Water, Fire and Ice!

In celebration of Earth Day this week, I thought I’d give you a tour of water, fire and ice from my place in the world. The first picture is not my own as I have not yet scaled these heights.  Still, can you see…

2020 SuperMoon

The closest supermoon of 2020 occurred last night so even though I already posted moon shots earlier this week I thought I’d give you another. According to Wikipedia, “A supermoon is a full moon or a new moon that nearly coincides with perigee—the closest…

Embracing the Moon

It was a warm and pleasant evening, quiet but for the chirping of the frogs. I watched as the moon rose full in the sky, embraced by the trees, and was blessed. ~ Susanne

Super Worm Moon Through the Trees

Strange name isn’t it? But that’s what tonight’s last full moon of winter is called.  It was a clear night so I went out to watch it while it was rising through the trees. So there you have it. The Super Worm Moon through…

The Changing Color of the Anna’s Hummingbird

I replenished the feeders yesterday so the nectar was fresh and plentiful during this week of snowy weather. I watched the first hummingbird hover nearby – apparently for a good look at me –  before swooping in dressed in camouflage of green and black. …

Benji’s Portfolio

“Hey Benji.  Now that you’ve made it into your first calendar, I need to put a portfolio together for you. We need to be ready.” “What’s a portfolio Sue? And ready for what?” “Ready for the next calendar. Or contest.  All models keep a…

Winter Scenes in the Pacific Northwest

Just last week I was walking along the Cedar River Trail, enjoying temperatures close to 60 degrees. Today we have our first snow of the year.  I like both. Wet, sloppy snowflakes have already stopped falling and the thin layer that covered the ground…
