There is this little creek that we always pass by and never stop by. Well, we were determined to check it out today! It was actually far more beautiful and expected.
I see that autumn is definitely here — make me a little sad. Which makes me wonder it is is no longer my favorite season…
We went out for a little hike. Morning rain made fresh afternoon air.
Spring has always been my least favorite of seasons but I have been making effort to take short walks on regular basis lately and have come to appreciate the season’s ephemeralness of vibrant colors in nature and warmer tint of sunlight.
Huge magnolia tree in the neighborhood. I never noticed how beautiful magnolia trees were until just a few years ago when I suddenly found myself in awe of their magnificence.
Spring came early this year, it seems. So early that I haven’t even had a chance to look forward to it!
As we drove passed this little pond near our home, it suddenly occurred to me that in about 10 months or so of living here, I have not once felt that Portland was too inconveniently far away. When I was a teenager, I honestly thought I was a city-person — how wrong I was! …And how so long it took me to realize that.
How cute is this little orchard?
Fog, mist and sprinkling of rain pretty much sums up the weather everyday these days. But beneath the whiteness, the greens remain surprisingly vibrant during winter days.
The mist hovered prettily over the water but the deserted picnic area was seriously creepy.
Damp rock surrounded by moss glistening in the morning fog diffused sunlight.
Just an ordinary trip to the grocery store is rather extraordinary with such magnificent clouds in the sky.
Also, I started a knitting project. A simple, functional sort of scarf — I actually need one.
