Crazy for Purple

Who doesn’t love purple?  Not me for sure!  So I went through some recent photos to share for this week’s prompt from Travel with Intent. I found these leaves on a hydrangea recently at Soos Creek Botanical Garden. I admit my own hydrangeas never…

The Earth in Layers at the Grand Canyon

We spent a few days at the Grand Canyon last year and got to experience its magnificent beauty from many angles at different times of day. The picture below was taken while the sun was rising near Mather Point. The next few pictures, which…

Shorter Days and Early Sunsets

We gained an hour last night – which really means we lost it – and the shorter days mean early sunsets.  So I took advantage of the break in the rain and walked to the park this afternoon before five. The clouds hung low…

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Things People Drive

I was disappointed when Word Press stopped the Daily Post Prompts and Weekly Challenges as they used to help fuel my posts.   When my own inspiration ran dry, I could often rise up to a prompt or challenge.  Fortunately other bloggers have picked…

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Places People Visit

On our road trip to Yellowstone last month we stopped by a number of places we might not otherwise visit.  In Eastern Washington, it was the tiny town of Zillah for a look at the Teapot Dome Service Station, a charming piece of Americana. …

Blue

I hope you enjoy these fanciful jellyfish as much as I did today at the Pt. Defiance Pacific Seas Aquarium.  I thought they’d be a nice fit for the Sunday Challenge at ‘Travel with Intent,’ where this week’s word prompt is Blue. ~ Susanne

Reflections on Fall

It starts with September my favorite month. I close my eyes and see the school, as sturdy as the last century. It’s 4th grade again and Miss Warner is young.  Her face and hair and dress all a golden tan; her hair short and…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Orange

Okay so I made it up myself. I miss the Weekly Photo Challenge and decided to do my own to carry me through the week. The word is ‘orange’ of the sweet, juicy variety and also of the capital Orange variety, for here I…

Inspiration in the Clouds

I went to the park today and found everything and everyone happy and festive in the warm sunshine.  There was the heavy scent of ripe grass evoking childhood memories and a little truck with its driver dispensing ice cream bars.  Children ran and jumped…

Final Weekly Photo Challenge: All Time Favorites

Time to say goodbye to The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge with the final prompt, ‘All Time Favorites.’  So here you go. Happy Sleeping Cats Trails of the Pacific Northwest Soos Creek Botanical Garden All-Time Favorites Thanks Daily Post for the inspiration! ~  Susanne

Weekly Photo Challenge: Twisted Tendrils

I just returned from a few days in Long Beach on the Washington Coast (look for posts to come on that) and while I was there visited nearby Cape Disappointment. As I walked through dense coastal forest I noticed flourishing native shrubs tightly packed…

Wowed by Clouds

I went looking for the sunset last night but was wowed by the clouds instead. These were thick and buoyant like mysterious creatures under the sea. They lit up with a filter applied. This  giant was delicate with hints of pink. But became wild…
