MY VINTAGE (and I use that term endearingly) laptop is trying to update downloads or upload down-dates or download updates or something and is taking way to freaking long and sucking way too much power. So rather than, in frustration, throwing it at the window and scaring my kitties, not to mention making a tremendous, expensive mess, I'm going to go ahead and publish this uncharacteristically short post with the photos I have already uploaded.
|This drive-by really caught my eye. I love how the Angel's Fishing Rods (Dierama)|
do their thing above the pool of low-growing plants.
|A few weeks ago when my hubby and I were anniversary-traveling, we took a side trip to Alsea Falls.|
But first we passed this interesting place.
It reminds me of the Beverly Hillbillies, Beverly Hills)
|Alsea Falls is really tucked away in the boonies. Here is a shot of the tranquil river.|
|And here is the falls. Even after a summer with very little rain it is|
just breathtaking. Notice all the bedrock surrounding it.
|Here is a shot looking down from the top of the falls. Again, notice all the bedrock.|
Wouldn't it be relaxing to bring a blanket and book and sit here all day?
|Tucked in to a little nook we noticed a few Mimulus guttatus flowering sweetly.|
I'm not sure if you remember but awhile back I mentioned that we dismantled our (dangerously) rotting deck. We've since had a cement patio poured that looks great. The redux is still in process but when it's finished, I'll have a bunch of befores and afters to show. And a creepy critter I found while working in one of the adjoining garden beds. Or I might save those photos for Halloween since they're ultra creepy. For now, just be warned. (Wink.)
