Knitting – Frost Slippers
I crocheted the steeks,
and cut again.
I have basted the edges, and blocked.
Next I will sew soles to uppers, then add cuffs. There is a lot of finishing work in these slippers, but so far I am intrigued enough by the process to keep going!
Lyle Cherry Orchard, WA 3/29/2019
A beautiful day to hike up the cliffs above the Columbia River with friends, and try the new trail switchbacks. There are a few old cherry trees along the uppermost cliff loop that were not in bloom today, but we saw many wildflowers, including some balsamroot. (Hike #14, 5.6 miles, 1500 feet)
Plenty of new flowers along the way:
Lots in bloom these days,
Portland Cherry Blossoms – Sunday, March 31
The waterfront on a sunny day with cherry trees in bloom. Today is a day for embracing the crowds.

Wandering around amongst the trees and crowds:
And a little Portland weirdness, because it is always here.
