don't know how to link back to a previous
post but you can look on the old posts for
Making the Cut to compare.

This last one wasn't in the first post
but it is one of my favorite parts of
our shade garden with ferns.  They
were all cut down, too.

Driving home

This time of year in the Northwest
the mountains are still covered in snow.
We are having unusually beautiful
weather and this is what I see on
my drive toward home

Mount St. Helen's

When I was a child we would go
to Mt. St. Helen's and camp.  We
would fish on the gorgeous Spirit Lake.
When we moved away I missed my
beautiful mountain.
After returning to the northwest as
an adult, I lived in Portland, OR. when
Mt. St. Helen's blew her top.  I saw my
lovely mountain explode and later I saw
the devastation.  But I still love her.  She
is an old friend, and as an old friend I
see her beauty and the joy she brings to me.

For those of you far away, here she is, all
dressed up in white.
