A few reasons why I love Oregon summers

Oregon berries are beautiful, and tasty.

Tonight we relaxed in the garden and watched the hummingbirds feed incessantly from the bee balm.

We have Medditarianian summers here: the rain stops for three months and it's just so incredibly gorgeous, gorgeous enough to grow things like lavender.

It's 9:00 pm and AdRi is mowing the backyard: the light stays light until late here in the summers: magical.

The coast is warm enough to give you a sunburn, but not so hot to force you into the frigid sea--unless you want to.

The summers make me remember the things I love the most, like this beautiful and wonderful woman.

Every day I feel so fortunate/grateful to be able to live in Oregon. It's just an insanely beautiful state, with so much to discover.

Fantastic shot of the lavender field!

Also, that's a terrific photo of you and AdRi!

P.S. Will we still be feeling the same way about Oregon tomorrow when the temp hits 98 degrees?
