Some choice crests

The white fluff isn't clouds but the white hair of other nearby crests!

Overlook Park message

On most mornings Lynn-Marie and I go over to Overlook Park and walk a mile before we go have our morning latte. The park overlooks downtown Portland and has a large playground, two baseball fields and a couple of soccer fields. A nice trail is about 1/3 of a mile long and there's some nice shrubbery and a fantastic, old, American Elm.
In addition, homeless people sometimes set up a makeshift tent or sleep under the shrubs. One morning, as we were walking, we noticed these bags next to one of the trash bins.
They'll probably never see this, but this serves as a "thank you" to the homeless couple who cleaned up the mess, including some discarded hypodermic needles, and giving notice to the park cleanup crew so they wouldn't get hurt.
It's a disgrace that, here in one of the most prosperous nations on earth, we have so many people just struggling to survive.
Back to plants in the next post! :)

An Assortment of Aloes

This is just a random photo from one of our two greenhouses showing an assortment of aloes and a Cotyledon.
