Tree Farm | Bend, Oregon

"

As a property owner in the tranquil Tree Farm development, I have been working with Darrin Hollyman of Hollyman Design to design a home that captures the beauty of the neighborhood and surrounding forest. The vision in my mind becomes a reality when Darrin puts it on paper, with focus, detail and expertise. Whether we are collaborating through email, over the phone or in person while walking the lot at Tree Farm, I know that at that moment I have Darrin’s undivided attention and his wheels are turning to produce a home of upmost superiority within the existing environment.

Whether you have a mountain view or a forest view, the diverse and unique homesites at Tree Farm offer privacy and luxury in a beautiful forested setting, close enough to all Bend has to offer, yet far enough for tranquility. Darrin has proven to be one of the best in the business and the design of this Tree Farm home is sure to win accolades from his peers. —Homeowner


After choosing a lot in Bend’s North Rim community , I knew it was going to be extremely important to work with a Home Designer who would incorporate the terrain and natural beauty of Central Oregon and bring it indoors. After visiting the site with Darrin Hollyman of hollyman design, he immediately had ideas on room positioning to create a functional layout and outdoor living areas that follow the sun. Darrin has a collaborative approach, where he is open to all ideas and feedback. His knowledge of the building trades and all of the state of the art sustainable products made it easy to keep the house energy wise, and on budget! Make no mistake, the process of creating, designing and engineering a home can be a daunting exercise, but with Darrin’s expertise, it all came together perfectly. It is not by chance that COBA awarded him Designer of the Year in 2018. I would highly recommend Darrin for any project!”—Homeowner

Letter from the Editor WHAT IS THE HEART OF THE HOME? Some say it’s the kitchen—the place where meals are created to nourish us, the place where everyone seems to gather during a party. Others say the heart of the home is the hearth—a warm center around which we hunker on chilly nights. Perhaps the heart of the home is the living room or the outdoor patio, a collective place of comfort and relaxation. Of course, the true answer is that the heart of the home is the people who live in it. This year, as we’ve spent perhaps more time than usual at home, we’ve realized the true value of those with whom we share our days, and have felt ever-more grateful for the people in our homes and lives. But it’s also true that you have to put the people somewhere. You must feed the people, entertain the people, and provide the people with comfort and rest. That’s where home furnishing and design comes into play. We crave beauty, comfort and personality in our spaces. Sometimes, we just need a place to sit down. In our summer issue, we inspire you to make your home space a little more inviting. We focus on outdoor living—that rare pleasure of summer. Read about making the most of small outdoor spaces with an innovative touch and creative approach. Learn how to turn your patio into a classy entertainment space on par with the best happy hour purveyors in town. Use tech to grow a better garden, from keeping plants perfectly watered to preventing freeze and more. Install a bee hotel to help support plant-life and pollination. Read about cool accent walls by Bend business blended metal and wood. Learn about the pro interior design services offered by Bend Furniture and Design. Take a walking tour of outdoor public art in Bend’s downtown in our art feature. Get hungry reading about fresh baked pie from Oregon’s summer fruit harvest.

BECOMING A SIX-FIGURE CITY

The idea that Bend’s population has topped six figures has been thrown around for a bit now, but new Census estimates released this spring make it somewhat official—Bend is a city with more than 100,000 residents. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that in July 2019, the city was home to approximately 100,421 residents, the highest ever in Bend’s history and the first time the estimate has topped 100,000. The estimate is based on a 31 percent growth rate since 2010, according to the Census. In nearby Redmond, the population is thought to have climbed 24 percent since 2010, with the latest estimates for that city at 32,421 residents. Bend’s official population count, as determined by the 2020 Census, won’t be available until next summer, but based on the 2019 estimates, it’s likely Bend’s official total will exceed 100,000. Bend remains Oregon’s sixth largest city, behind Portland, Salem, Eugene, Hillsboro and Gresham.

Trail Permitting System To Launch in 2021

A new trail permitting system for Central Oregon’s national forests isn’t launching in 2020 as planned, but it’s still on the way. Though an initial plan called for a permit requirement in certain areas of the Deschutes and Willamette forests beginning in May, delays related to the COVID-19 pandemic pushed the date back a year, to May 2021. The new system aims to address overcrowding on popular trails, reduce trail

20

widening and littering and free up parking in popular areas within the Cascades. The system will apply to nineteen of the seventy-nine hiking trails and all overnight use within the Mount Jefferson, Mount Washington and Three Sisters wilderness areas. When the system does launch next year, the permits will be required starting the Friday before Memorial Day through the last Friday in September. Though the permits themselves will be free, expect a small recreation.gov. charge for each one. These permits will help regulate access to the beautiful mountain peaks within the Cascade Range, high alpine and wildflower meadows, lava flows, lakes, forests and more, for use hiking, backpacking and horseback riding. Learn more about the permitting system at fs.usda.gov.

