Angel Daisies in June

Years ago I gave my sister some seeds from my Shasta daisies and she grew them into a huge daisy garden. “Angel Daisies” features a whitewashed angel she had placed in the garden of daisies and she looks right at home. I don’t know what she did to get her daisies to grow so fervently, […]

In the absence of being able to pick […]

Be Different!

If you’re going to stand out in a crowd, do it well. Just one white crocus among all the purples in my neighbor’s little garden. It appeared on its own a few years ago—this clump of crocuses were all purple for years, and I have the photos to prove it because I’ve photographed them just […]

Frosted, Fairyland

When I saw the snow that morning, just an inch or two carefully blanketing each branch and twig in the tree outside my window I knew what my destiny would be if the snow stopped and the sun came out. It did, and I headed for the Panhandle Trail, on foot just planning about an […]

Dramatic Light, Just the Right Moment

When I saw the snow that morning, just an inch or two carefully blanketing each branch and twig in the tree outside my window I knew what my destiny would be if the snow stopped and the sun came out. It did, and I headed for the Panhandle Trail, on foot just planning about an […]
