About me

The picture is a star thistle I found growing in the bottom of a canyon next to a dry riverbed in the middle of the high Oregon Desert. Sagebrush, rattlesnake and scorpion country. You have to respect a plant that will grow and bloom under those conditions.
I live in Eastern Washington State, U.S. (Zone 5b, to minus 15 degrees) My yard is simple, mostly perennials and shrubs. The weather here is unpredictable, spring doesn't come til mid-May.
