The Year at Peace Meal Garden

My Photo
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.

The photos that are posted today are in honor of our Best Buddy, Tim...who requested them, and who wants reminding how beautiful it all is...

And also, for our new friend Nan, who misses living in Oregon!

Mount Hood Organic Farm.

IF it hadn't been a cloudy day, you would be seeing majestic Mt. Hood (the highest in Oregon). They have a spectacular location and the farm is also a wedding venue! We saw the first snow on the higher elevations...October 4th!

More Fall Colors Around Our Yard.

Maple, Borage , Hawthorne Berries, and Sunflowers.

October Fall Colors.

These shots were taken in our yard...early in the fall. The grapes are particularly spectacular, and the peach tree! The Autumn Olive is loaded with berries for the birds, and the little vine maple is about as red as you can get!
