We've been "summering it up" this season. We've enjoyed some camping, some surfing (read wallowing around in the ocean), and we'd been talking about giving stand up paddleboarding a try for some time. So we did. You know how you see people doing it? It looks pretty easy. I figured "how hard can it be?" I found out. It's quite a workout. To exhibit good form, you don't just paddle with your arms, it's more of a lever-from-the-waist action. Wendy, our fantastic instructor said "think of it as doing a thousand crunches today” -- easy for her to say. Once we got the feel of it though, it was great fun. It's nice to be "out there" with the birds above and the fish below. We paddled around just south of the Sellwood Bridge in Portland. Nice, glassy water, no boats, no problem. After

a while, I started thinking I had it mastered and attempted to take off from shore pushing my board like a giant skateboard. Not a good idea. You can't really see it in the above photo, but one of us is soaking wet. My tip: if you think you might not want to buy a new phone, leave it in the car. Which I did - whew. Every once in a while, I think we've been publishing Willamette Living Magazine for nigh on 7 years now, what happens when we run out of stuff to write about?" You'd think that would be a thing, right? Well, every time I start to think that, it's just like taking an econ class in college. The more you do it, the more you realize how much you don't know. It's really kind of surprising. In this state, with it's small population, and

huge amount of "wild areas." There is just an endless number of great things to do in the summer! Oregon's State Parks are fabulous, the beaches are idyllic and uncrowded, the hills are alive with the sound of music. OK, maybe that's kind of an exaggeration, but you get the drift. I heartily encourage you all to get out and squeeze every last bit of fun out of summer. And as always, thanks for reading our magazine.

Marisa on Health

Back to School Nutrition for Busy Families By Marisa Michael


ack-to-school means trading those lazy days of summer for schedules and responsibilities. Often time feels short, and good nutrition suffers. Here are some tips to get you through the transition.

Make breakfast a priority. Research shows that kids do better in school if they’ve had breakfast. Their bodies and brains need fuel from a morning meal to perform their best. Here’s how to overcome breakfast barriers: •

No time? Wake up a little earlier, or prepare breakfast the night before. Set out non-perishable items like cereal, bread, and fruit. You can make a batch of steel-cut oats each week, then microwave individual portions each morning. Make boiled eggs in advance. Have yogurt cups on hand.

Not hungry in the morning? Jump-start your day with a small glass of orange juice, piece of toast, or a half cup of yogurt. An hour later, eat a little more to make a complete meal.

Don’t like breakfast foods? Breakfast doesn’t have to mean just cereal. A sandwich, rice bowl, or lean meat with cheese and fruit will do the trick.

Pack a healthy lunch. Involve your kids in the meal planning and packing. They will be more likely to eat it if they can participate. Teach them good sanitation practices, like washing hands before they start. Include a lean protein with lunch, such as string cheese, boiled egg, yogurt, peanut or almond butter, hummus, tuna or chicken, nuts, and low-sodium lunch meats. Add in fruits and vegetables, such as apples, bananas, oranges, grapes, baby carrots, celery sticks, berries, and mini bell peppers. Round it out with a whole grain, such as mini-bagels, pitas, bread, or crackers. Make it easy. Use single-serve products, such as trail mix packs, applesauce cups, string cheese, fruit leather, boxed raisins, and packets of baby carrots and apple slices. Take your kids grocery shopping with you—let them select what they will like and eat, with your nutritional guidance. Making your kids in charge of their own lunch will save you time, enable them to learn good food choices, and reduce food waste. Have your kids pack lunch the night before to avoid the morning rush. Having a good nutrition strategy will make back-to-school a positive experience, and set your children up for good nutrition skills for the rest of their lives.

