In Oregon There Are Farms

On a gray day in May we went to play.

Daddy was at work.  Baby had slept through our usual Baby Storytime show at the local library.  The afternoon stretched uneventfully before us.

And then I remembered...

In Oregon there are farms.

Not much in season yet for the buying, although last year's harvest is a gift that keeps on giving.  And local meat, fresh for the table.

Meanwhile, the strawberry fields were fierce with greens and bright white flowers.  In another'll be a different story.

Until then, flowers for sale.

Have you ever seen a fuchsia plant?  The flowers look like teeny tiny fairy dresses.

Geraniums as far as the eye can see.

We petted (patted?  putted?) ponies, and I fed them feed. 

Baby was a bit young for that.  Maybe next month.  Or year.

I picked a fight with a rooster.

And a turkey.

Actually, they started it.

Apart from pissing off the poultry, we just sat and enjoyed the view.

Lucky enough to be exploring between rain storms.

That was our day.  It was gray.  And it happened to be May.

I wish we had some farms closer to where I live in Vancouver. I've been looking high and low for a farm that sells free range chickens and eggs. We were planning on going to Oregon for a bit in the summer too. I heard there are tons of food carts there! I imagine I won't be able to eat much from the carts, but you never know! The rest of the family will eat well! I really enjoyed this little tour around Oregon. Nice pics! thanks for showing us around!

It reminds me of the farms while growing up. I have fond memories of the time I spent there with my parents and brother.
