Speaking of natives…

Spent the day on Mt Hood, and reveled in the exuberant abundance of plant life on the mountain meadows.


About annamadeit

Born and raised in Sweden, my aesthetics and outlook on life are strongly shaped by a culture rich in history and tradition. I care a great deal about environmental responsibility, and my aesthetic reflects the visually clean, functional practicality and sustainable solutions that are the hallmarks of modern Scandinavia. I was trained as an architect at the University of Cincinnati and as a color specialist at the Scandinavian Colour Institute in Stockholm. I'm obsessed with plants and gardens, and aim to take my skill set a step further by designing gardens as well as interiors. As someone so aptly said: " Architecture is the skin that separates the exterior from the interior". So true - you can't successfully focus on one without incorporating the other. I'm also an avid cook, and I love to ski. In addition, I put time and efforts into trying to rectify things that I feel are wrong in my immediate community. As you will see, The Creative Flux will touch on all these things, and more. For sure, it's all over the map, but then again - so am I! Welcome to my blog!

    Mount Hood is beautiful. I’m planning to backpack through Paradise Park this coming weekend. I should have a blog posted about it early next week. You should have a look!

    My wife and I hiked on the north side of Mt. Hood on Sunday 8/21 and we saw something new for us: avalanche lilies and Indian paintbrush growing side by side! We usually see the lilies as the snow retreats and the paintbrush once it gets hot. It’s been an unusual season. Thanks for the photos!