Potluck in the Park

About Potluck In The Park Potluck has been serving a free hot meal to anyone in need since 1991. Rain or shine, 52 weeks a year, we provide a hot meal, every Sunday, at O’Bryant Square in downtown Portland. Four hundred to six hundred Portlanders do not go hungry on Sunday because of Potluck in the Park. It is only because of the generosity of volunteers and donations from people like you that our Potluck community continues to provide a meal to those in need. Since 1991 Potluck in the Park has been a volunteer driven, grass roots, tax exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with no paid staff or office location. Our entire budget has gone directly to the people

who need it, people who otherwise might not receive a meal. We have accomplished our mission of providing nutritious food and an atmosphere of community to anyone in need because of you and others like you. In 2012 we served over 30,000 guests. Each of the servers for Potluck in the Park is a volunteer, many of whom represent area schools, service organizations, or churches. Food donated by individuals, businesses, organizations and religious institutions of all faiths is supplemented by donations gathered on a weekly basis from area grocers, wholesalers, hotels, restaurant owners and caterers. Some of our community partners include the

YWCA, Loaves and Fishes Centers, The Meals on Wheels People, Volunteers of America, and the Association of Catering and Event Professionals (A.C.E.P.) Holidays are a special time for families. Each Christmas Day, our Potluck in the Park family serves a full dinner with turkey and all the trimmings to 1000+ people at the Downtown YWCA. Local musicians, including Tom Grant, play for our guests. Cell phones are provided so contact can be made with family and friends. Stockings with goodies are handed out, and Santa is there for pictures to help create that feeling of holiday and family for all of our guests.

To carry out our mission, Potluck in the Park needs dollars. While much of our food is donated, additional items must be purchased. Other operating expenses include funds for dishes and utensils, serving equipment, maintenance, gas and insurance for the Potluck truck, cleaning supplies, printing and postage.

ah, it’s August, the vacation month. Truly warm, summer weather is finally here. All I want to do is relax and play. Back to school September is just around the corner. Even though I’m not in school, there’s just something about September that makes me feel that I have to get back to being serious, back to work. As long as it’s August, though, I’m going to savor every moment, follow every butterfly and soak up every drop of sunshine I can. There’s a lot to do in my landscape this year. Things have grown so much and the level of shade and sun has shifted because of it. We have a bed to redo and we’re still talking about eliminating

the lawn in the front. If it doesn’t go away, it needs to be reseeded. Since I don’t intend to work in my garden in August, I’m planning out what to do this fall. Late September and October are great months to plant trees and shrubs. Plants experience less transplant shock. You can take advantage of fall and winter rains to do some of the watering for you. The roots get a head start and the plant grows better in the spring. By spring I’m going to forget what a jungle my landscape is in August and I’m going to want to plant more than I should. Also, fall is the time to select and plant spring-flowering bulbs like tulips, daffodils and crocus. And I love their beautiful, cheery blooms.

Before I plan a fall attack, I’ve got to get prepared for vacation. We haven’t updated our drip irrigation system in a few years. Of course we waited until the very last minute to make sure it’s working and that everything has a dripper on it. I doubt we get every plant set up with automatic water. That’s okay. I’m mentally preparing myself that we may lose a few things. I’ve delighted in the beauty of my landscape this year. The severe hail storm that caused so much damage in late April taught me that you never know what is going to happen. So if I come home to a few dead plants, I’ll remind myself that autumn and cooler weather are only a short time away, an ideal time to re-plant.

Rollin' On By Brett Gallagher, Cascadia Expeditions

With Oregon summer in full bloom, there’s no better time than now to paddle down one of Oregon’s amazing rivers. Oregon has over 35,000 miles of named rivers and Oregonians have a long history as boaters. If you’re new to the state, or just looking to dust off that river gear and get back out there, Oregon has several Wild and Scenic rivers and ample opportunities for fun in the sun this summer. There are many ways to get out and enjoy our local rivers, personally I’m a huge fan of paddling a raft or a kayak. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to be an expert paddler to get out and enjoy yourself. Access to popular rivers is amazingly easy here in Oregon, with options of amazing whitewater, calm lagoons and peaceful river floats. Not sure which adventure is right for you? Jump on a tour with a professional guide service. I am usually a huge advocate of Do-it-Yourself and jumping in with both feet (literally), however, watersports can be extremely dangerous and rivers in Oregon take several lives each year. So if you are a true beginner, I advocate taking a tour with a reputable guide service to learn some basic skills and water safety principles before going it alone. Another benefit to using a guide service: They will have all the gear and equipment you need to try your hand at paddling without draining your bank account. I too have been convinced

