Focus on Hellebores

On a rainy day walk at Lake Wilderness Arboretum this week, I found Hellebores blooming and defying winter. (Perhaps I was too.) I think it’s time to plant some in my garden. Sharing with Cees Flower of the Day. ~ Susanne

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”

Benji and the Snow

It’s the third day and snow is still (unexpectedly) falling. Benji loves to go outside but this is too much even for him. Yesterday, he ventured out in the morning and after 20 minutes or so I found him in the driveway. After a… Continue Reading “Benji and the Snow”

About those Hummingbirds in the Snow

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”

And Hummingbirds, too!”

The Promised Snow Has Finally Arrived

It started with a fury overnight – tiny flakes of ice blown sideways. It’s falling still – larger and softer – more gently but determined – blanketing everything in white. The hummingbirds waited patiently while I brought them fresh nectar; I’d forgotten to bring… Continue Reading “The Promised Snow Has Finally Arrived”

A Day trip to Paradise with Moonrise Over Mt Rainier

Every trip to Mt Rainier promises something special and so it was on Monday as we headed south to Paradise. We arrived at the Nisqually Entrance to the Park, the only one open to vehicles year-round. We had lunch at Longmire where visitors had… Continue Reading “A Day trip to Paradise with Moonrise Over Mt Rainier”

Breathing Nature’s Fresh Air

During this strange Covid year we’ve had to be hypervigilant about the very air we breathe, wearing masks and distancing ourselves to avoid transmitting the insidious virus to each other. Thankfully we can breathe deeply in nature where no such prohibition exists. So come… Continue Reading “Breathing Nature’s Fresh Air”
