Textures

Photo by Micki Da Re
You might note that the title description for this blog is not only about tea knitting but about nature inspiring design.

Before I moved to the Pacific Northwest I was dreaming about the wonderful plant life I would find here. In the Northeast, the cold of winter limits the variety of plants you can grown. Don't get me wrong, the variety back there is still amazing, but give it warmer temps and lots of rain and...

The trees here are enormous. The plants, greener than green. The ground covered with blankets of foliage. So, a little break from the fiber action to post some recent forest and park pics from my outings. Enjoy.

Please tell Micki what a wonderful photographer she is! I love these photos. They really capture the intensity of the colors around what I'm assuming is the Gorge or somewhere similar. At any rate, being from the same part of the country as you, I feel the same way about the plants in the NW. The vibrancy makes me really happy.

Micki took the first half (Edgefield in Troutdale) and I took the second half. The water/forest pics are taken in McClay Park just down the street in Forest Park! Amazing place and so close!
