Deep Red

Last weekend I visited the Swan Island Dahlia Farm and have many photos of dahlias to share. This one is simple, but so pretty. Very representative of a common dahlia, and also very deep in color. Lovely!

Dusk over Timothy Lake

As I mentioned in yesterdays post, we have been enjoying Timothy Lake a bit this summer. This was dusk over the lake on Saturday night, just as we were packing up to leave after a day in the sun.

Look at the Fluffy Clouds!

I have really been enjoying Timothy Lake this summer. We tend to frequent other Mt Hood lakes, such as Trillium or Clear, but I have visited Timothy twice now in the past month, and my husband have made plans to go back again in September. The water is clear and warm, and the walk around the lake is easy enough for me to push our son in his stroller, which is a huge bonus. He is getting too heavy for his backpack! This past weekend, the sun was out, and the fluffy clouds dotted the blue sky, which we have not seen in a long time. Heavenly!

Dahlias for Days!

This past Sunday I traveled to the small town of Canby, OR and visited the Swan Island Dahlia Farm. I had never been before. It is amazing! The rows and rows of gorgeous dahlias are an awesome sight. There are so many varieties! There is a big dahlia festival which starts in two weeks or so, but I wanted to go early to beat the crowds, and I am glad that I did because I practically had the fields to myself.

Lichen on a Tombstone

I am really into strolling around old cemeteries. My mom is too, and she brought me up to appreciate the interesting history and beauty that cemeteries have to offer. We visited a really old Oregon cemetery yesterday, and walked through, hunting for the oldest grave or biggest family plot. I had my camera with me, of course, and snapped this photo of some orangey yellow lichen peeling off the top of one of the old tombstones.
