Dusk over Timothy Lake

As I mentioned in yesterdays post, we have been enjoying Timothy Lake a bit this summer. This was dusk over the lake on Saturday night, just as we were packing up to leave after a day in the sun.

Dahlias for Days!

This past Sunday I traveled to the small town of Canby, OR and visited the Swan Island Dahlia Farm. I had never been before. It is amazing! The rows and rows of gorgeous dahlias are an awesome sight. There are so many varieties! There is a big dahlia festival which starts in two weeks or so, but I wanted to go early to beat the crowds, and I am glad that I did because I practically had the fields to myself.

Lichen on a Tombstone

I am really into strolling around old cemeteries. My mom is too, and she brought me up to appreciate the interesting history and beauty that cemeteries have to offer. We visited a really old Oregon cemetery yesterday, and walked through, hunting for the oldest grave or biggest family plot. I had my camera with me, of course, and snapped this photo of some orangey yellow lichen peeling off the top of one of the old tombstones.
