Spring has been a long time coming this year but fortunately the flowers having waited patiently are now out in full bloom. Houseguests here from Southern California for Whitman graduation asked for my clippers to cut flowers and make bouquets. They quickly made three bouquets using nine varieties of flowers, vines and shrubs. (Columbine, Oriental Poppy, Iris, Queen Anne's Lace, Golden Rod. Kiwi vine, Bleeding Heart, Flox and Bridal Veil). The neighbors across the street were having a garage sale so after breakfast off they went coming back with 2 more vases (couldn't resist a pink vase to match the living room) and more flowers. My living/dining room has never looked prettier or more festive. Bed and Breakfast guests are often very special people!

Shakespeare comes to Walla Walla

The Kirkman House Museum presented their annual "Sweet Home Walla Walla Homes Tour" April 17th. All seven homes on the tour were lovely BUT the secret surprise of the tour was the Historic (120 year old) Walla Walla Gas Plant which is being transformed into "THE POWER HOUSE THEATRE". Scheduled to open with "Merry Wives of Windsor" on May 19, 2011 with 5 performances and coming in August "Macbeth and The Comedy of Errors" both performed by the Seattle Shakespeare Company. Another good reason to visit Walla Walla. Of course I hope you will stay at The Maxwell House when you are visiting.

spring is here (coming fast)

Daffodils and Tulips are blooming so it must be so! Today I took my cruiser bikes in to get a tune up to be ready for Spring and bicycle rides to town and local wineries. This week-end a Mother and Daughter are coming to stay and visit the Whitman Campus. They will fly in and not need a car because we are only 2 blocks from campus and only 5 blocks from Main Street and a dozen or so restaurants. The weather promises to cooperate.
