Oregon flowers

Holyhock flowers next to a birdhouse

I share with you some photos of flowers that grow at this time of the year in Eastern Oregon. Some of them may be familiar to you, but others may not. These were taken over the past few weeks in different places, in front of houses, in yards, when I notice unusual or unfamiliar flowers, and record them on camera.

The growing season here is very short, and flowers usually bloom between June and August. Vegetables also are abundant at this time, but as soon as frost starts, usually by early September, everyone will be running to pick their tomatoes, zucchinis, string beans and other veggies they grow.
