The Salmon are Running and it’s Beautiful to Behold!

One of my favorite things about living in Renton is seeing the salmon return to the Cedar River each fall. After spending several years in the Pacific Ocean they return to the rivers and streams of their birth to spawn. Coho, Chinook and Sockeye… Continue Reading “The Salmon are Running and it’s Beautiful to Behold!”

Yesterday in the Garden

I came home yesterday after a very busy week and had a few minutes before I needed to start dinner. So I grabbed my camera and went out to the backyard where I found my new dahlias in bloom – fuchsias – the most… Continue Reading “Yesterday in the Garden”

Yellowstone in Color

What can I say about Yellowstone National Park that hasn’t been said before? That I was thrilled to make another trip – our 7th, but who’s counting? – and it was the best yet! We were desperate to travel and a road trip to… Continue Reading “Yellowstone in Color”

What’s In My Garden?

Cats Tiger and Benji believe the backyard is their kingdom and who am I to tell them otherwise? Birds I dream of a world where cats and birds live together in peace. Until then I keep an eye on both. Bees and Herbs I’m… Continue Reading “What’s In My Garden?”

Looking for Burlywood

Looking for Bugs in My Garden

Last week I showed you a mama wren feeding a bug to her young. This week I learned the Sunday Stills theme is ‘Bugs’ so I went looking for more and found – Moths Bumble Bees Honey Bees But are they true bugs? I… Continue Reading “Looking for Bugs in My Garden”

Opening Sunflowers

I love sunflowers but don’t grow any in my garden – maybe I should change that next year. In the meantime I love coming across them as we did last week at one of the lavender farms in Sequim, these in various states of… Continue Reading “Opening Sunflowers”

Hike to Magnificent Second Beach

I don’t use the word ‘magnificent’ lightly. Bob had heard of Second Beach for many years but whenever we were in the area the parking lot was already full so we’d pass on by to the next beach. And let me say you don’t… Continue Reading “Hike to Magnificent Second Beach”

Under the Trees in my Garden

For this week’s Sunday Stills challenge I thought I’d take you on a tour of my backyard garden much of which lies under the shade of giant Douglas Fir trees. When we moved to our house a few years ago the backyard was rather… Continue Reading “Under the Trees in my Garden”
