Our friends have ten acres of property near Seaside, Oregon. About half is "native" and our friend Jan has spent a good amount of time creating a pretty garden of the areas close to the house. The rest is open field. Aside from visiting with friends, I like just wandering with my camera and taking pictures of anything that catches my eye. Here are some things I saw this weekend.
These are alder trees.
These little berries looked like miniature apples. They were only about the size of a thimble.
There's lots of old rusting discarded junk around. When it's cropped just right, it makes for an interesting shot. I can almost see an art quilt in this one.
It was a little too warm to think about a fire on Friday evening, but perfect for it on Saturday.
Today I'm unpacking what's left in the camper...not too much. Also, I'm catching up with housework and I'll finally get to plant the echinacea plants I grew from seeds this year. Since they haven't bloomed, I'm wondering how they'll fare this winter. There's also watering to do. At the top of my list of priorities for the day is sewing the sleeve and label onto the Quilting Snowladies and tracing out the next block for the Bee-utiful quilt. So...lots to do, and hopefully, enough time. But only if I get going right now.
