leaves like feathers
went for a walk at the hoyt arboretum this weekend. one thing that still amazes me about portland is the vibrant color that lasts all year long. we even saw roses still in bloom! and this big patch of amazing, huge mushrooms. a few were knocked over so i made sure to take advantage.
one secret about the northwest is that yes, it rains frequently but it rarely rains all day long (it's sunny out right now), and when it does rain it's more like a drizzle. plus otherwise how would it stay so lush and green through the winter? mmm i love it here.
