A Short Reading Break

Hubby and I took a short break from projects and reading to make our Spring pilgrimage to the Oregon Garden in Silverton, Oregon. We go there a number of times each year, usually as a day trip since it’s only an hour-and-a-half drive away from us. But once a year we like to stay an extra day at the resort next to the Garden and spend two days walking the trails/pathways and soaking up the beauty. Included in our special package for the resort this time were tickets to the nearby tulip festival. So we have enjoyed two days of beautiful early spring blossoms and blooms…and the weather cooperated and gave us blue sky, sunshine, and temperatures that weren’t exactly warm but comfortable enough.

When we returned home this afternoon, I discovered that a book I had pre-ordered months ago had arrived on my Kindle. It’s a perfect book to follow up such a lovely trip to the Garden! I have some fun reading ahead of me!

      I agree with you, Kristen! It’s magical with the blossoms and flowers. I think the deep gray of the northwest makes us really appreciate the explosion of color in the Spring!

    I think I told you a while back that we have been to the gardens and have stayed in their little cottages, as well. We had a package deal and had dinner in the restaurant, which was very good. I’m really looking forward to going again, maybe next spring.

    Speaking of Silverton, have you done the trail of ten falls loop hike at Silver Falls State Park? That’s on my list of places to re-visit in the coming year!

    P.S. Those tulips are gorgeous! Great photo!

      Thanks, Les! No, we haven’t done the ten fall loop hike yet, but need to plan it for this summer sometime. It’s been on our list, but we just haven’t done it yet. We thought about doing it last Fall, but we put it off because of all the rain we had then. It’s been so soggy this year, I wonder if it will ever dry out again!

      Oh I love that pink, too, Nan! So gorgeous! I have Linda Lear’s book, too, but haven’t read it. Must get to both of these bios soon!
