On a hot summer's day ....
.... IF you can't find a cool canopy of green trees to stand under while you gaze at the clear blue sky,
...And IF you live in downtown Eugene, you could walk, bike, or take the bus to the Whitaker Neighborhood and grab a cold one and some lunch at Ninkasi or Hop Valley or one of several other craft breweries in the area. A cool way to cool down.
OR maybe you'd rather be like these homeowners and embrace your inner fire with a sunny floral display. Seen on our way to McDowell Falls (here), I think this was the brightest summeriest yard we've ever seen -- and one of those picture ops seen out of the car window that forced me to ask Bill to turn the car around.
