Busy as a Bee

I walked in my garden today and stopped to watch the bees. Bees on a mission working together and apart, Taking no thought of the other. Bees on the lavender and bees on the chives, Buzzing from blossom to blossom there was room for… Continue Reading “Busy as a Bee”

A Photo a Week Challenge: Clematis Three Ways

I planted this clematis in my garden many years ago and it’s been happily climbing ever since – up the fence, around neighboring shrubs, and over everything in its path.  It doesn’t ask for fertilizer or any special care, just a place to spread… Continue Reading “A Photo a Week Challenge: Clematis Three Ways”

Lady’s Mantle with the Dew

For Cee’s… Continue Reading “More Daffodils – I couldn’t resist”

Winter Bouquet

For this week’s photo prompt from Travel with Intent, ‘White,’ I looked no further than this bouquet. I picked it up at the grocery store for $5 and am still wowed by the star chrysanthemum.  It was money well spent. ~ Susanne

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… Continue Reading “Crazy for Purple”

Road Tripping though the Beautiful Skagit Valley

An hour north of Seattle lies the fertile Skagit Valley known for its fields of tulips and daffodils. We were fortunate to be at the fields yesterday, on a weekday without the crowds, and before the rain was scheduled to appear. The daffodils were… Continue Reading “Road Tripping though the Beautiful Skagit Valley”