New Hospice House for Partners in Care

Construction kicked off this spring on a new twelve-bed Hospice House for Partners In Care, an organization that has provided endof-life care in the area for nearly twenty years, all while having a facility half the size. Chief architect on the project is DKA Architecture

& Design, with JBattleson as landscape architect and SunWest Builders leading the construction that just began in May. Partners In Care anticipates moving into the new 14,600-square-foot building in late 2021 and then remodeling their existing building to provide for more clinical, administrative and community education space. These components, as well as the construction of a new parking lot, will cost an estimated $12 million. “The connection of the two buildings to the natural elements of the campus evokes a sense of tranquility and respite from the urban environment of Bend,” said CEO

Eric Alexander. “My vision was to create an urban oasis that reinforced the dignity of the patients and their families using the facility.” The spacious suites will accommodate patients in a homelike setting. While it is not residential living, families will be able to spend the night, gather in beautiful common areas or escape to private nooks to read or visit. Partners In Care is an independent nonprofit organization and Hospice House is the only facility of its kind in Oregon east of the Cascades. Over 200 staff and 150 volunteers care for hundreds of patients each day in their homes and care facilities.

DEVELOPMENT LIKELY ON STEVENS ROAD PARCEL The popularity of Central Oregon’s airport is taking off, with more than one million passengers passing through the Redmond air travel hub in 2019, double the number there were five years ago. With more flights being added and expanded facilities in the works, airport leaders are hoping the growth will propel the airport to go from fourth busiest in the state to the second busiest, behind only PDX in Portland. With new flights to San Diego and additional flights to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Salt Lake City being added in 2020, airport officials think passenger visits could outpace Eugene and Medford airports within a couple of years. Airline officials said this winter than 82 percent of Central Oregonians now fly out of Redmond instead of driving to Portland or another larger city.

RENDERING COURTESY WISHCAMPER DEVELOPMENT PARTNERS

240-unit Affordable Housing Complex Planned A development company out of Montana is planning to break ground this fall on a 240-unit housing complex of affordable rentals on Bend’s south end. Wishcamper Development Partners is developing the new complex, called Stillwater Crossing, and was able to secure a twenty-year property tax exemption in order to help keep the units affordable for renters. The company is also utilizing taxexempt bonds and low-income housing tax credits to fund the project, which will cost about $49 million. The apartments, which will be located near the intersection of the Bend Parkway and Pinebrook Boulevard, will be a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units. Estimated rent will be between $860 and $1,100 a month, and the rentals will be specifically for residents earning 60 percent or less of the area’s median income. Wishcamper, which also has a satellite office in Portland, is a national affordable housing development company. With construction starting in the fall, developers hope to have the project completed by April 2022.

REDMOND HOUSING PROJECT IN THE WORKS

If all goes as planned, a new project by Hayden Homes is poised to boost the housing supply in Redmond by 128 units in the next year. The company aims to break ground on Cinder Butte Village on the north end of Redmond by late fall. The project, planned for a 19.2 acre property near Tom McCall Elementary School, earned approval

from the Redmond City Council during a virtual meeting in late April. The development area at NW Tenth Street and NW Upas Avenue is primarily outside city limits, but Redmond plans to annex in the land after the housing is built. The development will include seventy-five single-family homes and fifty-three smaller, higher density cottage units, offering a mix of housing options for prospective buyers. Developers have said the new homes will be offered in line with average prices in Redmond. The first of the new homes could be available as early as next spring.

Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show Goes Virtual

Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show organizers announced in April that the forty-fifth annual show would go on, but in a modified virtual format that has attendees celebrating their appreciation of quilting from home and sharing on social media. Quilts will be displayed on the event website, organizers will still raffle off a show quilt (virtually) and there will online activities. “With this being our forty-fifth anniversary this year, we wanted to make sure that we celebrate—even if it is in a whole new way,” said Dawn Boyd, executive director of the show. The show typically includes hundreds of quilts, hung throughout Sisters and admired by locals and visitors alike. On July 11, the planned show day, The Stitchin’ Post in Sisters will hang twelve quilts outside the quilt shop in honor of the event’s first year, when just a dozen quilts were part of the show. Virtual attendees are encouraged to photograph their quilts outdoors and post them to social media along with their location, tagging the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. Businesses in Sisters are also invited to hang a quilt outside in honor of the show’s forty-fifth year. Find more details of the virtual event at soqs.org.

