This will be a short one, all made up of photos for your viewing pleasure–a relief for us on the U.S. West Coast experiencing foul air and energy-sucking heat. A few days before the SECOND malevolent heat wave hit Oregon, I got out for photos on a sweet, tepid morning when the A.Q.I was Good. So, here are some garden denizens of July and August.
I’ve posted my favorites here, but for more garden prettiness, visit my website jill zeller. (I blame the brevity of this post on hyperthermia and hypoxia, particularly at night when both interfere with my sleep.)
BTW, the garter snake, bull frogs (2 summering in the pond), Bullock’s orioles, spotted towhee, lesser AND American goldfinches thrive, because I keep stumbling out there to refill the bird baths.
