Colors of the Pacific Northwest

Despite my dreams of a Winter Wonderland there’s no snow yet in the Great Northwest only rain, rain, and more rain. What’s a person to do? Time for an indoor project and it so happens I’ve got one. For the last couple of months… Continue Reading “Colors of the Pacific Northwest”

Ambling in the Rainy Day Garden

After being missing in action for most of April, the rain returned to the Pacific Northwest and was welcomed by all. I took a walk in the garden admiring the raindrops on the Lady’s Mantle the Chives and the budding Clematis. It won’t be… Continue Reading “Ambling in the Rainy Day Garden”
