A Summer Drive in Oregon's Countryside

Yesterday's adventures brought us to three different farms...
on one farm these sunny flowers caught my eye--
there's just something about sunflowers at this time of the year! 
Along with sunflowers, squash and huge red begonias
these pastel colored hollyhocks looked amazing under the summer sky:) 
Ah! Pink--glorious, wonderful pink! 
We passed fields of hops (some now harvested),
and more.
We passed this beautiful field of black eyed Susans too.
It was a great way to spend an August day!
And, to make things even better, my friend took me for a ride on a little river ferry:)
 Nothing like the view from a ferry's deck on a warm, summer day!

So happy that you guys were able to enjoy some girl-blogger-craftswomen time together! I was just thinking today about a good time to get out your way:)

Loving the hollyhocks. My mom used to grow them. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. The Christian Renewal Center by Silver Falls is still there and I will be going there soon! Have a great day and it's been awhile since I've visited your blog.
