Ahhhh Vacation

A blogging hiatus was taken while we enjoyed the flowers, family and friends of the Pacific Northwest. Here are a few pictures.

Aunt Susan in the beautifully sculpted garden of her friend's house at her 40th wedding anniversary.

The Columbine and Indian Paintbrush were in bloom in Three Sister's Wilderness. Here's a few examples of where we were and what we saw.

After the hike we headed with Josh and Joanie to the Willamette Valley and the Columbia River Gorge for a food and wine weekend. Here's their take on Blackberries. And a picture of scones:

If you ever happen to be in Corvallis/Philomath, OR when they are having a wine dinner, check out Gathering Together Farm, an organic farm that believes in sustainable agriculture. If you click on the wine dinner's area and scroll down to the 8/11 dinner you can see pictures of our dinner and the menu. MMMMMM!

Ok, more tomorrow, I may still be on west coast time, but I'm tired!!!
