I had fun with this, doing some photo editing. This is a city view, taken from the tram in Portland. Mister G had an appointment that day. I will call it, Rainy Day Portland View. I am participating with others in week 7 of Festival of Leaves.
We took some time to venture out, to the Champooeg state park area. As the morning progressed the smoke increased, coming from a fire in Washington. Rain is in the forecast, so it will be helpful. I am participating for week 5 for Festival of Leaves.
I am glad to participate, in the challenge of capturing weekly Fall color, at Festival of Leaves.
I look forward to this challenge, and I so appreciate that Dawn Miller, is hosting Festival of Leaves once again. We are in the first few days of Fall. While walking in our neighborhood, I came across this plant. I don’t know what it is called, but the color combination appealed to me. I will be keeping my eyes peeled open, for this challenge.
Wrapping up Spring Festival week 12, with this beauty. I like the color combination. This spring has been different. With more rain and less watering at this time, and continued color popping up. It’s been wonderful!
The appearance of this vineyard has most likely changed since we drove by. It’s not a location that we drive to, very often. Although there are plenty of vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Joining Dawn Miller and others for Spring Festival week 4.
I am happy to join along on this Spring Festival 2022 challenge. Thank you Dawn Miller! Most of the photos I took today, were taken while on a morning drive out of town. It had been about a year since we were last in this location. This barn has a newer coat of paint. I am including the following image only because I had never see a Magnolia tree with yellow blossoms.
Moving on now and wrapping it up at Festival of Leaves. Thank you Dawn Miller for hosting, and helping us to focus on the beauty around us. I have found that during these challenging days, it is easy to become self absorbed. But observing wild life, and the change of season’s, have contributed to keeping my perspective in a healthier place.. Stay well, all of you leaf hunter’s..
