I'm late, I'm late, I'm late...composing a post anyway.
I was gone all day yesterday, so today's post will be shorter than usual and an abridged version of posts-to-come.

First off, on the stitching front I kitted up a couple of "Smalls" by Dames of the Needle.  I figured they'd be good traveling companions, and I was right.

As I mentioned, I was out of town yesterday.  I traveled with a group from the Avid Gardeners to the Portland, OR area.  We visited two nurseries and a private garden.   

First up was the wholesale nursery Xera Plants.  What a rush to be able to shop wholesale - an amazing selection...

Then to the Germantown area of Portland to visit a remarkable garden.  one word - Wow!

And we finished up by visiting Morris at Joy Creek Nursery in Scappoose, OR.  We had decent weather (no rain!) and a wonderful time.  Nineteen gardeners managed to fill up the under carriage of the bus with their plant purchases.  
I will share the details, and many more pictures in further posts this week.

These smalls look great. At least the floss toss does. Looking forward to see more of it.