A HIGH-END NEIGHBORHOOD SETS A PRECEDENT FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT ON THE URBAN-WILDLAND INTERFACE WRITTEN BY BRONTE DOD

s Bend continues its rapid growth and urban development collides with wild land, one neighborhood offers an example of how to do it right. The Tree Farm sits just outside of Bend’s city limits on the west side. Bordered by Shevlin Park and U.S. Forest Service land, the neighborhood is known for its stunning architecture and the kind of view that can stop a person in their tracks. Bill Miller, of Miller Lumber, purchased the property in 1955. It was one of the first pieces of land to be logged in the area and remains a working tree farm today, although it hasn’t been logged since the 1990s. “My father was an environmentalist before it was trendy to be an environmentalist,” said Bill’s son Charley Miller. “When he died in 2001, we continued to manage the Tree Farm the way our parents would have.”

summer 2020

I BEND HOME + DESIGN

Land use planning began in 2014 when the Millers partnered with Brooks Resources and West Bend Property Company. The 500acre property was limited to fifty two-acre lots. “Our family’s desire was to cluster the lots,” Miller said. “The idea was that the remainder of the land could be enjoyed by the rest of the community as well.” That’s why the public can still access the Shevlin Park trails and views of the property that the Miller family has loved for decades. “It’s turned out just how we envisioned thanks to the help of our partners.” The development faced initial opposition by groups like Central Oregon LandWatch during the land use approval process. Concerns arose over safety and destruction over wildfire potential in the area, among other issues. The Bulletin wrote in a February 3, 2016 article that “Central Oregon LandWatch cited potential wildfire hazards and concerns about maintaining wildlife habitat in its prior opposition to the idea.” The neighborhood is also visible

on the upper trails of Shevlin Park, a popular walking and biking area that had provided a secluded atmosphere from the city. What could have been an ugly battle instead turned into an important conversation about sustainable and ethical future development that is inevitable for Central Oregon. “It worked out great actually, sitting down with Central Oregon LandWatch,” said Brooks Resources VP of Marketing Romy Mortenson. “We learned what

30

their concerns were, and worked together to make a better plan than what we had originally.” The Tree Farm was the first neighborhood development in Deschutes County to integrate guidelines from the National Fire Protection Association into the planning before any development took place, setting a precedent for inevitable future development and growth along Central Oregon’s wildland-urban interface. “There was a huge demand and interest in that kind of a property,” said Linda

Schmitz, a principal broker for Brooks Resources and the sales manager for the initial release of properties. “We reached out to the brokerage community and gave tours while the infrastructure phase of the project was still under construction.” It’s not surprising that the gentle slope of sagebrush, wildflowers, evergreen trees, mountain vistas and Shevlin Park in the backyard drew enough interest to sell out the properties by October 2017. The properties were initially sold between $370,000 to $907,000. Over the last year, only three homesites re-sold, with an average sales price of $591,250. There are currently eighteen completed homes, twelve under construction, and four designs in review, which all homes must go through to ensure continuity and meet the neighborhood’s guidelines. The 328 remaining acres of the Tree Farm were transferred to Bend Park & Recreation District to expand Shevlin Park in 2018. Charley Miller now lives on one of the lots in a house designed by Neil Huston that was completed in the summer of 2019. Miller said that his family wanted the neighborhood to have a diversity of architecture, similar to the range of styles in houses in downtown Bend where they grew up. There are guidelines and a review team to ensure continuity, but already there are a range of styles from mid-century to craftsman to lodge. The location—“you feel out of town, but you’re in town”—along with the park in the backyard and lack of light pollution have made it a great place to live. Mortenson said that she doesn’t expect much turnover in the neighborhood. Of the eighteen completed homes, none have changed ownership—a sign of a healthy neighborhood and people willing to stake roots in the land.

While furniture has long been the most visible part of Bend Furniture and Design, design services have always been an integral part of the approach. “Buying furniture is a big decision and a process which requires skill and attention to detail. We work with clients one-on-one to fully envision their spaces,” said Heather. The team uses computer aided design and story boards to help homeowners “see” the rooms of their home, with specific furniture in place. “Clients find these tools incredibly helpful with their decision making,” said John. The design process begins by meeting with the client. “It is here, we discover their lifestyle, interests, and their vision,” said Heather. A questionnaire helps guide this: are they active; do they have kids or pets; do they love to entertain? Next comes a conceptual process that includes what Bend Furniture and Design likes to call a “story board.” “The story board is an inspiration board, and a study in color, textures and finishes. You can see the exact piece of furniture layered in with imagery of the finishes and fabrics of the space,” said Heather.

