Summer In Portland

Summer is our favorite season when we’re in Oregon, and for good reason. The farmers’ market is overflowing with fresh produce, the sun is out and the weather is warm and lovely.  Steven and I spend many evenings on the deck, eating fresh, locally grown produce, drinking fine wines and listening to the birds that live in the surrounding woods.  Every year I try to create a small container garden devoted to the hummingbirds and usually we have a family or two that are regular visitors.  This year is no exception and although I got the plants in late, we now have a peaceful and colorful deck on which to enjoy our evening meals.skj_30624
