Lavender



When my husband and I bought our first home this past October there were some pretty haggard looking lavender plants in our front yard. I have since relocated them to our side yard in a shady, plant friendly location, and today I noticed that they are starting to flower, and when the sun hits them, the smell is delicious!

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

Evening Sun Halo



I have seen plenty of sun halos. They are actually quite common around here. But I had never seen one so late in the day before. I caught this one at about 5:30pm as the sun was already behind the trees in my backyard heading towards the horizon.

Alpenglow Over Frog Lake

Mt Hood from Frog Lake, Oregon ©www.hoodphotography.com

On Memorial Day, my husband, son, brother and I packed up and headed up Mt Hood to go fishing. We had such a great time! I have not visited Frog Lake in ages, and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was a quiet, private playground for both kids and adults. We all had a fun time, met some new people, fished, enjoyed some food and drinks, and witnessed a slight pinkish glow on the mountain as the sun went down.

Happy Memorial Day


Happy Memorial Day to my fellow Americans. Be sure to take a moment from your festivities to honor those who have given so much for your freedom.

This photo of the American Flag with Mt Hood in the distance was taken from the Willamette National Cemetery.
