  • 1-10 Project: 4 Pink Poppy Petals

    This is what I consider a very special image. I remember walking into my front garden and seeing a pink glow down near the ground as the sun was just rising over the hillside. I dropped down into a crouch to stare in rapt amazement at this beautiful littl…

  • 1-10 project: 3 Bees in a Poppy

    This picture shows a bit of the chaos which happened every single morning during the entire month of July. The garden hummed with bees, they were everywhere! I never saw so many at once! They are still visiting every day, but there aren't as many flowers…

  • J is for Jaunty Jonquils (+ 5 more inset pictures!)

    (5 more pictures above in notes! :D) I used to think that a Jonquil was any kind of daffodil, but I found out that it's actually a specific type. In truth, "Jonquil" is an accepted term for "daffodil in some places, so I was very tempted to open my selec…

  • G is for Golden Glow (15 pictures in notes on the image!)

    (15 more pictures in notes on the image, all are clickable! Enjoy the show!) One of our first wildflowers is the bright and cheerful Buttercup! I discovered that we have several species here, but this one, the Western Buttercup, is the most common. Every…

    Note of Joy! Thank you all for the comments and favs, this is my very first #1 Explore! The very first thing I want to do is apologize to everyone for disapearing completely. I'm very sorry and I hope that you will understand. I needed a complete break f…


  • 341/365: "There is no definition of beauty, but when you can see someone's spirit coming through, something unexplainable, that's beautiful to me." ~ Liv Tyler

    2 more pictures in notes above ! :) We didn't get any new snow, but it's so cold that none of it melted, so I spent some time walking around our meadow looking for some fun pictures! I found this leaf laying in the snow just as the upper forest begins…

  • 331/365: "We live only to discover beauty. All else is a form of waiting." ~ Kahlil Gibran

  • 316/365: "The past is a ghost, the future a dream, and all we ever have is now." ~ Bill Cosby

    3 more pictures and a note above ! :) I woke up to the sound of rain pattering on the windows and drumming on the roof and I couldn't help but smile. We aren't having a very wet Fall this year, and with the decreased humidity and moisture, there haven't…


  • Colorful Black Oak Leaf

    Would you jus LOOK at this leaf?!! WOW!!! I got images of seven gorgeous leaves today, though I'm only going to share this one tonight. I really hope that you don't get too tired of these "fall flowers" because I cannot get enough of them! The colors, the…

  • Fuzzy Fly Landing on Star Thistle

    I totally deserve awards for getting non-blurry pictures of this fly! Honestly, this small fly was all over the map! It was flitting from one blossom to the next, swooping in, hovering for a nano-second, and swooping out, and then it would do it again man…

    2 more pictures in notes above! :) The smoke from the wildfires in southern Oregon has reduced a great deal from the rain we've had, and this morning when I went out, I was captivated by the warm glowing light over our meadows. I love the way the sun mak…

  • Heart of a Zinnia: Star Power!

    1 more picture in a note above! :) One of the things I adore about many species of flowers is the fact that they have "flowers within flowers". In the center of the main flower, you will find a number of tiny flowers! I thought it would be fun to share…
