W e enjoyed our stay in Ashland again this spring. The weather cooperated for a few days to give us blue skies and warm temperatures so we could enjoy porch sitting. The rest of the days were gray and drizzly. Oh well, it just meant we had time to read and shop!
The trees and shrubs showed off some of their color in Lithia Park.
The Shakespeare Theaters were just around the corner. We saw five incredible plays:
The Imaginary Invalid
To Kill a Mockingbird
The Language Archive
August: Osage County
Measure for Measure
Porch sitting one afternoon for happy hour. We were glad it was covered! Check out our cool coasters. They're portable!
The wine label competition heated up for this year's theme of flowers. We crowned the new Cork Queen on Thursday evening
On one of our walks, we came across this monkey tree. You may need to enlarge this picture to see what I mean. It will be a topic of a future blog I'm thinking..
We took turns creating some amazing breakfasts and dinners.
Sadly, two of our usual seven were unable to attend this year. Not being present can be dangerous. We crowned one of the missing as Cork Queen in abstentia, and found the perfect winning bottle (see picture below) for her to enter.
Since we had to have the celebration picture for our album, we created a spittin' image of her, complete with crown.
We had a great time and are already planning our next year's getaway!