Once decisions are made, the client relationship doesn’t end. The furniture is shipped to Bend Furniture and Design’s warehouse, where their own professional delivery team inspects the products, ensuring that each piece will meet clients’ expectations. ‘White Glove Delivery’ and expert assistance placing every piece in its perfect spot is the final step. “We offer individual service and attention, whether you’re looking for a single piece of furniture or furnishing an entire home,” said Heather. Between them, the team of seven has decades of home furnishing experience. “We collaborate, as a team along with the client, because the more creative synergy there is, the better the outcome for the client.” The lovely showroom on Galveston Avenue in Bend features all North American made furniture, including lines from several Oregon manufacturers. “The reward for sourcing this way is lasting quality and environmentally healthier and

more sustainable furniture,” said Heather. Over the years, the Cashmans have developed relationships with some of the top furniture manufacturers in the United States, including Copeland, Charleston Forge and American Leather. While high quality and top-notch service can be equated with expense, the Cashmans say they often hear from clients that they

are pleasantly surprised at how affordable Bend Furniture and Design is. “We offer an array of pricing options and along with the advantages of buying local and receiving personalized service, it is an exceptional value,” said John. Clients continue to seek out the Bend Furniture and Design team for personal, experienced advice when it comes to beautifying their homes. “More than ever, people are reinvesting in their homes,” said John. “They are focused on making their dwelling a comfortable and beautiful place of refuge.” “We’re interior designers as well as furniture experts,” explained Heather. “Our passion is building lasting relationships and enduring interiors.”

or twins Julie Hakala and Janet Powers, something just felt right about starting a business together after twenty-five years of living in different places. The duo had been working together from afar, both selling rustic barnwood for a Colorado company—Hakala out of a showroom in Tumalo and Powers back in the mountains of Colorado. Aspiring to do something different, the twins dreamed up their new venture, a company specializing in

custom, interior accent walls made of finished woods and metal. “We wanted to do something local and bring something new to market,” Hakala said. After Powers made the move from Colorado to Bend last summer, they got to work in her garage dreaming up the products for accent walls at their new company, blended. “After months of experimenting, we have fifteen custom colors of wood planks and tiles with five colors of metal inserts and planks to create endless possibilities for custom designs,” Powers said. Blended products are smooth, clean, custom-stained woods in colors like “Mt. Bachelor Frost’’ and “Deschutes River,” exclusively meant for inside spaces. The current colors are named after Central Oregon locales and come in a base shade or a metallic finish for a unique, subtle shine. Customers are invited to build their own accent wall in the blended showroom at 9th Street and Wilson Avenue in east Bend. They can play with two-foot planks of wood in a variety of colors, and two sizes of metal planks and inserts in brass, bronze, silver, black or pewter. Each item in the showroom has magnets attached, allowing for mixing and matching on large magnetic, DIY Design Walls. “We want to inspire people to get creative in a fun, comfortable environment,” Hakala said. This spring, the sisters started producing square and rectangle tiles, which also can be configured in a variety of arrangements to build a design. Every step of the blended

wood finishing process is completed by the twins in their production facility attached to the showroom. For those who prefer a more rustic look, blended offers rough, naturally-aged wood planks locally sourced and finished off-site. Powers added, “It’s amazing how great the modern woods and metals look combined with the rustic woods. Everything we have in our showroom is meant to work together—that’s how we came up with the name ‘blended.’ Notice the bold letters in our logo spell Bend, as everything is made in Bend and we are proud of that.” In addition to the hands-on studio, Hakala and Powers are also available for free design consultations, during which they visit a home or business and work with the client to design their dream wall or accent piece. The accent walls range in price from $7-10 per square foot, depending on the materials chosen. “It’s a great way to create art on

your wall without a huge commitment,” Powers said. Once a design is selected, the materials are delivered to a customer’s home, or can be picked up from the showroom. Nationwide orders can be placed online and customers from other states can receive free virtual design consultations and free shipping. Powers and Hakala have enjoyed the opportunity to work together on the new business, and said they’ve applied skills they learned as children, growing up working at their family’s hotel in Colorado. “We’ve really been influenced

