It has become more springlike and warm (with an astounding 89*F. [31*C.] day yesterday — glad that was a one-off) ... but this afternoon a rain washed the…

I love tulips. (One of my many TBR [to be read] books is "Tulipomania" — which looks to be quite good.) So sad that in another month they will all be gone. Here…

I have been a bit spotty with grabbing my camera, so sorry for the lapse. Here are two photos. The first is of an ant toiling. It amazes me what huge loads…

We have a wind warning for later today and I am fearful — beside the usual worries about wind — that all my newly-blossomed tulips will lose their heads. As I…

I'm so very happy my good friend challenged me to 30 days of photos (which I really have honored...though I've not posted daily: Lessons are being Learnt). For…

I was rifling through my fabrics to find the right one for my next project, loose-fitting Japanese-style slacks described to me as mompe — for working in the…

It's still raining off and on, but I continue my 30-day challenge. Yesterday I found my analog macro lens and am relearning proper depth of field (so much to…

Yesterday I walked to the Post Office to pick up my mail (now in 24-hour quarantine). It's not unusual to see herds of Canada geese in local parks or on…

I'm fortunate enough to have walking onions (also known as Egyptian onions, I think) in my garden during this lockdown period, and the taste is a pure delight.…

Two photos today. The first is inspired by Netboxda!'s post from earlier today. We, too, are excited by our VW bus — though he's not in the sharp condition he…

Today I post two (in my attempt to stay true to my 30-day challenge). The first seemed to me to be not unlike a map of a hitherto unknown continent. (Vaguely…

Continuing day 2 of my maybe-30-day-photo-challenge, here's a close-up of a Romeo Cherry in its nascent beauty. Behind is tan/brown (the swing) and beyond that…

I am in voluntary (mostly) self-isolation due to the COVID19. Happily, I don't feel ill nor do I test for having the virus, but "sheltering in place" is the…

It's been an exceptionally mild summer to this point. Early July [as I took these photos, 5 July] and no string of 100(F.) degrees plus days. Everyone (who…