by mass marketing and the salesman at the REI that I needed to max out my credit card to prepare for an adventure, but taking a step back and trying a few different styles, models, makes, sizes will help you make the best long-term decision. Additionally, us professional guide types tend to geek out on gear and are more than happy to share our opinions, our accumulated experience (and sometimes wisdom) with anyone interested enough to ask. What should I paddle? Kayaks and Rafts and SUPs, Oh My! With so many options available these days, it might be hard to know what type of boat suits you best. From classic crafts like canoes and kayaks, to rafts, to fancy new carbon-fiber StandUp Paddleboards, the options can be overwhelming. Being able to try before you buy is imperative, as all these boats have different uses. Kayaking Kayaking as a sport is continuing to grow in popularity. The kayak has a long history as a vehicle for fishing and hunting. Eskimos originally built kayaks out of wooden frames, covered with seal-skins, with air-filled bladders inside them. Kayak technology has come a long-way, and now there are several types of kayak on the market. From play-boats, to touring August / September 2016

n The River kayaks, to whitewater creek boats, kayaks have many different uses. Kayaks are a great option for the independent paddler, someone looking for solitude or a personal challenge. Learning to kayak can be quite easy in a sit-on-top kayak, and Oregon has some of the best flat-water thru paddles in the country. We love kayaking the Willamette and are pretty sure you will too! For daily tours in the Corvallis area, Cascadia Expeditions offers both half-day and full-day kayaking adventures. If you’re looking to go on your own, there is an excellent map of the Willamette water trail, you can find a copy on their website at Rafting Rafting is one of my very favorite activities. Big, inflatable and able to carry tons of gear, the raft is definitely my boat of choice for most trips. I love the social aspect of being able to grab a group of friends and head off the grid to some of Oregon’s most beautiful areas. Rafts are essentially gear barges, super forgiving on mellow whitewater and provide a stable platform to kick back and relax. Our favorite rivers are the Grande Ronde and John Day (April – June) and the Deschutes, McKenzie and North Santiam rivers during the heat of the summer. Day trips are great for the thrill-seeker, family or team-building adventure, whereas an overnight trip really allows you to get off the grid and relax. Check boating regulations before you go, and know

there is a HUGE difference between a $200 plastic raft you buy at the local sporting goods store and a reputable whitewater raft that can cost thousands of dollars. We’ve had to rescue more than one group who didn’t appreciate the difference. Give us a call if you have any questions! Stand Up Paddleboard The Stand-Up-Paddleboard (SUP) craze is in full swing here in Oregon, as more and more people take the rivers and lakes to try out this fun and challenging exercise. SUPping is a great way to get a core workout and challenge yourself to try a new activity. Several types of boards are on the market, however the price tags can be astronomical, so we advocate hopping on a tour or renting to try out a few different types of boards before you buy. From touring boards to whitewater SUPs, there’s really something for everyone and they’re a lot of fun. Just be prepared for a great workout! With river season in full-swing, I hope you get outside and take advantage of all the amazing paddling Oregon has to offer. Be sure to wear your life-jacket, know the area before you go and give me a call if you have any questions! We’re always happy to usher new paddlers into this fulfilling sport.

Local Summer Fun

Summer in the City: Michael Gibbons (left) and fellow artists at Paint Out #2 in Portland during the summer of 2014.

Watch out Phelps!

As the olympics roll into Rio, we will see great achievements made by extraordinary athletes from varying countries. We’ll enjoy the tumbling from our young women gymnasts, the thrashing of water as US swimmers continue to dominate, and we’ll cheer on the fleeting folks in track and field. Some may enjoy what is becoming one of fhe fastest olympic sports in the world, Triathlon. Contrary to the world championships held in Hawaii, incredible athletes will compete at the Olympic distance category and defy us mere mortals, as they maneuver through a 1500 meter swim, a 24 mile ride, and a 10k run. Meantime, as we watch the TV, some of us may ask ourselves “I wonder if I can do that?” The answer is yes. No need to worry if you’re a newbie to this sport, the Umph Relay was designed to give folks an opportunity to sample Triathlon. Nowhere in the world has this event been structured in such a way to advance the sport, and allow more inclusion of "regular folks" than the Umph Relay. Beginning Friday night, August 26 and finishing Sunday, August 29, athletes to couch potatoes can venture into the world of triathlon. It’s a relay event that covers just over 140 miles. Each team can have up to 15 members, however only 5 members can participate per sport (run, swim, bike). So on Friday night at Corvallis’ Osborn center, participants will swim 2.4 miles. It’s a 50 meter pool, so you can swim a 50 and let your relay member do the next 50, followed by the next member, and so on. On Saturday morning, teams will gather at the beautiful Emerson Vineyards and bicycle the 112 mile on an out and back 22 mileloop. Do 5 laps with your buddies, and enjoy sunshine, food, and plenty of wine. On Sunday morning, teams will run around the Bald Hill area for a marathon. The course is a 2.6 mile loop. So 10 loops and you’re done. Meantime, there will be great music booming to cheer runners along, food, and great times with friends and family.

