Free Art for the Taking

Free Art for the Taking

Sometimes I’m really ridiculously proud of something I’ve created. And that pride leads to me being a little obnoxious. Maybe a lot obnoxious, depending on how much you like me (or don’t). In this case, I took a photo of a flower out in the backyard, and within an hour it was up on my [...]

Chives and Bees, Chives and Bees!

A couple of months ago, I got my big girl camera. A Canon Rebel T1i and oh, people. This thing is fun. I haven't done much with it yet. I can tweak here and there, but mostly I put my budget-friendly and so-worth-the-money 50mm f/1.8 lens on and just snap away. I can't wait to [...]

We're hardly San Diego, but we don't usually spend too much time below freezing. The past few days, we've experienced our first morning frosts of the [...]

The Garden’s Last Breaths

Now that it's October, I can no longer remain in denial. Fall is here. What a terrific summer it was, though. We had amazing sunny weather here in Seattle, from June on. The gardening season was phenomenal. We couldn't have picked a better year for our rookie garden. But it's time for our little garden [...]
