Dilapidated Trucks or Reclaimed Relics?

“A building or object in a state of disrepair or ruin as a result of age or neglect.” Yes, it’s another photo challenge from Sunday Stills and I didn’t plan on participating this week as I couldn’t find anything dilapidated. That is, until I… Continue Reading “Dilapidated Trucks or Reclaimed Relics?”

Garden Flowers Up Close and Personal with the Bees

As summer wanes the flowers in my garden are looking rather spent. Still, they are full of color and attracting bees. I sat and watched them recently as they diligently worked the remaining blossoms Sharing with Sunday Stills, Macro. ~ Susanne

A Background in Apricot

I love all shades of yellow and orange but trying to find the color apricot for this week’s Sunday Stills has been daunting. “Warm yellowish-orangish hue.” Well, I guess that nails it down! 😉 Here’s Benji willing the closet door to open so he… Continue Reading “A Background in Apricot”

Staycation or Vacation? Yes, Please!

This week’s Sunday Stills Challenge explores the topic, so I thought I’d jump in with some vacation and staycation pictures taken during the Covid era.

The Ultimate Road Trip – Down the Oregon Coast

My dear hubby and traveling companion mentioned recently that he’d like to take a trip down the Oregon Coast. “It’s been a while,” he said. I laughed. Actually, it hasn’t. We went twice last year; and every year before as long as I can… Continue Reading “The Ultimate Road Trip – Down the Oregon Coast”

Favorite Beaches in Washington? Rialto and Long Beach!

For this week’s Sunday Stills Challenge I considered the beaches in Washington and decided to share two of them with you – Rialto and Long Beach.

Summertime in the Garden

Finally! The summer solstice arrived this week bringing sunshine and the hottest days of the year to the sun-starved, rain-drenched Northwest. It was a busy day in the garden, but not for me, I just sat and took it all in – the birds… Continue Reading “Summertime in the Garden”

Memories of Pink Rhododendrons

I like pink in small doses offset by other colors. Like rhododendrons found in the woods. Washington state’s flower, coast rhododendrons thrive under the dappled shade of forests, like these on Hood Canal. In fact, pink rhododendrons remind me of childhood trips to Hood… Continue Reading “Memories of Pink Rhododendrons”