En Plein Air #3 - In Toledo! Michael Gibbons collaborated in 2014 with friend and fellow artist Thomas Kitts to help organize the second Plein Air Paint Out in the parks for the Portland Art Museum. “Path of Roses” is a painting of summer beauty done in that City of Roses that includes the famous bronze of Teddy Roosevelt on his horse. The “war-like” feel of the statue is changed as one enters Gibbon’s path in the painting of the beautiful public garden. A hot August day can almost be felt in this rich and colorful oil painting done ala prima during the Paint Out. “I sought and found a direct way to walk in the park through my painting”, said Gibbons. The 3rd Annual Plein Air Competition and Show with awards totaling $3000, sponsored by the Toledo Yaquina River Museum of Art (YRMA), opens with an all- day reception for the artists on Saturday September 3 from 10am-5pm continuing through Toledo's 23rd Annual Labor Day Weekend Art Walk Sept. 4 & 5. The School House is open, free to the public, showing the Plein Air Show Wednesday to Sunday from 12-4 pm through Sept.30 at 151 NE Alder, Toledo. The two-building non-profit museum campus in the Legacy Arts Terrace founded by Michael and Judy Gibbons in 2002 also includes the “1926 Vicarage House Museum” directly across the street which is open to the public by appointment. The Vicarage Garden will be open free to the public during the 3-day event with live music by the “Sons of the Beaches” under a tent-top; scheduled art talks by artists from the Plein Air show; and a wine and cheese reception for artist Michael Gibbons who will be showing Oregon landscapes and seascapes in his Signature Gallery and the Garden. A new feature this year for Art Walk will be a free Punch & Toby hand puppet show presented each day in the Legacy Arts Terrace at 2:30pm by the Oregon Coast Children’s Theatre. Art Walk 23 welcomes Georgia-Pacific Toledo as Corporate Sponsor for this 3-day event. It is with the cooperation of this industry that 50+ Toledo and guest artists will be showing their art throughout the city truly making it: "Toledo, where art and industry meet!"

And on Monday, you can tell everyone you did an Ironman Triathlon! For more information visit:

Living H By Allison Lamplugh


here is the happiest place on Earth? If you thought Disneyland, think again. It’s actually Denmark. And there’s data to back that up.

its ranking despite a serious financial crisis, while Spain, Italy, and Greece fell in the happiness rankings in part because they lacked the cohesiveness to pull through their financial troubles.

The idea of measuring happiness has gained traction in the 21st century, and many organizations are collecting data to identify what makes people happy and where the happiest people are.

The report also shows that people are happier living in a society where there is less inequality of happiness. To be noted, the happiness inequality has increased since the first report in almost all countries and regions of the world. Happiness, the authors argue, can provide a better indicator of human welfare than income, poverty, education, health, and good government measured separately.

Although the United States may be on the top of many other lists, happiness, according to the data, is not one of them. This year’s results have the same top three as the year before, except their order was rearranged. Denmark won with the happiest citizens averaging 7.526 on the happiness scale, followed by Switzerland at 7.509, and Iceland at 7.501. The United States ranked thirteenth at 7.104. The bottom three included Togo, Syria, and Burundi. According to the authors, social cohesiveness was of much importance for the results of the World Happiness Report. Iceland’s high level of trust helped


The Happiness Index is based off a project from the Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan in the Eastern Himalayas. Their prime minister, Jigmi Y. Thinley, was determined to measure the gross national happiness. He then got the United Nations to invite other nations to measure their happiness as a guide to improve public policies. In 2012 the worldwide report was born.

