The walk started off in a display garden showcasing peonies, hostas, columbine, delphiniums, allium, lobelia and clematis. The walk then wound up and down rows of peonies until we returned to the start point.

On the way home, I took Mom to lunch at Oswego Grille in Wilsonville. We then spent the afternoon hanging out at Mom's house before driving 20 minutes to my sister's house to play pinochle.
When we lived in Oregon, our group had a three-table potluck pinochle party once a month (except summer). Over the years people moved away or lost interest. I think it was great that my sister organized a party with family and friends while I'm here. Thank you, Jan.
When my brother, Frank, and sister-in-law, Gina, arrived at the party, they brought my sister, my Mom and I each a bouquet of pink carnations. What a thoughtful thing to do. The flowers are beautiful and much appreciated.
