People often say of Oregon, "It's so green". In fact, much of the Eastern and Southeastern part of the state is arid or semi-arid. In contrast, some areas of the coast are so wet that they are classified by geographers as temperate rain forests. The above picture, taken this past weekend in the Cascades just west of Bend, Oregon for Think Green Thursday, offers you a bouquet of young fir boughs, some columbine ( I think), spread above a carpet of primarily wood sorrel. It show a luscious world, cool, fragrant, abundant with life and pleasing to the eye and heart on a summer's day.