by our family,” Powers said, explaining that the twins are among five sisters, who all worked together when they were younger. “We learned about hard work, the value of family time, keeping life fun and the importance of making customer service a priority,” Hakala said. One sister, Sarah Lickfett, is selling for blended in the Reno, Nevada, region. The duo also draws inspiration from their faith, and displays this in the showroom with the letters “DV,” meaning Deo Volente, or “God willing,” in Latin. Since starting blended metal and wood in the fall and opening their showroom in January, the duo said their typical customer base is a mix of architects, designers, builders and DIY-ers. To see a recent install at a location near the showroom, stop by the Luderman Crossing model home by Pahlisch Homes, and then visit Powers and Hakala to try a blend on the DIY design walls. The sisters are excited to grow their business here in Central Oregon and to assist new customers with unique designs of any size and for any budget. With lead times of only one to two weeks, customers can have finished projects by mid-summer. blended metal and wood blendedmetalandwood.com 541-668-4708

HOW TO LIVE BIG IN SMALL OUTDOOR SPACES

hen it comes to space, we don’t always have as much as we might like. Do you live in a tight housing development, condo, apartment or ADU and yearn for outdoor space of your own? Whether your dwelling includes a backyard, balcony, deck, patio or front porch, a few simple steps can transform your outdoor space into a well-loved, go-to place imprinted with your own DNA. First ask yourself, what do you hope to achieve? A place for chilling? Entertaining guests or barbecues with the family? A play area for the kids? Once you’ve established the purpose, you’ll want a plan. Decide whether you’ll need the help of a design professional or prefer a DIY approach by gathering ideas from sites on the internet like Houzz or Pinterest, going on home tours or seeing how others have created their own outdoor living space. You’ll discover that good design ideas are surprisingly similar whether your space is large or small. It’s a matter of scale.

STEAL IDEAS FROM THE INDOORS

One enduring idea is to replicate your favorite indoor room, whether it’s the living room, dining room or even the bedroom. Consider traffic patterns and arrange furniture on an outdoor area rug around a patio coffee table or facing a firepit or artwork. Or set up an eating bar with stools and a buffet for food and drinks, cutlery and serving platters. If your space is a covered porch, why not consider a futon for both sleeping and enjoying your morning coffee upon waking? If your space doesn’t allow for a grouping of furniture, a bench or a couple of chairs and a small side table will suffice. Add a freestanding umbrella or hang a colorful sunshade overhead for protection against the elements. Other spacesaving outdoor escapes include gazebos and leafy arbors. In any arrangement, remember to incorporate lighting— candles, LED light strings, non-breakable lamps and even hardwired sconces and overhead fixtures. Think about storage for brooms, step ladders, garden tools and other things you’d like to have handy. Seek out furniture that can double as storage.

PLAN FOR MOTHER NATURE’S WHIMS

The obvious difference between inside and outside living is weather. On Central Oregon’s high desert, think of your outdoor space in terms of three seasons. Spend time learning about durable materials for our climate. Wrought iron and aluminum are safe bets for tables, synthetic woven wicker for chairs. Teak and cedar are traditional choices for outdoor furniture but require more upkeep. One relative newcomer to the outdoor furniture scene is recycled plastic—look for Adirondack and smaller chairs in vibrant colors that never fade, are strong and last for decades with minimal care. For temperature swings, buy portable or overhead fans for hot weather and heat lamps for cooler days and nights.

45


DESIGN TRENDS

PLEASURE IN THE DETAILS

Once your basics are in place, consider the many options for enhancing enjoyment. INCORPORATE GREENERY If you have ground space, even a small patch of lawn is a good choice for the kids and dogs, plus it keeps dust at bay and your outdoor space green. The downside is it requires upkeep. If you have a blank wall or a place to add a screen, consider a vertical living wall. Here’s one place it’s worth the expense to hire a professional. Plants in a vertical garden should be selected with care— they need a water source but can become a favorite feature throughout the seasons. Planter boxes and pots add a pop of color to Central Oregon’s earthy palette. Put them on wheels and place them out of the way in corners. Incorporate shrubs, trees, perennials and herb gardens as space allows. BIRDS, BEES, WINDCHIMES AND GURGLING WATER Get hours of enjoyment from watching hummingbirds chase each other around a feeder or install a bird bath and watch them flick water off their feathers. When the wind blows, as it often does in Central Oregon, chimes create music for the soul. Plant a butterfly garden or perennials that attract big beautiful bumble bees. One of the most calming aspects of your outdoor space can be a water feature. The types of features available for home gardens are nearly limitless, from waterfalls that spill over a permanent rock formation to a portable yet elegant ceramic fountain.

