No matter the weather, we will walk!
Down on the banks of the Willamette River, spring approaches...
Pussy willow buds
Oregon Grape blossom
The last of the Rose hips.
A hummingbird staked out this planting as worth defending.
The first native shrub to bloom each spring - the Osoberry (or Indian Plum).
Back at my place, no sign of Osoberry blooms as of yet..
Instead raindrops on fir needles...
...and frosty mornings.
