Outdoor person?

What do you think of when you hear "outdoor person"?

Some big buff lumberjack with a tree ax swung over his shoulder and one hand on his hip. Ole Blue by his side?

Maybe a blurred image of a speeding helmeted bike riding triathaloner....

Do you picture rocks and harnesses, the delicate balance of steep ascent. Climber vs mountain?

Are you on a river with a paddle breezing down a wild river......

Well....think again!

At this time of year in Oregon its all about the garden. Outdoor person takes on new meaning, and I spend as much time outside puttering in my 10x20 piece of paradise that I can. I hang with birds, butterflies, bees and the chicks. Occasionally a lawnmower or the infernal leaf blower intrudes but on the whole, it is peace that surrounds me in my garden.

One of my favorites, refreshing invigorating Spicy Chai, a blend of lovely vanilla, sweet caramel, cinnamon,with an underlining of Ylang Ylang, Cyclamen, Lily of the Valley, Musk, Myrrh and gentle fruit notes which bring relaxation - a sense of euphoria and rejuvenation.

My weeds

My year I bought some little starts from the grower's market I think she said they were wildflowers,

Well every year they throw their seeds and I get these big 3ft floral bushes for free!!

Gardeners helper, the definitive gardening soap, loaded with deodorizing scrubbing baking soda, lavish amounts of coconut oil for massive amounts of lather, and the yummy Cinnamon banana muffin fragrance that you crave after a day of getting your fingers dirty.

found online:

and locally in Medford Oregon.
