Of Unexpected Blessings: Pt I

 
Who would have ever thought that in mid February our plum tree would have its first bloom?
And our garden would also be seeing daffodils, daphne, camellia and pieris blooms too?
And who would have ever thought that my Farmer Boy would be mowing
our yard on a sunny, dry weekend?
Certainly not I.

 
And who would have thought their wish would come true and they would be standing looking at this beautiful coastal creek -- all because of a little girl's request and a traffic jam?

 
Or that a certain big girl would be blessed with seeing sights she had never seen or be able to touch and walk on the rock that has enchanted her for a long, long time--
but has always been just a little out of reach?

 
And who would have thought that the tide would be so kind (LOL)
as to reveal more of the magic that is THIS beach...?
 
 
Not I, not I.
But there was even more to come on this special weekend of love.
And it involved a return to a location that was changed because of weather that was not nearly as wonderful as our weather has been...
 
 
In other news,
the G Room bed has been finished and has officially been slept in by a
 certain, much loved Small One.
I will soon be calling upon all of you very gifted crafters to
advise me on a certain idea I have about it...
 
How was your weekend?
Blessings,
Aimee

Satsuma plum bloom--just in time for Valentine's Day:)
Neskowin Creek looking inland
(two creeks come together on what is considered by some a very romantic beach;
kind of like two hearts becoming one...)
North portion of Proposal Rock
(yep I really like this romantic Valentine's Day weekend theme I got going here)
Looking south towards Cascade Head and part of the "ghost forest"
More "ghost forest"

Time for bed. Lots of garden work to get done today:)

Love the beach pictures Aimee. I'm missing the coast something fierce over here in the dry inland area. Isn't our weather just something wonderful lately? I feel for the East Coasters though-and we're heading there Saturday! Ick! So glad you got to spend time at your beloved beachs.
Blessings,
Betsy

What wonderful photos. Thank you for sharing. It's so nice that your weather has been a little milder. Here in the UK it is still very cold.

God bless you and your family.

I sure do enjoy your beach trips and views. How nice that little one's room and special bed are being used by her. What good grandparents you are!
((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Thanks! You'll have to come for a visit again one of these days, after you get back from seeing Miss Piper of course! Yep. They are sure getting hit hard this winter while we are enjoying our spring-in-winter weather. Hopefully things will start to improve soon.
Blessings,
Aimee

Beautiful post, Aimee! So happy to hear everything worked out well. You captured some very lovely scenes, and I enjoyed seeing your photos.

It's amazing that your plum tree is blooming, and your husband is already mowing! Gives me hope here in the frigid prairie of Iowa.

Great now you've really made me homesick for Oregon! I was already ... This time of the year I always have a serious attack of wanting to be in two places at once. And really I love every one of your pictures! Our daughter doesn't do pictures much, but her words (in our phone calls) sound just like your pictures look! Early spring! I hope it lasts. Thank you !

@victor~
You are most welcome! Blessings to you and your family in this Lenten season.
Blessings,
Aimee

@Jill~
Thank you! You are most kind:) Wishing you and your family a wonderful week also!
Blessings,
Aimee

@Sallie~
Sorry about that--as you know this weather and early spring isn't normal at all. Not that I am complaining about it though...sounds like your daughter is very happy with it too:):) So happy that you enjoyed my pictures. Neskowin is an amazing beach and will always be one of my most favorite ones because it is ever-changing and so picturesque!
Blessings,
Aimee

The weather is so warm, crazy!!! So glad you got to visit the beach again :)

Lorrie said...

That beach with those rocks is amazing. What a romantic and delightful place. So glad you went and so glad you shared it with us.

@Jackie~
I sure am loving our warm weather and sunny days! Part of me wants it to continue and parts of me know we need rain in the lowlands and snow in the mountains. Until God sends it though, I shall embrace these lovely days:)
Blessings,
Aimee

@Lorrie~
You are most welcome! It is a fabulous beach witht the rocks, creeks and ghost forest!
Blessings,
Aimee
PS: I should say, that in one contest, it was voted the most romantic beach in Oregon.
