Of Wildflowers, Wetland & Food!

Summer ended in the PNW awhile back and now we are just waiting for the calendar to say it is truly autumn! But before I am willing to say farewell to summer on this blog, I want to create some posts for places we visited this summer!
Want to join us?

The first place we'll visit today is on the central Oregon coast--and it just so happens to be a wonderful place to eat (yes, the theme today is FOOD--since I haven't eaten since yesterday)!
But besides great food (you'll see my plate in a few)...I love this place because of the decor--inside and out, the wetland in the back---great for birdwatching from the sunroom where we ate--to the profusion of wildflowers--everywhere!
Come let's explore....
The garden is SO incredible that it was--in large part--the reason I wanted a wildflower garden at my home! Of course, I have a ways to go before I get anywhere close to the garden the owner has created here:) A very long ways!

Did I mention that the name of this wonderful eatery is The Wildflower Grill?
Even the name makes me think of beauty, peace and summery weather!

These are California poppies--they are one of my favorites (mom's too)!
I never get enough of them-along roadsides, in gardens...

And how about this delicate pink? It is so romantic looking...


And my favorite flower (or at least in my top ten from last year) crocosmia!
I WILL never get tired of them:)
I waited so eagerly for mine to emerge this year and
I intend to celebrate every moment of them till the changing weather puts them to sleep for another year:)
Hum, wonder where I put the photos of the wetland behind the restaurant....
oh well take my word for it, it's wonderful too!
And now--before I grab a quick bite myself...
the wonderful French Toast with blueberries that I ordered.
So incredibly yummy!

It makes me wish I was there right now!

If you want to see some photos of this area on the Oregon coast please feel free to check out the posts under "coastal areas". Enjoy!
Blessings always,
Photos: all taken at the Wildflower Grill this summer.
Loved the cute decor inside too but have to find those photos:)
TY to the wonderful staff at the grill for giving me permission to post these photos on my blog. As per the usual--I am in no way associated with them, just a happy customer wanting to share a great experience!