3,000 people in each country. Each person was asked to rank their answers based on the Cantril Ladder—an imaginary ladder of ten steps, with the best possible life for them being the tenth step and the worst possible life being zero steps. Participants were asked six questions for respondents to rank that were weighed with the GDP per capita: social support, healthy life expectancy, freedom to make life choices, generosity, perception of corruption, and everything else. The answers are then averaged per country, giving insight to the country with the happiest people by their own accord. On a smaller scale, we asked ourselves how Oregonians can increase their equality of happiness. Based on the questions from the World Happiness Index, here are some sites and activities that we hope will enhance your mind and body, your values and virtues, and fulfill social and cultural enrichment while enjoying what Oregon has to offer.

In the 2016 World Happiness Index—the third of its kind—researchers ranked 156 countries based off surveys given to up to

Happy Increase your Oregon happiness index: Experience Zen The Zen Community of Oregon is a Soto Zen Buddhist monastery in Clatskanie. They offer meditation through authentic Zen practice to the public several times a week, as well as meditation walks in their Zen gardens. A 2013 study by Carlos III Health Institute found that meditation provokes a different expression of brain metabolites, specifically those metabolites linked to anxiety and depression. Meditation shows a strong link with well-being because it calms the body, reduces stress and anxiety, and supports positive thinking. Visit botanical gardens The Oregon Garden in Silverton is an 80acre botanical garden with more than 20 themed gardens, from tropical to wetlands to rose or conifer. They offer tram tours and self-guided walking tours to enjoy the outdoor oasis. Group nature walks are linked with significantly lower depression, less perceived stress, and enhanced mental health and well-being, according to a 2014 study conducted at the University of Michigan.

Enjoy waterfalls and hiking trails Silver Creek Falls is nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains and includes 9,200 acres of hiking, biking and horse trails. The Trail of Ten Falls weaves through a dense forested area, with a series of breathtaking waterfalls in a 7.2 mile loop. Research has shown that a 50-minute walk in nature can improve your mood, decrease your anxiety, and improve your memory. A 2016 study also showed that a 90-minute walk in a natural environment can lead to measurable changes in the brain, and help combat depression. Observe exotic wildlife The Wildlife Safari in Winston is a one-ofa-kind experience. The park has over 76 species, most of which roam free as you drive a 600-acre safari loop. You can see exotic creatures from around the world including tigers, giraffes, zebras, lions, elephants, bison, ostrich, and bears. A Hiroshima University study focused on animal-people interaction concluded that “cuteness” not only makes us happier, it also improves our performance on tasks that require behavioral carefulness.

Walk below the canopy Valley of the Giants is a 51-acre forest preserve in a remote portion of the Oregon Coast Range. Getting more than 180 inches of rain each year, douglas firs and western hemlocks date back hundreds of years and can stand at a regal 200 feet. Numerous studies have shown trees help people live longer, healthier, happier lives—to the tune of $6.8 billion in averted health costs annually in the U.S., according to research published in the 2014 journal Environmental Pollution. Discover the mystery The House of Mystery in Gold Hill is considered a vortex in which strange phenomena on the landscape create optical illusions. Objects seem to roll uphill, relative height can change next to another person depending on where you stand, and structures appear to be sideways. Research by psychologist Rich Walker of Winston-Salem State University showed people who engage in a variety of experiences are more likely to retain positive emotions and minimize negative ones than people who have fewer experiences.

Fall Care for a Healthier, Better Looking Lawn By Melinda Myers

As summer fades into fall it is time to help lawns recover from summer stress and prepare for the winter ahead. Continue to mow your lawn as long as it continues to grow. Grow cool season grasses like bluegrass, fescue and ryegrass 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 inches tall. Warm season grasses like bermudagrass, carpetgrass, centipedegrass and zoysia should be grown at 1 to 2 inches tall while St. Augustine should a bit higher, 2 to 3 inches, for best results.  Taller grass is better able to compete with weeds.  And there is no need to cut it shorter for the health of your lawn. Mow often, removing no more than one third the total height. Leave these short clippings on the lawn. They will quickly break down, adding organic matter, moisture and nutrients to the soil. And as you mow you can take care of all those fall leaves at the same time. Shred the fall leaves and allow them to remain on the lawn. As long as you can see the leaf blades through the shredded leaves your lawn will be fine. And just like the clippings, they add nutrients and organic matter to the soil. Fertilize your lawn with a low nitrogen, slow release fertilizer like Milorganite  ( University research has shown that fall fertilization is the most beneficial practice for home lawns. Less disease problems and slower weed growth means your lawns - not the weeds and pests - benefit from the nutrients.  Fall fertilization also helps lawns recover from the stresses of summer because it encourages deep roots and denser growth that can better compete with weeds and tolerate disease and insects. 