46

FIND THE FIRE Firepits have become insanely popular— they create warmth, light and a place to gather. Portable firepits the size of a carry-on bag can cast a long glow over the tiniest space. A table-top firepit can double as an eating area. And don’t dismiss the possibility of a fireplace. You can find a custom or prefabricated version to fit a small space that will throw off living room-like warmth and atmosphere.

REMEMBER THE ART Enhance your retreat with art. Consider free-standing sculpture or wall art, traditional or abstract, in metal, glass or other materials. Let your imagination roll and infuse your private place with your own aesthetic. With the housing world trending toward compact living and smaller homes, expand that space into the outdoors we all crave.

HOW TO ACHIEVE THE HAPPY HOUR ATMOSPHERE AT HOME WRITTEN BY TERESA RISTOW

DESIGN TRENDS

A

fter a long day of work, or working from home, the summer sun beckons us outside to unwind and relax. There’s hardly a better way to end a day than with an outdoor setup that makes summer cocktails, chilled white wines and frosty beers as easy as ever to serve up for yourself or guests of honor. When picturing your outdoor happy hour hub, first decide whether to go big with a full kitchen and barbecue setup, or aim small with a standalone bar cart, party lights or fun dining table accents. Regardless of scale, adding some backyard bar dÊcor will make an evening on the patio as lively and fun as one at your favorite Central Oregon watering hole.

DECORATIVE DETAILS

When it comes to serving up food and drinks outside, ditch the throw-away goods and instead opt for reusable plates, cups and utensils like bamboo plates, reusable plastic wine tumblers and colorful serving bowls. Liven up the table with napkins and coasters in bright, summer-inspired colors, woven placemats using organic materials or by relocating a vibrant potted plant to the center of the table. With small touches and minimal effort, the atmosphere can be easily enlivened.

GIVE IT A SHOT

Not sure how to turn your patio or backyard into a welcoming space for drinks and entertaining? Start small with a stylish drink tray and ice bucket. Drink trays with handles allow a host to bring out a pitcher or several beverages at once, to offer choices or refills to guests. The tray can also carry extra items like coasters, napkins or a charcuterie board and keep everything together in one tidy spot on the patio table. Super insulated buckets like those from Corkcicle are big enough to stash a couple bottles of wine or several beers and the ice can stay cold for as long as 48 hours.

Drink Trays

Use a stylish tray to load up on drinks and snacks, cutting down trips inside for refills.

Unique Art

Use fun art pieces like sculptures and vases to spark new cocktail hour conversations.

LIGHT THE NIGHT

Nightfall always seems to come by surprise, so be prepared to keep the fun going with decorative lights to keep your outdoor spaces inviting. Black Edison-style string lights can be strung along fences and walls, or through the air from the roof. Try a set of large lanterns or a trio of candles on the table to keep all areas bright. Opt for a big citronella jar candle to keep the mosquitos away from everyone without having to break out the bug spray.

56

Ready to go all out? A full backyard bar setup could include a fridge and sink built into a permanent structure, with a roof to provide shade. Construction and design can be as elaborate as any room in the house, or a simpler structure might use corrugated metal and wood, without full plumbing and electricity. Once the structure is set, build upon the outdoor bar space with stools or chairs for sitting at the bar, a circle of patio chairs around a firepit nearby or a rattan or wicker couch and coffee table for lounging once you have a drink. Park yourself behind the bar for the night to act as host or hostess, or designate friends to trade off mixing drinks. When it comes to creating space for entertaining outside your home, the goal is to fashion a fun and inviting atmosphere, where people enjoy themselves and hosting is easy. Happy hour at home is less expensive than ordering out, so go ahead and justify the extra touches to make your outdoor space as fun and refreshing as you want.

eing a green thumb in the garden used to mean possessing a talent for cultivating plants, built through experience or natural aptitude. But in tech-savvy 2020, anyone can become a modern green thumb, aided by a variety of gadgets, apps and electronics to support your outdoor plots. Worried you might forget to cover your plants during a late-season Central Oregon frost? There’s an app to prevent that. Not sure if your plants are being appropriately watered during a rainy summer in Bend? There’s a tool that can help you check. Want to know whether it was a deer or a rock chuck scurrying through the yard last night? There’s a garden camera for that. While nothing can decisively replace your intuition or trusty copy of Farmers’ Almanac, there are dozens of high-tech gardening tools out there to help. Here are few we recommend for fine-tuning your green thumb.

