Silence – On Hood Canal

When life is hectic and I’m looking for quiet I remember Hood Canal. Where clouds like memories rest low on the mountains and mingle with smoke from wood stoves. Where forests are fresh and damp, and oysters cover the beaches. I close my eyes… Continue Reading “Silence – On Hood Canal”

Gulls in Gray and White – at Coulon Park

For this week’s Sunday Stills Challenge, I thought of ‘seagulls’ and went to look for them yesterday at Coulon Park. It’s one of their favorite places – mine too – and it was a beautiful day for a walk. They were out in great… Continue Reading “Gulls in Gray and White – at Coulon Park”

Favorite Nature Shots from My Own Backyard – 2022

It’s awfully hard to pick “favorites” since I love to take pictures of the birds and the bees and there are literally hundreds (dare I say thousands?) to choose from! That said, I’ll start with a Northern Flicker drilling a hole in the snag… Continue Reading “Favorite Nature Shots from My Own Backyard – 2022”

Looking for Cobalt and Finding it in Puget Sound

Who doesn’t love cobalt blue? So I went looking for some in my archives for the last color challenge of the year at Sunday Stills. That should be easy, right? The best skies are cobalt blue, and the sky is everywhere, after all! Ah,… Continue Reading “Looking for Cobalt and Finding it in Puget Sound”

This was not our first trip to DC, but it was the most amount of time we spent in the city to date, exploring the monuments, memorials, and museums on the National Mall.

I’m still on DC time so I woke up early thinking of the hummingbirds. I went out in my robe and boots to bring in the frozen feeders, returning them outside an hour later. The hummingbirds came immediately and rewarded me by posing. I… Continue Reading “My Beautiful Anna’s Hummingbirds”

Back with the Birds of Oahu

It was just last month that we were in Oahu enjoying the sunshine, beaches, and swaying palm trees…. and yes, the birds! If you follow this blog, you’ll know that I’m an avid birdwatcher and I love birds of all colors, sizes and persuasions.… Continue Reading “Back with the Birds of Oahu”

Bogged Down in Squares at Shadow Lake Bog

Not too far from our home in Renton is an ancient bog, surrounded by forest, carpeted with moss and decorated with magic mushrooms. The trail and boardwalk through the bog is short but marvelous so I thought it would be perfect for this week’s… Continue Reading “Bogged Down in Squares at Shadow Lake Bog”

Mysterious in Oahu – a Photo Challenge

After pondering ‘mysterious’ for this week’s Sunday Stills Challenge I found some photos from our recent trip to Oahu that will work. See what you think. One morning I woke before sunrise to see the moon cast an eerie glow on the Ala Wai… Continue Reading “Mysterious in Oahu – a Photo Challenge”

Postcards from Oahu

I told my husband before we left that I wouldn’t be blogging and I believed it; he did not. So as not to let him down, I thought I’d at least send some postcards to share the aloha from Oahu. Words will come in… Continue Reading “Postcards from Oahu”
