MORNING-LIGHT
Early morning and late evening light create my favorite views in the garden. When the angle of light is low the contrasts and shadows are strong and create images that are distinct and powerful.

WILD-GINGER-AT-THE-BEACH
I found these tiny glasses to match the Wild Ginger blooms for a sweet arrangement in my kitchen.

SUMMER-IS-HERE
Alleluia! Summer is here!

 

Azaleas and bleeding hearts are blooming along the pathway on the east side of my house. Two large chartreuse privet bushes are growing wildly behind the first arch and trimmed boxwood line the path on either side. A flagstone path and stone steps lead you down the hill and through four ivy arches to visit a giant elm tree that is a canopy for most of the back yard.

I love the blooms of spring and I love to bring the springtime inside with bouquets of these early blooms.

These branches of white blossoms are from wild plum trees that grow along the Willamette River; lovely souvenirs from my after lunch walk.
