We've had so many birds enjoying the garden lately...particularly the sunflowers and the grapes.
Often I will open the back door and step outside, only to find a dozen or more quail quickly scampering away. One day I grabbed my camera and snuck outside quietly so I could get a few photographs.

The past several years I have grown scarlet runner beans at my house. Every single year I am amazed at how quickly they grow and how beautiful each stage is. The other bonus is that they attract hummingbirds.

Even though we are in mid-October, there is still so much happening in the garden. We are expecting our first freeze this week and I'm sad to face saying goodbye to the dahlias, cosmos and zinnias which all still have buds blooms. I've been making so many bouquets - for myself and for others - to try to use up and enjoy as many flowers as possible.
Recently my girls and I dressed up and went out for "girls night out"...it was so much fun.
We've also been treated to some pretty spectacular views of Mt. Hood lately. One on a hike and the other was the setting of our most recent gig.

Last fall a friend of mine gave me several dahlia tubers from her garden. I decided to turn this spot into my new dahlia garden. Last summer this was a sunflower and pumpkin patch.
