Surprised by Snow

I’ve wanted to drop by the SquareOdds challenge before it’s over but I’ve been hard pressed to find anything odd! But after our mostly balmy weather the last few weeks during which time I accomplished a bit of spring gardening, it seemed odd to… Continue Reading “Surprised by Snow”

A Challenge in White

Just when I thought it was time to put away my snowy pictures, along came a photo challenge in White from Sunday Stills. What could I do? Share a few more from our recent snowstorm, for starters! But enough with the snow! I’m ready… Continue Reading “A Challenge in White”

Snow on Berries

An ordinary garden shrub sits outside my front door which makes it an easy object of my photography. On the first day of our winter storm in December, I went outside to capture the snow as it began to fall and collect on the… Continue Reading “Snow on Berries”

Happy Hummers and First Monday of 2022!

When I woke this morning it was 18 degrees outside. The snow was deep, dry and sparkly and the moon was still out. I was waiting for the day to fully dawn before putting the hummingbird feeders back outside. I knew they depended on… Continue Reading “About those Hummingbirds in the Snow”

The Promised Snow Has Arrived! And Hummingbirds, too!

It was only a tease yesterday, the promise of a White Christmas for those who care about such things. But this morning the snow appeared, clothing the evergreens with its beauty and providing joy in the Great Northwest! I bundle up and venture outside… Continue Reading “The Promised Snow Has Arrived! And Hummingbirds, too!”

The Weather of 2021

There was record breaking weather everywhere this year, but I’ll focus on my own little corner of the world – the Greater Seattle area of the Pacific Northwest. It started out normal enough. In January there was pounding rain and sunshine, with balmy temperatures… Continue Reading “The Weather of 2021”

A Medley of Frosty

I wanted to participate in this week’s Sunday Stills Christmas Song Lyric Challenge and went looking for the holly and the ivy. Unfortunately, they were not full grown so I had to settle for these berries in my garden. Then I considered other Christmas… Continue Reading “A Medley of Frosty”
