Pam Yocum of Organic Ceramic Designs (www.pamelayocum.com) and I are bringing our pottery to the upcoming Trillium Festival at Tryon Creek State Natural Area in Portland, Oregon. There will be artists, crafters, a native and hardy plant sale, garden art show, food and coffee vendors, guided hikes for kids and adults. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days (9 a.m. Saturday for members).

It should be a fun weekend to celebrate spring and gardeningĀ in western Oregon!

A friend and I visited a beach south of Lincoln City to look for agates at low tide. What we stumbled upon was even more interesting: fossils! Here are some pics:

Might be a turtle ... might be a rock ... the waves will tell us eventually.

Spiral shell impression, about 3 inches in diameter. I really want to press clay into this next time.

Another spiral shell impression. How nice would that look in clay?

Another spiral fossil. How gorgeous would this be in clay?

Fossil shell. I really need a fossil book.
