How I Spent My Sunday - Part Two

After a great time at Xera Plants, our bus travelled to scenic Sauvie Island and Cistus Nursery.  They are famous for their Mediterranean and hardy tropical plants.

This lichen-covered bench was emblematic of our grey, rainy day.  

Every nursery needs a "shop" animal or two!

Cistus has amazing agaves and aloes.

Sauvie Island is a remarkable gem for the state of Oregon.  Though I was born in Oregon, I'd never been to Sauvie Island.  That was a huge over-sight!  I'm going to blog about the history of the island on my Waxing and Waning Blog if you'd like to read more about it.

Last night I ran into Joanne's fabric to get a couple of DMC colors I needed.  This is what reached out and bit me!  A blue tomato, and some pins and needles.
