OK Guys. I have been very remiss with shooting images of my garden. With one cat that was sick and another cat that had been injured twice in two weeks, and is now minus a nail and plus a bandage. We have had quite a time with the vet....and the vet bill. This is about ...
What a wonderful we had to an Olive Mill for some Olive Oil Tasting, and tasting other goodies too. The view is spectacular and the weather was perfect. And the gardens and wildflowers were lovely. This was a perfect day.
It is the start of the Iris season and I am getting my First Irises blooming in my garden. Come with me to take a look at these early blooms in my new Iris bed. I’m testing out the new Macro Lens for my camera on them.

Visiting friends and family in Sunny Southern California, we had a wonderful time in Los Angeles. Warmer than the Pacific Northwest, the Summer Flowers are already blooming. It was nice to see everyone and to see the lovely gardens. Come along with me as I take a walk.

This is the Best Year Ever For Our Hellebores. My collection of about twenty Hellebores have larger flowers than ever and have so many of them that they are putting on quite a show. Why not take a look at the lovely Hellebores I have blooming right now in my garden.
My photos of the Seattle Flower And Garden Show were all blurry, so here are some photos of my Bad Kitties. This time looking to get on the roof. Also featured are a pair of squirrels getting ready to set up housekeeping for the spring. Let’s hear it for more baby squirrels.
I am In Search Of Spring. This is the time of year that I crave. The long gray days of winter are starting brighten and bulbs and shrubs are beginning to show signs of life. Come and see what Signs of Spring I have found in my garden and what Spring Flowers are beginning to show themselves.
I have three Cats In The Garden. But this post is just a few photos of my Orange Boy, Raja. Come and take a look at how cute and “innocent” he is.
During a week of freezing temperatures and Freezing Fog, we have had a lot of frost near our home. Nothing prepared me for the Winter Wonderland we saw in a neighboring town with Hoar Frost, otherwise called Radiation Frost. The very moist Freezing Fog had deposited a layer of white on everything that looked like snow, but wasn’t. Come and take a look at some of these amazing photos.
I Couldn’t Wait To Buy Seeds. With a new raised bed to plant out with Vegetable Seeds. I have been anxious to plan my vegetable beds and have been scouring Seed Catalogs. Hadn’t yet received the one from Territorial Seeds, so I went online and bought. Do you think that Spring will start earlier now that I have my seeds?
It is a Frosty January Morning and I was able to get quite a few frosty pictures of my leaves and plants covered with the heavy frost that descended upon us with the freezing fog. Come and take a look.
A beautiful January Sunrise at my home in the Pacific Northwest. I had this great opportunity to take Photos At Sunrise this morning and would like to share. Take a look.
Taking time Remembering 2012. This has been a truly incredible year with my trip of a lifetime to Italy and Venice, Florence and Rome. On to Israel to spend Passover with my son and some time being a tourist. And my nieces wedding and a trip to Yosemite in August. Come with me as I look back and see some of the wonderful sights.
Here are my best wishes for everyone for a Merry Christmas, Happy Winter and Happy Solstice. Hope that yours is Merry and Bright!
Christmas Table Runner Finished, at last. Take a look at this latest addition to my housemate’s Christmas Decorations. I quilted a Table Runner for her after having made table runners for both Hanukkah and Rosh HaShanah for me. I thought it was time I made something nice for her holidays too. She liked how it turned out. Come take a look.
Winter is here. Once the holidays are over and a peaceful winter replaces the shiny lights, how do we now maintain Winter Interest In The Garden. You don’t have to settle for dead and brown, there are Winter Blooming Plants to lift the spirits. Here are some of my Winter Bloomers and a few more to give you some ideas. Take a look.
