Wax Begonia – Workhorse of the Garden

After yesterday’s rain I went for a walk in my garden and found wax begonias blooming heartily where I planted them earlier this year. I may have neglected them but they didn’t neglect me.

A Drive Through Grand Teton National Park

No trip to Yellowstone is complete without a visit to the Grand Tetons even if it’s only a drive-thru as it was for us.

Photography Shenanigans – Fun with Watercolors and Moon Shots

Even though I remembered last night’s super pink moon I wasn’t really ready for it. Earlier in the day I’d gone outside to take pictures of my backyard stream using long exposures. My Sony RX10 has some cool functions so I also used one… Continue Reading “Photography Shenanigans – Fun with Watercolors and Moon Shots”

Indian Plum

I discovered a new shrub this spring – or should I say I discovered its name? I’d seen it many times on my walks in the woods, always stopping to admire its growth in the dead of winter and its blossoms in early spring.… Continue Reading “Indian Plum”
