The weekend started off with a bit of fun. We headed out Friday to see the Portland Winterhawks in game one of the WHL Western Conference Championship game against the Kamloops Blazers. I’m a big fan of the Winterhawks, I’ve been going to their games since I was a kid. The games are always a good time. Lots of good energy – especially during the playoffs! We sat right behind a row of fans who had driven down from Kamploops (which is up in Canada, about 3 hours north of Vancouver). They were decked out in full Blazers gear. They were good natured, even as their team found themselves on the losing end of the game, 1-4.
The rest of the weekend was all focused on some gardening. We had a large tree branch break last winter, compromising the tree. The tree was removed leaving us with an empty parking strip. Now that spring has finally come to the Pacific Northwest, it was time to fill it up! Saturday we ventured out to get our supplies from a couple local nurseries. Brad had worked on a plan for what we wanted to plant in the parking strip – to help us stay focused when shopping for plants. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all those cool plants in the nurseries!
Here’s the line up of plants!
Next steps in our gardening adventure; get the veg garden going in the back yard. This week is warm and sunny here in PDX – perfect timing!
We ended the weekend with dinner out with friends, finished up with some Salt & Straw ice cream. Well deserved after all our hard work.
