Bloomin' in Oregon

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
I am loving it in OR

and the flowers do too!

We went to the market yesterday where I spent about an hour and a half tasting all kinds of different fruits. Along the way I stopped every so often to snap pictures of the gorgeous flowers that could be found in abundance. The picture of the red and yellow lily above is actually in my parents' yard. What gorgeous color!

I have filled my bedroom here in Oregon with lavendar, hydrangeas, and peonies. It smells absolutely heavenly. I spent time this afternoon reading a book on a swing in my parents' yard while the smell of wild jasmine wafted across the yard from time to time. The Lord God is surely creative. These pictures are just a small sampling of what I have seen. I hope you enjoy the beauty of Oregon as much as I am!

"The desert and the parched land will be glad;
The wilderness will rejoice and blossom.
Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom;
It will rejoice greatly and shout for joy.
The glory of Lebanon will be given to it,
The splendor of Carmel and Sharon;

They will see the glory of the LORD,
the splendor of our God."

Isaiah 35:1-2

I'm new to HOCC and have just been added to the blogroll.

I started to peruse your blog and had to stop and tell you something. I love Oregon.

I was in Tualtin on business a few years back. I visited Multnomah Falls then went on to Hood River and rode an excursion train to Parkdale. The next day I went to Tillamook. There I visited the Creamery and the Airplane museum then drove up and down the coast stopping at the light houses. It was fantastic.

You can visit me at Big White Hat. Be sure to look over the "Best of" catagory.
