Exclusively for the Chanticleer Garden...

[caption id="attachment_2494" align="alignright" width="300" caption="Only the best for the Chanticleer Garden!"]Manure for the Chanticleer Garden[/caption]

The unending quest for the best ways to amend soil and feed plants in the Chanticleer garden has taken 'au naturel' organic to a new level.

Some friends bring a bottle of wine, some might bring flowers, but truly thoughtful friends consider what is most important to a hostess, those friends, of course, bring cow manure for the Chanticleer garden!

Exclusively for the Chanticleer garden, meticulously gathered, carefully packaged and labeled, and specially delivered from the lush green Roseburg, Oregon pastures. Just the thing to warm the cockles of a gardener's heart!

"That's No Bull!"

My favorite Oregon Wildflowers Hike at Grizzly Peak

First time I've been to Grizzly Peak this early in the year, only a few are starting to bloom: Trillium, Klamath Fawn Lilies, Fritillaria pudica, and Lomatium. After the most recent late-spring snow melts, there will be more Oregon wildflowers to see! I can barely wait to get back to my favorite hiking trail.

Camelot Theater: “1776”, 6/20 thru 7/22/12

Posted by:Ellen | Posted on: May 20th, 2012 | 0 Comments

1776 June 20 - July 22

Book by Peter Stone, Music and Lyrics by Sherman Edwards, based on a concept by Sherman Edwards

The seminal event in American history blazes to vivid life in this most unconventional of Broadway hits. It's the summer of 1776, and the nation is ready to declare independence, if only our founding fathers can agree to do it! Follow John Adams of Massachusetts, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson of Virginia as they attempt to convince the members of the second Continental Congress to vote for independence by signing the Declaration of Independence. 1776 puts a human face on the pages of history as we see the men behind the national icons: proud, frightened, uncertain, irritable, charming, often petty and ultimately noble figures determined to do the right thing for our fledgling nation.
