"if I'm walking through the rain and I hear you call my name I will break into a run without a pause.." Avett Brothers
Symbolically thyme stands for strength and courage, and yarrow for healing. I want to grow both these plants right now to share.
Over the years that I’ve been posting inspiration on this blog, I have tried to keep it all about flowers, gardens and homey things. Sometimes life creeps in and I’m impelled to share some of that with you today. This summer a cousin of mine passed away unexpectedly and left my family and I not only with his loss but also with the job of selling a property that belonged to our dear grandparents. In the end it’s working out and the buyers could not be nicer people than if we had dreamed them up. The energy that it's taken to sort this out has been great. Thanks to the loved ones and good counsel around us that have helped make it possible.
My mother has also been through three surgeries in the last four weeks, the flowers in this post are for her. Get well Mom we are intending all good things for you.

I've been missing the food in Portland lately and being able to walk next door for a coffee at Palio. Another plus are the Food carts. Knowing that my sister and her family are visiting next week and I won't be in town doesn't help ~ hi Erin ! Here's a great local food court on SE Belmont St. yum ! I'll be back soon Portland ..
