Lovely grasses. I recall as a child in Ohio being able to walk through tall grass like this. No can do in Arkansas:-(
Kay: :-( I've not been to Arkansas yet, Sherri, but I plan to one day. I am sure I would like it there...your pictures are wonderful.

Make the best of it Kay - I'm trying to over here!
Kay: I am, Chris! It's finally starting to cool down here. After 10 record days of 90 degree temps, it's about time smile

Sooo green
Kay: Yes it is up here. When I moved here 3 years ago, it almost overwhelmed me. Having lived in Arizona for before that (3 years as welI), it was amazing how much green I saw around here. I still feel that way.
It's long overdue but I've just reviewed your entire archive, Kay. You have some lovely work in there and I'm still keen to see Oregon through your eyes. We still haven't been yet.

It's heartening to see that Oregon has it's fair share of sunny days, though, because I think it generally has a bad press weatherwise, as do we.

Having said that, the weather we've had over the last couple of weeks has done nothing to dispel the myth that it always rains here.
Kay: I hope the sun comes out soon for you, Colin. This year we've seen the longest stretch of temps over 90 degrees - and broke several longstanding records. It's now starting to cool down, and so I'm sure the rains will not be far behind.

I love Oregon. I wish I could stay here forever, but I will probably be relocating to Austin, Texas eventually. My significant other lives there, and being apart is getting a little tiresome.
THe warmth and the rains have produced a lush covering, kay.
Kay: Yes they have, Alan. The grass is probably yellow now, with the heat wave that hit recently. I'm sure that will change with the rains.

Beautiful Kay.
Kay: Thank you, Graham.
I bet this smells lovely when it is newly mown Kay.
Kay: I bet it does too, Brian! I'm grateful that I'm not the one to do it too!
Lovely perspective of this beautiful country scene. Great summer shot of these trees and tall grasses.
Kay: Thank you, sir John.

Kay, I like how you're going green. wink Lots of green I see... simple, breezy and summery. Makes me want to quit work for the day and go lay outside.
Kay: smile Hi Mia, the only reason I'm going green, is because I live in the middle of it. Wait until next year...I'm sure there will be a lot of green, but mixed with browns. I'm moving to the Austin area, and so it will be a lot of different scenery. I'm trying to see if I can keep a residence here so I can come back and visit.
lovely lighting and comp Kaysmile
Kay: Thank you, Tim smile

It reminds me of an orchard of some kind, Kay, and that brings back wonderful memories of my youth in Michigan.
Kay: It is an orchard, Ginnie, you've got that right. I am not sure what kind...could be olives??? Although I took a lot of horticulture classes in my youth, the name escapes me. Glad I could bring back some wonderful memories for you!

Looks like the fruits have been picked. It's an orchard, right?
Kay: Yep, you are right, Marie. It is definitely an orchard. Reminds me of California's central valley, so full of'em. Hope you and your family are doing well. All my best to you.
I expect to see some wild cat prowling through the grass.
Kay: That would have been great, Michael. And I would have snapped it's picture, for sure.