aerate or dethatch northern lawns suffering from thatch build up or compacted soil. Thatch is a layer of partially decomposed dead grass plants that prevents water and nutrients from reaching the grass roots. Use a dethatching machine to remove thatch layers greater than one half an inch. Or core aerate the lawn to create openings in the thatch layer and help reduce soil compaction to encourage root growth and allow water and nutrients to infiltrate the soil. Overseeding your lawn in the fall helps increase thickness and improves the overall health and appearance of the lawn.  For best results, overseed directly after aerating. Begin implementing some of these strategies and soon you’ll be on your way to a healthier, better looking lawn for the coming growing season. Gardening expert Melinda Myers has more than 30 years of horticulture experience and has written over 20 gardening books, including Small Space Gardening and the Midwest Gardener’s Handbook. She hosts The Great Courses “How to Grow Anything: Food Gardening For Everyone” DVD set and the nationally syndicated Melinda’s Garden Moment TV & radio segments. Myers is a columnist and contributing editor for Birds & Blooms magazine and spokesperson for Milorganite. Myers’ website is

Those in colder regions growing cool weather bluegrass, fescue and perennial ryegrass should fertilize around Labor Day and sometime between Halloween and Thanksgiving, but before the ground freezes. Homeowners in warmer climates growing warm season grasses like centipede, Bermuda and zoysia should fertilize around Labor Day. Apply a low nitrogen slow release fertilizer then and in early October if overseeding the lawn. Make sure the last fall application is at least one month prior to the average first killing frost. Fertilizing later can result in winter damage. Weeds often gain a foothold in the lawn during the stressful summer months. A healthy lawn is the best defense.  Even with proper care weeds can bully their way into the lawn.  Try digging, root and all, to remove small populations of weeds.  Weeding can be a great tension reducer and physical workout. If this isn’t possible, consider spot treating weeds or problem areas with a broadleaf weedkiller. Those looking for more organic options may want to try one of the more eco-friendly products with the active ingredient Fehedta or Hedta. Whether using traditional or environmentally-friendly products read and follow label directions carefully.  All these products are plant killers and can cause damage to other plants if not applied properly. Fall, when the lawn is actively growing, is the best time to core

Hey Honey, Check out Mason Bees! By Allison Lamplugh When talking about pollinators, often times the honey bee is the first we think of. While there is no doubt of their importance to pollination, their lesser known cousins—the leafcutter and mason bee—are much more effective pollinators. In fact, they are of more use to a home gardener than a honey bee. Honey bee vs. leafcutter and mason bees

Honey bees are indeed great pollen gatherers, but leafcutter and mason bees are great pollinators. They carry pollen on their hairy abdomen and scrape the pollen off within their nest. Because the pollen is carried dry on their hair, it falls off easily as they move among blossoms. As a result, they pollinate more flowers than the honey bee, who wets the pollen so it sticks to its legs during transport. While honey bees may visit your yard as they pass through, leafcutter and mason bees are permanent residents. The honey bee travels up to five miles from its hive


to forage, but leafcutter and mason bees stay within 300 feet of their home. For this reason, housing these species in your yard will increase your flower and fruit productivity. Leafcutter Bees

Leafcutters have the ability to handle extreme temperatures, and are most active in late summer, thriving in 80 to 110 degree weather. They are ideal for pollinating melons, blueberries, peas, and other late summer vegetables. The leafcutter gets its name because it cuts leaves and uses them in their nest. They are particular about the kind of leaf they use; it can’t be too tough to cut with their mandibles, it can’t be too thick to roll for transport, and it can’t be too veiny to cut easily. In the Northwest, prefered leaves come from hostas, lilacs, roses, or bougainvillea. Having leaves they like within 100 feet of their home is essential or they will move on.

