Cut Flowers

Except in winter when there's very little growing, I've adopted the habit of refreshing my cut flower bouquets at least once per week with whatever happens to be outside the door (or poking through from a neighbor's yard). Sometimes this means bouquets of ferns and sticks in fall, or dandelions and leafy branches in early spring. Right now, it means bright pink roses and peonies, and they smell divine.

    1. Ooh, I would try Happy Knits, Knit-Purl, and I've heard good things about Twisted. Truthfully, though, I spend most of my yarn money at the Mill End store which is more toward milwaukie (and less specialized than a lot of the Portland shops).
