Sharing the Passion……..

for gardening, for flowers, for the results of months, if not years, of effort. One of the things I so enjoy is living in a neighborhood with folks that want to share, with humility, their gardens and the results. Bouquets are carried up and down the street as gifts, individual blooms are displayed. Even the other night an elderly Italian lady brought a large hibiscus bloom that had fallen to the ground to our house because she found it pretty and hoped we would too. Some are true Master Gardeners, others like me putz about doing our best, studying and planning to do better next year. All agree the cycle is changing. One can sense it in the air. Some plan for next year with optimism. Some, I imagine, pray they will be here next Spring for yet another round. A bit somber today…those little, old ladies do that to me.

Fly fishing: Anticipation in the Fall

The Chinook are staged in the bays and tidewaters on the coast waiting for the freshets, the early Fall rains, that will cool the water temps, raise the levels, create that draw that pulls the large fish upriver to spawn. The large rainbows are enjoying the drop in overnight temps in the Central Oregon lakes. The feeding will accelerate in the weeks ahead. I intend to search out the mammoth Chinook Salmon and the big ‘bows in the weeks ahead. The preparation of gear is part of the fun. Moving down the ancient checklist from years of planning and many mistakes along the way helps in prepping for the outings.

The photo ops may be awesome along the way: water, rocks, vegetation, mountains, horizons, trees and big fish may combine for awesome memories. Life’s clock ticks and I must grab these moments now with less ‘maybe next time’.
