Weekend in Pictures

Um, so yeah, this was in my drafts folder! Here’s what our last weekend looked like! 🙂

Woo hoo! EMSWCD‘s Native Plant Sale pickup day was Saturday morning so we biked over to get our annual fill on Northwest natives at incredible prices, including salal, red flowering currant, red osier dogwood, oxalis, wild ginger, red columbine and more!

We planted two native salal shrubs from the sale and put them in a great shady spot near the garage – can’t wait til they get big and share their berries!

But we didn’t stay in the garden the whole time. At the end of the weekend I kicked off my new biking exercise regimen accompanying my husband on his commute to work (since I work from home, my commute is nonexistent now so I thought this would get me back into a healthy habit), and we stopped by to admire this monstrous copper beech tree in the Irvington neighborhood which is a hundred years old and measures 21′ around. This photo I snapped doesn’t do it justice!

    Plant sales already? It’s not safe to plant things here until June first so it will be a while yet. That tree is gorgeous, it looks like two lovers hugging.
