1st snail spotting of the year

The other day, James asked about banana slugs. I have not seen any banana slugs yet this year, but I will be sure to post a pic when I do. However, I did spot these little guys slowly crusing across the walkway the other day. First snails I have seen this spring.

Happy May Day!!!

View from my childhood home

Five years ago today was the last time I visited my childhood home up in Welches OR (which is at the base of Mt Hood, about an hr east of Gresham). My dad had sold the house, and I made it a point to go up with my camera to take photos of some of the things I remembered the most. This was the view from our front room window.

Quick, before its gone!!!

The beautiful flowering bushes behind my house opened up when I was at work last week. I remembered from last year that the flowers only last a few days. So I had to take this picture at dusk when I got home. I knew I was going to be too busy this weekend to actually get a good daytime shot. I am glad I at least got this one, because sure enough, many of the petals have fallen off the bush. (PS) Does anyone know what kind of flower this is? I am not sure of the name of the bush...
