We thought our late snow and rainy melt had taken care of "spring showers," but we were wrong. The front that moved into the PNW moved right into NE Oregon, as well. The forecast is for 10 days of some kind of precipitation, and the third day produced a full inch in the rain gauge. There were short breaks throughout the day, with one of them around 6:30 p.m. I drove to my sister's to photograph some new tulips she had raved about. I also photographed some peony "seedlings" as we call them: peonies our late mother developed by crossing wild and domestic peonies. These plants bloom early with delicate flowers that don't last long. They are beautiful after the rain!
