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.

Creme d'Casis...my favorite hollyhocks, and two views of poppies!

Four baby robins in a nest on top of our orchard ladder, are pictured first...and then...at long last, the first pictures of this year's vegetable garden!

We had a lot of extra rain during June, but when the Solstice arrived the weather turned hot and dry. We've already had two days over 100 degrees, which is very warm for our area. Watering the garden and green house is an on-going chore!

Here we see lettuce and other greens, and tomatoes and peppers inside our greenhouse.

Sneak Peek inside the new Estacada Public Libray...Grand Opening August 5th!


 Posted by Picasa

The month of May was so rainy here in Oregon, that I didn't want to take my camera outside! Here are a few new shots of the flower gardens. Stay tuned for vegetables! The summer is nearly here, and for us, that means the start of the Festival volunteer season! Check back with us soon for photos from the Pride NW Festival and Parade, The Oregon Country Fair, and The Estacada Summer Celebration. You will also see pictures from the grand opening Gala for the new Estacada Public Library, later on in August. Don't miss it! PEACE OUT.
