From a dusty crinkled old photo to the most beautiful professionally framed portrait, every

photograph has a story. These images are considered to be some of our most valuable treasures

and to us, they are “never just a photograph”.

Around My Yard: In April

As the saying goes, "April showers, bring May flowers", but not here in Oregon this year.  It's been a beautiful April, with just enough rain to keep everything green and pretty.  I love the assortment of flowers that have begun to blossom, the baby animals that are running around with their mommy's and daddy's, and the many variety of birds singing in the trees.  I'm thankful for God's gift of nature.
 

 This fawn is pure cuteness!
