weekend day 1


What a great weekend.  We got up early Saturday morning and drove to Silverton, had a warm and cozy breakfast at O'Brien's, and then checked out the grounds of The Oregon Garden.  Their weekend harvest festival was not open until 1, so we decided to just wander around a bit.  It was surprisingly cold, but we were loving it and the flowers still in bloom there.  Next we drove back to Salem and hit E.Z. Orchards' HarvestFest.  We came home with their own cider and mulling spices and some beautiful pumpkins.  Fall is the best - the crisp air, the orange and golden colors, and wonderfully-scented everything - I love it and don't want it to end!  Why can't fall last as long as winter seems around here?
