I saw this heart shaped table in an antique store. I doubt that it is an antique but I sure did like it.
Maybe because of the twig legs? If it is still there the next time I go back, I might just buy it but I would want to paint it patriotic colors. . . What do you think?

but I have seen many of them for weeks now.

blue skies (which have been very limited) with pretty blossoms hanging from the trees. . .
and varigated Tulips. . .
and trees with new leaves on them . . .
and many boats on the Columbia!

I was walking home in the rain and soemthing caught my eye in the tree above where I was walking. . . yes, it is partial blue skies in spite of the rain -- that's not what I saw. It was beautiful pink flowers! It was not until I arrived home and looked at the photos that I discovered the perfect heart shape. Isn't it beautiful?

This is Wendy Rose, a sculpture made by women about women who worked in the Kaiser shipyards during the war when the men were off fighting. They built the ships the men used to fight. I have featured this Wendy Rose in the past but stopping by on my walk was a good break on the way home along the Columbia. CLICK on to see better.

Past the peninsula jutting into the Columbia River that is west of Wintler Park and looking backtowards the east, you see the I-205 bridge to Portland and glorious Mt. Hood covered in snow in the background. Last summer I walked across that bridge several times. It was a very noisy walk because the pedestrian lane was in the middle of cars going both ways.
The peninsula used to be undeveloped with berry patch overgrowth and a "hole"in the peninsula where one could see the river beneath. It was scary. They filled the hole and paved the peninsula and added many benches and flowering plants after tearing out the berry bushes. It is now a beautiful place for a stroll and to sit awhile when the sun is shining.
