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 pileated woodpecker was enjoying a crab apple snack right outside our big front window!

Celery and sage are about all that's left of the vegetable garden now...but both are useful for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, so we're grateful!

The holly trees are nearly ready for holiday wreathes and sprays, though you definatley need gloves to work with holly!

Hey, we have those woodpeckers, too. One day Charmaine and I were in the house and we thought that someone was using an electronic hammer on the side of our house near the roof. When I looked out it was a pileated woodpecker on an electric pole fifty feet away - the sound was transmitted through the wires as well.

Last week I used up the last quart of our 2005 tomato crop. I, too savored the flavor. We didn't get a crop worth canning in 2006.

Great blog - keep it up. Kit
