Hi! I saw your comment on Cold Antler Farm and thought I'd drop in to say hi to a fellow Washingtonian. Feel free to drop me an email if you'd like to chat!

well gee, I was actually trying to find a red/white poka dotted mushroom and ended up being blessed by your trip. May I use some of the adorable photos as renderings for watercolor? Your photos are full of love and makes me want more and more to move closer to my mom who lives in Oregon, I live in Florida. Thanks for sharing you! Have a great day! Tracy
