Waking up to 34 degrees and frost across the landscape
There is a saying in Wallowa County, Oregon, that there is not a single month where it has not snowed. That statement is true! And the same goes for frost.
Hence, we take are careful about what we grow in our yards and when we set our annuals outside.
Freezing temperatures even during the summer months is absolutely normal.

Regarding my writing: "As a grandchild of post-war Europe (ethnic ancestry Bohemian/Austrian/German) and former Army spouse, I have lived and visited many places across the globe. Wallowa County, Oregon, has been my home since 2002. I am the daughter of a mom whose country violently vanished post-WWII. Her family was forcefully removed from Bohemia in 1946 when she was only six years young and sent to West Germany in cattle wagons. Her life story has tremendously impacted my own and formed my views on humanity and, at times, the lack thereof.
My formal college education is in the nursing field and psychology, which finds itself in my work as a writer and photographer. I am a humanitarian by heart and soul." ~Angelika Ursula Dietrich
