Today's sunny weather brought out a bunch of blooms in my garden that have really lifted my spirits. Halfway through February and everything's starting to come back to life. Here are a few of the friendly faces that caught my eye today.
I'm a native Oregonian who, up until recently, has been reporting on local issues in Portland, Forest Grove and currently Corvallis. I am now an editor of an internal publication at a local university, making the transition from the newsroom to world of academia. I continue to write, photograph and explore the world of podcasting in my work, and am eager to explore my new opportunities.
