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!
