Hoyt Arboretum 2/15/2019
Two hours with no rain – we took a walk to the Winter Garden in Hoyt Arboretum, Washington Park. (Hike #9, 2 miles, 200 feet)
We saw more blooming witch hazel near the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial:
Crystal Springs 2/17/2019
A dry day – we met friends at Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden, and walked all around the lakes and garden paths. We then crossed the road and walked along Crystal Springs Creek through Reed Canyon on the Reed College campus. (Hike#10, 3 miles, 150 feet).
Winter plants were blooming, though nothing like the riot of color during rhododendron and azalea season.
Water birds and reflections:

I mounted the Jane Austen House Cross Stitch on foam board using sequin pins and a few stitches at the corners. The piece is now hanging on my wall!
I found buttons for my Brioche Headscarf, and have worn it!