Mason Bees

The mason bee is a productive pollinator for early spring flowers, fruits, and nuts. They emerge when daytime temperatures reach a consistent 55 degrees. Generally, this is about the same time as cherry trees blossom. What is unique about the mason bee is they gather nectar with their tongue at the same time they collect pollen on their underside. Because they gather pollen and nectar on the same visit, they are excellent cross-pollinators as they move between trees and flowers. The mason bee gets its name because of its craftsmanship when building its home. An essential element to keep mason bees in your yard is to have available mud within 150 feet of their home. The mason bee packs its nesting hole with the mud, separating each egg chamber from the other, just as the leafcutter uses leaves. If they cannot find mud in your yard, they will vacate.

August / September 2016

Mud for mason bees

You will need to keep a small amount of mud, about 9 inches wide and deep. Ideally, the mud should be in a hole in the ground and not exposed dirt or in a container. When in the ground, the moisture is higher and less dried from the sun. When you dig your hole in a shady place, ensure there is claylike mud on a sidewall. Mason bees prefer more compact mud because it is easy to carry in their mandibles. If it is too dry it will be difficult to carry and harder to pack into their “hole.” Placing a bee home

Both leafcutter and mason bees are cavity dwellers and do not create holes or damage structures to make holes. They are opportunists that like a hole slightly larger than their bodies, about the width of a pencil, with a depth of about 6 inches. The same home can be used for both species because they are active during opposite seasons. Homes often have the appearance of a bird house, with an open face and straw-like tubes piled on top of each other. The tubes are the “holes” the female will pack with her eggs. Each hole will have up to 15 egg chambers, each packed with pollen, one egg, and a leaf cutting or mud, depending on the species, to close the chamber. Homes should face a southern or southeastern wall so morning sun will wake your bees to begin pollinating. If your climate has hot summer weather, consider a location with sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon. Prolonged direct sunlight will overheat the home and kill cocoons. Do not place the home near a bird watering station. Your bees may become a tasty treat to visiting birds. If birds take interest in the bee home as a potential nesting site for themselves, placing chicken wire on the front will keep them out. It’s important to not move the nest once bees have arrived. They know exactly which hole is theirs and may get confused and leave if the hole they remember is moved. Getting started

Shonnard’s Nursery has a full-service bee department if you are in the Willamette Valley. There you can find everything from the bees to homes to accessories. Crown Bees is a good place for online orders. They too offer all you need to get started and maintain bee homes. Crown Bees offers a program to trade excess bees for nesting material to use in the next season, as each year your bee population should double. Shonnard’s offers services to help maintain homes. Both companies offer items to help harvest and incubate cocoons if you should choose to winter them under protection of a garage or shed for maximum survival of the brood. Garland Nursery in Corvallis is offering a class for little gardeners in August!

Summer Makeup Tips to Keep You Looking

Cheryl Lohman Looking cool and beautiful can be a trick when summer heat begins to climb and your makeup threatens to slide down your face. These summer makeup tips will help you maintain your fabulous look even when the temperature soars: •

Stay hydrated. The human body is up to 60% water so carry a water bottle in your bag and sip away to keep skin plumped and moist. (this also prevents premature aging skin)

Moisturize with a moisturizer containing SPF 15 to 30 sunscreen to protect your face from the damaging ultra-violet rays.

Use a lightweight oil-free primer under foundation to help base and blush last longer. You only need a pea-sized drop for your whole face.

Instead of powder blushes, try a sheer cream, liquid or gel blush. Powders cake in the heat and humidity, but gels and creams soak into skin.

Draw attention to eyes and lips with bright summer colors like peachy oranges and pale rosy pinks.

Fresh and Cool •

Want to look fabulous no matter how hot it gets? Invest in permanent makeup and you’ll wonder why you waited so long!

Because it is long lasting and difficult to remove, it is essential to have permanent makeup applied by a highly qualified specialist. Many people feel they would benefit from permanent makeup services, however are reluctant to proceed because they don’t know how to select a good artist. Similar to finding a surgeon, this is not a service you want to bargain shop for. You will want to have a consultation to see actual client photos and learn everything you need to make an informed choice. Today, many professional permanent cosmetic specialists are members of the world’s leading, not-for-profit society devoted to this field, the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals (SPCP). This organization sets standards of practice for its members, which assures the public of the highest levels of professionalism. With that assurance you can look good all summer long and beyond with the ultimate minimalist makeup!
