A walk with the Grandson to the South Santiam River

We live a short walk from the South Santiam River and
Cooper wanted to walk there last Monday
He's hard to keep up with!!!
He is quite the poser!!!
This is a great river to catch Steelhead and Salmon in!!

I found these beautiful little flowers growing
in the rocks!!

The fish ladder!!
Time to head home

King of the Rocks!!!

I had to throw in my Peony that is just starting to bloom. This
plant was here when we purchased the home, 31 years ago!!
  1. The peony is a flowering plant in the genus Paeonia, the only genus in the family Paeoniaceae. They are native to Asia, Southern Europe and Western North America. Boundaries between species are not clear and estimates of the number of species range from 25 [2] to 40.[3]
    Most are herbaceous perennial plants 0.5–1.5 metres (1.6–4.9 ft) tall, but some resemble trees 1.5–3 metres (4.9–9.8 ft) tall. They have compound, deeply lobed leaves and large, often fragrant, flowers, ranging from red to white or yellow, in late spring and early summer.
Take care friends, Enjoy the Earth and talk to you soon!!! Martha
