Oregon City's hidden treasures

You know we walk around our town a LOT.
We go around the college, down to the river, around the historic homes and shops.

Stanzie loves to see the sights and maybe sight a squirrel or two :D

We see pretty flowers. Even on cold winter days.

Today, we spotted another sign eating tree.
Here's one side...

Here is the other side....

You might remember this tree, that we spotted a few months back.

Another 'NEW' find today. A 25' tall decaying section of a fir tree, made into some kind of pencil sculpture.

....and more winter blooms. There was a hummingbird in there, but mom was not quick enough with the camera.

Did you see anything odd today?

  4. Holy God those trees are amazing! They don't eat dogs do they? I always wondered where pencils came from. Now I know.

  7. Hey Wyatt!
    Wow, those trees are neat and even a little scary! Love that pencil tree...do you suppose it was going to write a letter? I can't believe you got a hummer already! That's a sure sign of Spring.

  8. Thank you for your kind words about Hoover and Gianni.
    It will last for a long time before I have handled this disaster.

    I will slowly return to the bloggers world. The many kind words to Hoover's death, from all over the world have helped me a lot.

  18. Hi, Wyatt! I think those tree-eating signs are pretty cool! I'm going to have to look for some around here...all I've seen is a tree-eating fence.

  25. Wow those were really strange sign eating trees. Never saw anything like them before. That pencil tree is pretty odd too. Looks like Portland has a good sense of humor.

  29. that must be some new version of a 'pencil pine' ! We loved the sign eating tree's - it is good for trees to wreak a little revenge every now and again.

  34. Dear friends,

    Sorry for not dropping in awhile :) I've been busy working (helping mom) thus kind of forgot to update my blog.

    I might not be able to post as often as before so please head over to my newest post and leave a comment so I could add you on mom's new site. With this we could still keep in contact and it'll easier for me to drop by often to your page :)

    Love,
    Autumn & Jasmine

  37. I love how you termed the signs as "sign eating trees" -- very funny! I'm going to take a look in my new city to see if I can find signs as quirky as the ones in your city!