PLANT IDENTIFICATION APPS

PictureThis

While you can probably remember the names of most of the plants you have in your garden, plant identification smartphone apps like PictureThis and PlantSnap also can do this with a quick photograph. The apps can identify a beautiful flower you see in a neighbor’s yard, a plant at the park or foliage you see on an out of town vacation. And the apps are good for more than telling you the name of greenery. Snap photos of brown, dry or diseased leaves and the app automatically identifies what the problem is. Not sure how to care for some of your plant’s unique needs? Learn care tips, network with horticulture specialists and build your own collection of plants within the app.

EYES ON THE GARDEN

While there’s no shortage of home security camera options out there today, garden-specific cameras can offer tools like night-vision to spy overnight visitors, activity alerts and time-lapse video to literally watch the garden grow. When choosing the camera that’s right for you, consider the best spot to position it—likely somewhere with a wide view of the garden—and then consider whether a camera that runs on WiFi or cellular data makes sense for the location. Once your options are narrowed down, pick a camera that fits into your budget and get recording. Most cameras use an app to connect to your phone, so you can view your garden from just about anywhere.

Helping the Bees

ach summer, many Central Oregonians plant and tend to butterfly gardens to attract beautiful butterflies to their yards. Yet there’s another backyard insect that, while often misunderstood, also can provide countless hours of entertainment in addition to helping pollinate plants. These are the bees, which often receive a bad rap, because they can sting. But Oregon State University Assistant Professor Andony Melathopoulos, a bee pollination expert, said most bees are not at all aggressive. And, he said bees could really use a helping hand from backyard gardeners to help them survive. One way everyday gardeners can do their part is to create a hotel—that is, a bee hotel. “We have at least 900 bee species in the Pacific Northwest, with about 500 species native to Oregon,” said Melathopoulos. “Honeybees, which live in hives, are just one species. But 90 percent of bees live in hotels, which can be structures as simple as hollowed out reeds, or holes in the ground or an old log.”

summer 2020

I BEND HOME + DESIGN

These bee hotel spaces are typically found in nature, but as mankind encroaches and builds on more wild lands, bees are being displaced. Many are exposed to viruses and parasites that can wipe out whole bee populations. Melathopoulos says we need to care about the fate of bees, because all bees are vital as pollinators—one out of every three pieces of food we eat is dependent on these pollinators. Building a bee hotel is simple and can be as easy as using scrap wood or getting some old branches and drilling hotels in them. “The reason the bees need little holes or ‘rooms,’ is because each egg the female lays will be put into a separate cavity and then sealed with mud, resin or leaves, depending on the type of bee,” explained Melathopoulos, who said the mother bee will die off before she sees her offspring. “The bee will emerge from the hotel room or this cocoon in about a month, and the cycle starts all over again. People will be astounded when they slow down and pay attention to these bees in their hotels.” In one bee hotel, backyard gardeners

may find several varieties of bee species. The bees all get along, taking rooms that are vacant and going about their business. Melathopoulos does caution that after the bees hatch or emerge from their rooms, you may want to clean the rooms or start new hotel rooms because viruses and parasites left behind in the rooms might endanger the next generation of bees. Worried about inviting bees to share your backyard? Don’t be, Melathopoulos said. He points to several examples

66

of bee hotels on the Oregon State University campus, and stresses the bees are very docile and don’t swarm or sting visitors to campus. Bee populations have been declining globally. The United Nations National Assembly declared May 20 as World Bee Day to raise awareness of how important bees are for the world’s food supply. By its estimation, bees and other pollinating insects have a global economic value of about $150 billion. Interestingly, scientists have found the recent world-wide shutdown because of COVID-19 has resulted in a beneficial environmental impact for bees, including a reduction in air pollution and degradation on natural bee hotels and habitat. As the world begins opening up, bee conservationists, like Melathopoulos, say helping our bees survive will be critical.

fter the winter months, the arrival of spring with its abundance of strawberries is a sweet entrance to the changing season—and the beginning of fresh fruit pie baking season. Next up are the cherries, appearing in midJune and sticking around for a month or so of deliciousness. By August, the stone fruit season has arrived, and peaches are a-plenty. Which will you bake into a pie this summer? All three, of course.

Strawberry Is there anything better than the sharp sweetness of the first spring strawberry? Oregon is the #4 growing region for strawberries in the United States, with only California, Florida and North Carolina producing a larger crop each year. The delicate fruit was made for the Willamette Valley, which offers the perfect combination of fertile alluvial soil and pristine mountain water. Many Oregon strawberries have been grown on family farms for generations. These delicious berries first appear in mid-May, last through July, and come in several varietals. All you need to know is every one is delicious—especially in a pie.

