This garden was huge (as was the house), with multiple fountains, a dry creek, a rose garden, and a cute furry little canine greeter. I think I could live in their garage and be perfectly happy.
Please click on the thumbnails below to see them larger. Sorry there’s so many, but there was a lot to see. Thanks to all the people who participated in the garden tour. It’s always a fun event to attend.
I took a ton of photos at this location, and had a really tough time narrowing them down. I didn’t do a very good job, since I ended up posting fifty of them below. Whoops. Click on the thumbnails to see them larger.
Tomorrow I’ll post the photos from the final garden I attended. Stay tuned.
Today is part two of the photos I took on Sunday’s Santiam Heritage Foundation 14th Annual Garden Tour (see also: the Brown House).
This house on W. Kathy St. had the most color-coordinated flowers I’ve ever seen. i didn’t realize it until I started going through the photos I took, but everything seemed to be purple/pink or white. The yard was beautiful, with pathways, a deck, a waterfall fountain, and lots of flowers.
Click on the thumbnails below to see the photos. Tomorrow, I’ll post photos from another garden.
Yesterday was the Santiam Heritage Foundation 14th Annual Garden Tour. I attended as many of the gardens I could (3 out of six, plus the Brown House), and will post the photos from each location over the next handful of days — one day for each place.
Today’s is the home base, and the reason for the garden tour — the Charles & Martha Brown House. This nifty old house — built near the beginning of the last century — is currently being renovated so the community can use it for events. The tour is an annual fundraising effort to help aid in the restoration.
Visit the Brown House’s web site for more information.
Click on the various thumbnails below to see them larger. I had to edit these on a rather small laptop screen, so I hope they look okay.
Tomorrow will be the first garden, so I hope you’ll come back then.
The Stayton Fire Department did a Fill The Boot fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association yesterday on the corner of 1st Ave. and Washington St. They raised at least $5000, which is awesome. Firefighters are awesome. The people who donated are awesome.
I took a bunch of photos, so peruse the thumbnails below and click on them to see them larger. All of them are captioned, and may even be somewhat accurate, but no promises.
Yesterday was the 2013 Discover Local Business Expo, formerly known as the Santiam Marketplace & Outdoor Show, held at the Stayton Middle School. There were a lot of booths to be seen, stuff to do, and things to be purchased.
I went out of my way to actually talk to people and asked them if I could take their pictures. Yes, friends, there are people in a lot of the photos. Be shocked, be amazed. It may not happen again.
Click on each thumbnail below to see them larger, or just click on one, then use the arrow buttons to navigate through the rest of them. All are captioned to provide a little bit about whatever is in each photo.
Thanks to everyone who agreed to let me take their pictures. I appreciate it.
Here’s the second part of the photos I took at the ribbon cutting ceremony and grand opening of the new tower at the hospital on 10th Ave. (see also: part 1). These photos cover the second (maternity and patient rooms) and third (ICU and patient rooms) floors.
All the photos below are captioned, so click on them to see them larger and read whatever it is I wrote about each of them.
Note: I took some photos out the windows from the upper floors and will post those at a later date.
Guest photographer Marilee Darby took a trip up to Milwaukie to the new Portland Aquarium. I love day trips. It’s good to go outside your comfort zone once in a while, even here on the site. Especially when it means we get to see neat photos of neat animals.
Click on each thumbnail below to see the larger photos, and visit the Portland Aquarium web site for more info. Thanks a bunch, Marilee!
I popped by D’Tail Pet Grooming (visit them on Facebook) near the west end of Washington St. the other day, and took pictures of adorable animals. The cat is Milo, the official shop cat. The rest of the photos are of dogs — some belonging to the owner, Theresa Smith, and the rest belong to clients.
Thanks to Theresa for letting me take pictures at her shop once again.
