Berry Picking

We went to pick some blueberries, boysenberries, and marionberries at a nearby farm. It was quiet and peaceful. It was nice to have an escape outside. I made a lovely galette with the berries and some fresh apricots.

Flowers and A New Leaf

There have been some signs of spring here in Portland though many days have felt as blustery and cold as winter. I brought out my sundresses a month ago, but still have yet to wear them. Today, the sun is peaking out from behind the rain clouds, and I feel like spring is in the air. I'm not quite sure if I'm falling for another one of Mother Nature's tricks or not...

Flowers are blooming all the same. Here are a few recent photos from my walks near home.

Cherry Blossoms on the Waterfront

In Portland, the prettiest time of the year to walk on the waterfront is when the cherry blossoms are blooming in March or April. The trees are gorgeous when they're in bloom.

I wish the city would plant a few new trees each year and eventually cover the entire stretch of the waterfront park. Wouldn't that be lovely?
