From brown and hot to green and cool!



Hi Bloggers!  Since my last "desert" post about leaving Las Vegas, I have spent a few days in Oregon visiting family.  Oregon is such a lovely state, it's so green!   I just can't stop taking photographs, I guess because it's so different from where I live.  



The photos in this post are from Bend, Oregon, some of which are from my sweet, mother in law's garden.  



This is the view from her front porch.  I could sit out there all day and take in the scent of the pine and the fresh air! 


Beautiful, unique garden stores and shopping in Bend.

Bend is also known for their great "brew" 


The pine trees smell wonderful here!

Next, I hope you'll come back for the "wetter" side of Oregon, the Willamette Valley.

I hope all is well with you!  I really need to get caught up on reading blogs! 
All my best, 
Becca
