The Year at Peace Meal Garden

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.

October Sunflowers! If I had more free time, I would set up my tripod and wait in the sunflower patch. The seed heads attract huge flocks of goldfinches and mourning doves!

Everytime we walk the dogs, they fly up like feathered clouds! When the dogs are gone, and I'm working alone, the birds come back, and the sound of their contented singing is the most beautiful music in the world!

Beauty (in many forms) is the gift of the sunflowers, to the gardener! Blessed Be...

Fall Garden. Pumpkins, melons, and gourds are still growing outside. The watermelon variety is called "Moon and Stars"...each melon has a yellow spot, and is covered with smaller dots. Even the leaves are spotted! It tastes yummy, too!

Peace Rally, Estacada...We had a good turn-out for our second-annual PEACE RALLY, in September. It was presented by PACT...Progressive Action Community
Team, which we helped organize. We had several great speakers, and a meditation for PEACE, led by our local yoga instructor, Nina Bradford!
