Hedge Blindweed Morning Glories, Lovely Flowers and More! (+5 insets)

Hedge Blindweed Morning Glories, Lovely Flowers and More! (+5 insets) 

(+5 insets!) (full-size is dreamy!) :)

I haven't had much time to write so here's another entry from my trip file!

Oh, the Joy of a Window-Filled Trailer!
As I type, I'm glancing out at the campsite next to us. I am lounging on my perfect little bed, custom-made to fit the twin-sized space in my perfect little room. (My bed sits on a custom-made bed frame, complete with three huge drawers for storage, made beautifully by Steve!) This bed sits in a nook that is entirely filled with windows! Two tall, narrow ones on either end and a bisected, full size window on the long side! Every window in our coach is darkened so that in the daytime, people can't see in but we have a marvelous view outside. I am seated about five feet off the ground so it's like an eagle's nest! The floor of the entire coach is much higher than our old Grey Wolf trailer and we can't get over the awesomeness of the great views we have. To be honest, one of the (many) selling points of this trailer were all of the windows! The entire dining and kitchen area are completely filled with windows, with exception for the back wall where the stove/oven, coffee counter and refrigerator reside. The hallway leading up the three stairs to the master bedroom has a tall narrow window and there's also a window in the outer door. The master bedroom has a large one on one wall and the head of the bed there are a pair of tall narrow windows on each side. Even the bathroom has light streaming in through the skylight!

The overall effect of this beautifully lit coach is cheery and inviting, an expansive space that's totally comfortable and homey. What an opposite to the Grey Wolf. No matter how many lights we added to that tin can cave, there was no way to make it feel homey and truly nice. It really was a "weekender" trailer and when we finally admitted defeat, one of the things on our "Won't Sacrifice" list was Lots of Windows! Our Avalanche is a dream come true!

Yeah, But What About All That Light in the Morning?!
You might wonder how we get any sleep when the light begins to tinge the sky at o-dark-hundred every day. Well, every window also has its own black-out blind and they work perfectly! Paired with tinted windows, it could be high noon out in the desert and still dark as a tomb inside! To be honest, some light does come in but it's totally negligible. The litmus test is our little parrot, Pumpkin. If it's getting light and she awakens, she begins a non-stop series of darling little peeps to say good morning, letting us know it's time to start the day. However, with these blackout blinds, the coach is dark until we say so…hurray!

Today's Pictures
I got lots of really neat pictures when we were at Humbug Mountain State Park, and my main picture is a favorite! These flowers are about 4" in diameter and simply glow in the morning light so I was delighted when I was able to get a worthy capture. I am also including an inset that shows a pair of these pretty flowers, as well as a meadow filled with Cat Ear flowers, and a Hedge Blindweed vine (an invasive flower in the morning glory family but not a true Morning Glory, which is in the ipomena genus) wrapped around a blackberry cane. Finally, the opening bud of a Queen Anne's Lace couldn't be passed up--they are just magnificent--and last but not least, a Cat Ear plant with webs all over it! :) (I found an interesting, short, and picture-filled page about this plant and similar ones here: Invasive Vine Weeds
for those who are curious!)

This morning is lovely and sunny and we are hoping to drive down to the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area and then go agate rock hunting on the beach! Wish us luck! Sending my *virtual* hugs and love your way!

Explored on 7/19/20; highest placement #4.

Marvelous photos, Janet. Love them all but the main photo steals the show. The light and exposure are exquisite. Not really a nice plant but who can resist those wonderful white flowers. The photos tell me you're having a great time as does your wonderful commentary.

On another note the kids gave Nancy a Lortone rock tumbler for her birthday yesterday. It's at home so she hasn't seen it yet but she is so excited. Actually I can't wait until she has it and can try it. A few more day and we'll be home again and then it's tumbling time.

A beautiful series Janet - I like them all very much................it's often difficult to get the exposure right on white flowers but you've nailed it perfectly!

I especially like the field of yellow and green in the second PiP.........your focus and depth of field is just spot-on! My other fave is the image in the last PiP...........the light and detail is fantastic!

Your trailer sounds like a real "home-away-from-home" I'm glad that you all seem to have settled in nicely. You're obviously very relaxed and in a much better frame of mind than you were a few short weeks ago! Take care :-)

What an incredible series of pictures here, Janet. Even the one with all those cobwebs all over it!!Yikes. I just couldn't get close to that!!! I have some white bindweed like the one you've shown us here. It is very invasive, but oh so pretty never the less.
