Remember When...

Mountains were covered with snow and wildflowers laid dormant under a thick, white frozen blanket?
Moss had an icy frosting on it and spearmint was just an inch or so high?
Raindrops danced merrily upon the planks of wooden decks?
Fog and clouds laid upon mountain peaks and dwelt among the trees there?

And apples wore hats of snow while robins gathered nearby?

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven" Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV
Summer blessings everyone-stay cool!
Paradise area, Mt Rainier in May
(well known for its summer wildflowers)
NW native moss & spearmint in February
(spearmint is much, much taller now and the orange mint has blossoms)
Deck during rain showers
(much drier now and loaded with plants needing watering)
Columbia River Gorge area
(actually this was taken recently but it looks this way in more autumn like/wintry weather too)
Apples during winter
(no apples on our heirloom apple trees this year but the Liberty apples are just about the right size now; still green though)

Aimee! Your writing is so beautiful...thanks for stopping by on my BLOGAVERSARY and leaving your sweet comments. All of your garden photos look so wonderful, apricots especially! It was nice to revisit your winter photos, too! We have not had a very warm summer here, and I've heard you have had so much heat up there!
