Skywatch Friday - Astoria Column

My Skywatch submission this week is looking up at the historic Astoria Column. Astoria is one of the very oldest towns in Oregon, located on the coast about 2.5 hrs west of Gresham and Portland. This was taken last year about this time. This year, the Astoria Column is undergoing renovations to its inner staircase, which you can climb to the top. It should open again this spring (I hope!!)

"I could grow a stick"

I am getting married in a little over two months. I have a plan to decorate my wedding cake using nasturtiums. Typically, nasturtiums are planted after the final freeze of spring, and bloom in July or so. Since my wedding is in early June, special preperations had to be made. Luckily, my mom has the greenest of green thumbs. When I told her of my project, she planted the seeds in pots in her house. When I expressed even the slightest twinge of worry, she responded "Sarah, I could grow a stick", which erased all doubts. As of yesterday she had five baby nasturtiums growing (it has been just over a week since they were planted). My cake plans are going to work! :) THANKS MOM!!!

Mellow Yellow Monday - Pansy

I thought this bright little pansy made a good submission for Mellow Yellow Monday. Every day you see a little more blooms and brightness :)