Peach

Peaches are native to China, which remains the top producer today. But Oregon does a fine job of growing this tasty fruit too. Come August, head to your favorite farm stand and grab a bushel of this fruit with perfect velvety fuzz-covered skin, bright yellowy orange flesh, and juicy flavor. Peach trees typically take about three years to begin producing fruit, and some of the farms in the Willamette Valley planted orchards in the 1970s or earlier. The best peachproducing trees, however, are under twenty years old, and farmers often replant orchards with fresh trees to keep fruit production at its best. Five types of peaches are commonly found in the Willamette Valley: veteran peaches, red haven peaches, blazing star peaches, star fire peaches and vivid peaches. Red havens are a great choice for baking. Slice, bake, eat, yum.

Cherry

The unassuming tart cherry has been around since the beginning of time, traveling to Oregon via circumnavigation of the globe. From its beginnings in Asia, the cherry made its way to Europe and was brought to the New World in the 1600s, working across the U.S. slowly but surely to the West Coast. Tart cherries like mild, dry climates, and the Willamette Valley’s favorable weather does just fine. The reasonably short harvest season, from mid-June to mid-July, is your chance to jump on the cherry wagon and get them while they are fresh and sweet. Cherries just might make the prettiest pies, with the rich dark red color calling out for a bite.

his spring, COVID-19 shuttered downtown galleries. While many of these businesses are reopening this summer, the warm season is also the perfect time to appreciate just how very many pieces of art are around us outdoors every day. Grab a map from VisitBend and take a lap around downtown to experience the abundance of public, outdoor art. The back alleys may be the most artistic part of downtown Bend. Or maybe they aren’t. If you don’t mind the view of the back side of businesses with recycling and trash cans lining the street, a treat awaits your eyes. Between Oregon and Franklin Avenues, art flourishes in the form of murals, weather-proof paintings and multimedia pieces. Plaques tell about each piece in the the Tin Pan Alley Art Collection. Local photographer Carol Sternkopf presents a blue owl in a storybook page format. She pulls together photographic collage, vinyl, paint, twigs, wood, metal and salvaged home décor to engage viewers with, “What’s this owl up to, anyway?” Bend pioneer and ski legend Emil Nordeen got a 21st century brushing by contemporary Bend artist Sheila Dunn, known for large vibrant portraits and figure paintings. Nordeen was a Swedish immigrant who moved to Bend in 1920 along with other Scandinavian mill workers. To commemorate his cross-country ski races between Fort Klamath and Crater Lake and other accomplishments, the Nordeen Shelter was named for him. Experience two pieces in the covered walkway between Wall and Brooks Streets. A painting by Bend’s first creative laureate, Jason Graham, aka MOsley WOtta, explores “the four seasons

in relation to the four directions in relation to the four core archetypes: warrior, teacher, healer, visionary.” In contrast with the intensity of MOWO’s piece, Bend’s Sweet Pea Cole portrays a girl and dog frolicking in a landscape filled with bubbles. The girl in the painting is opening her pocket, “letting loose her innermost ideas and feelings…letting them mingle with the world around her,” the plaque states. This quirky piece is part of a large collection of Cole’s graphic design and illustration body of work. At the east end of Minnesota Avenue is a fountain and the sculpture of two large bronze cranes, “Dancing for Flossie,” by Danae Bennett Miller, installed in 2003. With a home studio in Tumalo, she takes inspiration from farm animals and wildlife. Her bronze sculptures pepper the Central Oregon landscape in roundabouts and other public and private places. Wander through the city’s iconic Drake Park where you’ll find a large, abstract sculpture on the south end near the take-out spot for river floaters. The 1991 stainless-steel sculpture, “Cascade Landscape,” by Portland artist Bruce West was originally installed at Kenwood School but roundabout construction required its removal and relocation to a new home. One local calls it “cocktail ice without scotch.”

Bend’s iconic and most photographed sculpture is probably “Art,” the nickname given the man seated on a bench staring into his empty wallet. The life-size cast-aluminum sculpture was created by Seattle artist Richard Beyer and placed at the corner of Wall Street and Franklin in 1982. He’s rarely alone. In addition to the ducks who keep him eternal company, Art loves posing with people who sit with him, stuff all manner of things into his wallet, wrap their arms around his shoulders or dress him in everything from Santa hats to lingerie.
