Sunday was a big day for the flower bed outside of my front door. My mother and I took the Winter Daphne out of its pot and transplanted into the flower bed. I also selected two Spanish Lavenders to plant on each side of the Daphne. Hopefully their fragrance and purple colors will blossom after the Daphne is finished for the year. In addition we planted some Hyacinths. Inside Dad and I finished up the interiors doors that we had been working on for some time.
Yesterday our basic climbing class swung into high gear as we assembled at Rocky Butte Park to practice rock climbing, belaying, and repelling. Although it was relatively dry, the rock was wet and cold, which made climbing a challenge for the students. I got the chance to demonstrate a Carabiner Brake Rappel, something that I have not done for some time. Thankfully I did not have to demonstrate the Dulfersitz Rappel Method.
