Location: The Oregon Cascades, near PDX, United States

Our home in the Oregon Cascades, provides us with peaceful days, and star-filled nights. We are grateful for fresh air, clean water, and enough space for our garden.

This picture of Mt. Hood (Oregon's highest peak) was taken near our home. This winter has brought more snow pack than The Mountain has seen for many years. Posted by Picasa

Miss Flora, our Hungarian Kuvasz, reminds us that there are many signs of Spring in the garden...we just need to look a little closer to find them!

There's not too much to see in the early spring garden, but with a little hard work, and lots of blessings, a garden will appear on this spot. Stay tuned throughout the year to see what will happen! Posted by Picasa

Welcome the Spring Season.

Here's a poem from "Heartsongs" by Mattie Stepanek. It seems appropriate with our our photos of unseasonable snow!

If you like it, please check out his last book "Just Peace", written together with President Carter!

Indian Winter

Hey!
It's cold out here today!
This is May!
And it's supposed to be
Spring
Turning into
Summer,
So I can have my birthday.
But I need my jacket,
and my hat.
Oh, brother!
I wonder---
Who played with the seasons last night
While we were all sleeping?

Here we are in the garden!

This picture was taken in the spring of 2005 by our good neighbor, Leslie Atlansky.

We used this shot for the press release, when we won The Spirit of Pride award for our many years of volunteer work on the security crew at the annual Pride celebration in Portland, Oregon.Posted by Picasa

We rarely see heavy snow like this, at any time of year...especially not in March! Posted by Picasa

Snowy March morning... Posted by Picasa

Snow in March!

Our area of the Oregon Cascades rarely sees snow in March! Our elevation at 1,000 feet was the key to this spring snow storm! The dogs loved it. We think it's kind of pretty...but we'll be grateful to move on into SPRING!
