The bright noonday sun was not a photographer's friend, but you know I had to try anyway....
|The grand entrance|
|The ubiquitous slug, crafted into an elegant drinking fountain, overlooks beauty|
|Brian on a giant compass, under a weeping blue atlas cedar (I think)|
|"Sunflower, good morning, you sure do make it like a sunny day..."|
|Water features and kids, what can I say?|
|I need some of these morning glories!|
|Gordon House, the only Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building in Oregon|
Jenkins Aegean Turkish spindle and some Gotland roving from Franna on my wrist distaff from Carolina Homespun did the trick nicely.
My gardens at home are not nearly so scenic right now. The grass is crunchy and brown, we have no water features (except when someone forgets to turn off the water and a stock tank runs over), no historic structures or sculptures, and no morning glories (sniff). But if you look closely (and crop judiciously), there are still some pretty pictures to be captured:
|This potted chrysanthemum comes back every year|
|Apple Blossom geranium|
|One of the dahlias I managed to save|
We're in the pink at . . .
