Yesterday in the Garden

I came home yesterday after a very busy week and had a few minutes before I needed to start dinner. So I grabbed my camera and went out to the backyard where I found my new dahlias in bloom – fuchsias – the most… Continue Reading “Yesterday in the Garden”

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. Next year I shall add to their numbers. Sharing with… Continue Reading “Wax Begonia – Workhorse of the Garden”

Afternoon Photoshoot with the Hummingbirds

I must have let the feeders run dry. I saw the hummers land first on one, then the other before flying away. Sorry about that boys. I ran into the house to make the sugar water and cooled it quickly in the freezer. I… Continue Reading “Afternoon Photoshoot with the Hummingbirds”

What’s In My Garden?

Cats Tiger and Benji believe the backyard is their kingdom and who am I to tell them otherwise? Birds I dream of a world where cats and birds live together in peace. Until then I keep an eye on both. Bees and Herbs I’m… Continue Reading “What’s In My Garden?”

Watching the Hummingbirds with Benji

I heard the birds in the trees overhead and pulled up a chair to watch. Benji joined me on my lap. An Anna’s Hummingbird perched high above – perhaps he watched me too. I moved to the shed to hide from view and Benji… Continue Reading “Watching the Hummingbirds with Benji”

Bugs – It’s What’s for Lunch at the Wren’s House!

I had other plans today but was tired and decided to do some backyard birding instead. I could hear the wrens chatter so I pulled up a chair and positioned myself for a good look at the birdhouses on the garden shed. It wasn’t… Continue Reading “Bugs – It’s What’s for Lunch at the Wren’s House!”

Opening Sunflowers

I love sunflowers but don’t grow any in my garden – maybe I should change that next year. In the meantime I love coming across them as we did last week at one of the lavender farms in Sequim, these in various states of… Continue Reading “Opening Sunflowers”

Visiting the B & B Lavender Farm in Sequim

I LOVE lavender and have been growing it in my garden for the last 20 years, almost as long as the farms in Sequim, the self proclaimed lavender capital of North America. Located in the sunbelt of the Olympic Peninsula, the little town transformed… Continue Reading “Visiting the B & B Lavender Farm in Sequim”

A House Finch Courtship and a Hummingbird Flyby

I stepped outside today and heard the song of a house finch overhead. Truth be known it was not that melodious, he sang like a one-note Ned continuously and persistently. But it was enough to attract a female nearby and she followed him. While… Continue Reading “A House Finch Courtship and a Hummingbird Flyby”
