Liking Brownsville

Yesterday we ventured out to the community of Brownsville, Or. I have posted on it once before, but now we are getting a bit more acquainted with it. I am liking it more each time we visit as it just has that special old-timey¬† feel to it. There was a plant sale going on and they will begin their Farmer’s Market this month. Brownsville got some popularity from the movie Stand By Me, because it was filmed there.Besides the plant sale there was a community event called Carriage Me Back to 1900. From what I heard it was a joint effort of community individuals dressed in period clothing and carriage rides were offered to the public. We did not know that it was taking place until we got to Brownsville and saw people dressed up. I was able to capture some of it.I love observing a community that pulls together to provide wholesome activities for families and all people in general. The following are photos that I took while we were on our way out-of-town. I was in the passenger seat and so it was impromptu, but I was thrilled to be able to take in what I did with my camera.

The timing was perfect for me as we drove by and this dancer came out in character to do her part for her audience, as they rode by in the carriage. Rough photography but I think captured the essence of the moment.

Bike in Bloom

DSC_0104I love discovering vintage bicycles like this one to photograph.. Bikes are one of my favorite subjects along with benches, windows, doors, old buildings, anything quirky and rust is a must, in my opinion. And then there are flowers, trees, birds and bees. And so much more. We are a blessed people to have so much beauty and interesting sights to see each day.

No Business Like Bee Beesiness

This morning I noticed that the Bees are about their business and especially like this unidentified plant. We do not know what it is called, but it certainly is popular in our garden.

There are only certain locations that the wildflowers such as Lupine grow in our area. It’s sporadic. It grows more abundantly up the road from us.

Everyday is an adventure in gardening as we never know what we will discover.

Our Rhododendron is looking quite flashy in her best attire and she doesn’t fail to impress us with her beauty..

I am breathing in and breathing out..

All is well in my world..

The Road Less Traveled

We made our first run to Big Bear, yesterday to our favorite nursery, Hunter’s… Being that it is about forty miles away, we don’t go very often.
