From the Fall Garden

We’re back on standard time in the Great Northwest. Days are growing shorter and fall is winding down and it won’t be long till winter is upon us. But it’s not over yet and here in my backyard I’m still surrounded by green. A… Continue Reading “From the Fall Garden”

Hummingbirds Up Close

It’s been cold and damp here in the Northwest so it’s been a while since I’ve been outside watching the hummingbirds. I keep the feeders full of course and see them through the window but I haven’t gone out and waited for them with… Continue Reading “Hummingbirds Up Close”

Cattin’ Around in the Garden With Benji

There’s nothing like spending time in the garden with Benji. Whether it’s watching him leap effortlessly to the top of the fence to survey his kingdom. Or watching him hunt a green bean; It’s a thing of beauty. ~ Susanne

No Festival this Year but No One Told the Lavender

The Pandemic may have shut down the Lavender Festival this year but we stopped by Purple Haze in Sequim to enjoy the show anyway. We were not disappointed. ~ Susanne
