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.

Victory for the Spirit Bear. British Columbia has granted permanent protection to over five million acres of the coastal Great Bear Rainforest! This area is home to the last of the remaining, white-colored Spirit Bears, who live remotely on the off-shore islands. Blessed Be! Posted by Picasa

A friend sent me a whole series of shots of this transparent butterfly. I thought it was very unusual, and good enough to share...It goes with this poem:

Hope
is a rainbow of butterfly wings. Gently it beckons, lightly it sings.
