Adirondacks all in a row at Schreiner's Iris Gardens, Salem, Oregon
On Memorial Day, a few hours after I took this photo of long row of empty Adirondack chairs, each one held at least one person, maybe two, or more if a child was involved. You see, from when I arrived and parked as the third vehicle in the lot until the BBQ began at 11:30 a.m., more and more people arrived to enjoy themselves in the sunshine and flowers.
I didn't notice if the same size chairs sprinkled more randomly alongside and at the opposite end of each display garden had filled with folks, but surely they had. By the time I'd eaten my BBQ, every seat at every table situated beneath the canopies you see here was taken, too, with other folks surely as hungry as I had been.
