Heavy Sky and Hummingbirds to Cheer

Today the sky is heavy with smoke and the air quality is poor due to the wildfires. So I wondered – should I share pictures of today’s sky? Or last week’s pictures of hummingbirds? I opted for both and hoped the latter would cheer… Continue Reading “Heavy Sky and Hummingbirds to Cheer”

Isn’t Orange Wonderful?

Yes it is! In fact it’s one of my favorite colors. So for Sunday Still’s Photo Challenge I thought I’d share some orange flowers beginning with the fragile yellows at one end of the spectrum and marching towards red at the other. And that’s… Continue Reading “Isn’t Orange Wonderful?”

Summer Harvest and Little Green Apples!

As summer is winding down I have to admit there wasn’t much to harvest from the garden this year. The strawberries were disappointing and their bed has already been stripped to be given to something more worthy. There were only a handful of raspberries,… Continue Reading “Summer Harvest and Little Green Apples!”

The Hummers of Summer

No not this kind, though there was that too – a ride through the woods in a genuine surplus army rig – but that’s another story. I’m speaking of the other kind – the hummingbirds that live in my yard and frequent my feeders… Continue Reading “The Hummers of Summer”

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

I would review the brochures, look at my pictures and develop the coming stories. On the Quinault Rainforest. On the world’s… Continue Reading “Backyard Interlude and Benji”

Today’s Chickadees in the Garden

Before the hummingbirds won my heart the chickadees had it already. Tiny, cheerful, and talkative they call to one another while feasting among the evergreen trees. Today as I sat with my camera – waiting for the hummingbirds to come and drink from freshly… Continue Reading “Today’s Chickadees in the Garden”

Good morning and welcome to my garden where life is growing and hummingbirds are courting! Here’s the view of the garden beds from above. Herbs and flowers are at their peak and edibles are in various stages of growth. Bush beans are flourishing and… Continue Reading “Garden Update and Hummingbird Dance”

Roses and Herbs and Bees in The Garden

Honestly I have a lot of local travel stories still in the queue – all backed up and waiting to be shared. But the garden called me so I lingered there taking time to smell the roses and watch the bees among the herbs.… Continue Reading “Roses and Herbs and Bees in The Garden”
