Primroses ?

I'm not so sure.
They look pretty fu fu to me!
I was stunned by the flower volume and variety on just one plant.
Just wait, there's another on my table with yellow and peach flowers all fluffy and whirly petaled like this.
What fun!

A Little Bird...

Another backyard visitor, the NW version of a blue jay. This Stellar Jay is only one of a bunch that hang out in my trees and buzz around the yard.

Wild and enjoying Oregon

Blue Botanicals
Baby Blue Eyes and Columbine grow wild in Oregon and I extend them an invitation to my yard. My garden books claim they thrive in Southern Oregon but I've seen both in my neck of the woods and I've even had a relative of Baby Blue Eyes (Five Spot) pop up in a window box.
I remain hopeful!

Wild and Purple; Two of my Favorites


What could be better? Flowers that grow wild and are purple! If I could get them to grow in my yard...perfect!

A Little Bird...

A Little Bird
Just like my little grandson, headed one way and looking another.

Seems like ages since I picked up a brush so a little painting gets me back in the swing.
