Summer Weed or Flower?

The dandelion is an herb with medicinal properties, traditionally used to treat various ailments and infections; it can be made into tea or wine and used in soups and salads. I’ve never eaten one. I still consider it a weed, growing tenaciously where it… Continue Reading “Summer Weed or Flower?”

Finding Pink on a Weekend Road Trip

Pink is the theme of this week’s Sunday Stills Photo Challenge and I found some on our weekend getaway. We stopped by Mt. Vernon in the Skagit Valley and I was reminded this is Tulip Country. I love to visit the tulip fields when… Continue Reading “Finding Pink on a Weekend Road Trip”

Daffodils of the Skagit Valley

On the sunniest day of the last week of winter I made the trek to the Skagit Valley and found the fields at Roozengaarde brilliant with daffodils. I excused my husband so he wouldn’t have to endure the waiting while I wandered around taking… Continue Reading “Daffodils of the Skagit Valley”

Rosy Red Flowers

Outside a light rain is falling and the beautiful white covering we enjoyed the past few days is drip, drip, dripping away and will soon be gone. So I had to reach deep into my archives to find rosy red flowers for this week’s… Continue Reading “Rosy Red Flowers”

Flower of the Day: Debutante Camelia

There never was a more fitting name for a flower than ‘debutante,’ one of the earliest camelias to bloom. I found her waiting next to a bench at Flower World and was enchanted by her pale pink ruffles and pearls. I should have brought… Continue Reading “Flower of the Day: Debutante Camelia”
