Snowbirds of the Skagit Valley

Last week I visited the daffodil fields of the Skagit Valley and got to see the snowbirds too! Thousands of snowbirds including snow geese from Russia’s Wrangel Island and trumpeter swans from Canada and Alaska migrate south along the Pacific Flyway to spend the… Continue Reading “Snowbirds of the Skagit Valley”

Black and White on the Oregon Coast

I don’t take many pictures in black and white but my favorites are from the Oregon Coast. A few years ago we took a trip down the coast in January, and stopped at Ecola State Park just north of Cannon Beach. The weather was… Continue Reading “Black and White on the Oregon Coast”

Finding Beauty in Rainy Day Walks

I pretty much have to. I’m from Seattle where rain – or the threat of rain – happens often, especially November through March. And while we only get an average of 38 inches a year – far less than many other U.S. cities –… Continue Reading “Finding Beauty in Rainy Day Walks”

My favorite Little Backyard Birds

I love birds, all kinds of birds, especially those that visit my garden. The little chickadees live in the evergreens surrounding my home and I’m continually charmed as I listen to their call – chicka-dee-dee-dee. I don’t feed them as they seem to be… Continue Reading “My favorite Little Backyard Birds”

Me and My Sony at Point Defiance!

I told you last week of my camera woes, when the zoom and controls on my Sony RX10 froze up. I thought it was the end of my favorite camera but after I replaced the battery and SD card, and restored initial settings, it’s… Continue Reading “Me and My Sony at Point Defiance!”

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”

Of Camera Woes and Cats and Birds

My favorite camera – the Sony RX10 my husband bought me almost 4 years ago – bit the dust. I can turn it on but after that everything is stuck – none of the controls work. It happened a few days ago when we… Continue Reading “Of Camera Woes and Cats and Birds”

Up in a Redwood Tree

Earlier this month on a very rainy day we went to Lincoln Park for a walk. We took the trail up to the top of the bluff and found shelter in a grove of Redwood trees. So did this little fella. Shared with Becky’s… Continue Reading “Up in a Redwood Tree”

Poulsbo, Port Ludlow and Hood Canal – a Trip in Glacier Blue

After returning from our getaway last week I noticed how many of my pictures were blue, blue, blue! So I thought they’d do nicely for this week’s Sunday Stills Photo Challenge, Glacier Blue. Our destination was Port Ludlow on Puget Sound which would be… Continue Reading “Poulsbo, Port Ludlow and Hood Canal – a Trip in Glacier Blue”

Profiles in Hummingbirds

Yesterday I showed you the majestic Bald Eagles who come from as far away as Alaska to feed on the salmon in the Skagit River. Today I show you their tiny majestic cousins – the Anna’s Hummingbirds – who come to feed year-round in… Continue Reading “Profiles in Hummingbirds”
