I might have tried to work if the weather had been good. I did not want to go out, feeling poorly, in rain and wind.
When the sun appeared in the mid afternoon, Allan departed for Long Beach to do some weeding and deadheading.
Allan checked on the Veterans Field gardens:
Meanwhile, at home:
I’ve never seen Skooter and Smokey snuggle up before. It was Smokey’s idea; he tucked himself in under Skooter’s head.
I had read about Jaywick, a semi-derelict English seaside town recently in A Kingdom By The Sea by Paul Theroux and decided to look at a video about it, which turned into watching several. I could actually afford a bungalow there.
The longest and most official Jaywick video is here.
From that, instead of reading, I segued into the Bill Bryon Notes from a Small Island series on youtube. I meant to watch only the first one and ended up watching all of them in my comfy chair. Partway through my watching, Allan returned with a tasty crab roll for me from Captain Bob’s Chowder.
In closing, here is a public service announcement from Steve of the Bayside garden:
There are two upcoming special events which Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden hosts — the “Early Show” and “Mother’s Day” events. Details on one-sheet, attached. Both have judged flower shows and plant sales. Info on rules, etc., on both at: http://rhodies.org/chapter/pdx_activities_detailed.htm#early a page available at www.rhodies.org, the Portland Chapter’s website.
It could be a worthwhile day trip for Peninsula people.
