Weekend in Pictures
walking in the rain at Alberta Park…our pup’s still a wuss in the rain but doing better – and loves getting dried off at home!
Grabbed a Car2Go and headed over to the utterly massive Portland Nursery to get raspberry, blackberry, marionberry, currant, and gooseberry starts! Love going there on rainy days when it’s less crowded! Also they have a great video on planting raspberries which is great. (image source)
Took advantage of a break in the weather to get our blueberries in. Last year the old ones succumbed again to rust disease, so we’re starting over with 5 highbush varieties in our sunny and newly enclosed side yard. Crossing fingers!
Roo getting a scalp massage 🙂
And finally, just a little AMEN! to Bob Dylan’s Grammy speech…(no kidding on Waits!)
“Critics have been giving me a hard time since Day One. Critics say I can’t sing. I croak. Sound like a frog. Why don’t critics say that same thing about Tom Waits? Critics say my voice is shot. That I have no voice. What don’t they say those things about Leonard Cohen? Why do I get special treatment? Critics say I can’t carry a tune and I talk my way through a song. Really? I’ve never heard that said about Lou Reed. Why does he get to go scot-free?”
~ Bob Dylan
