This is the first year I’ve found squash bugs bugging me and my squash plants. It turns out though, that the paper wasps from a nearby nest love to eat baby squash bugs. So after rubbing the remaining eggs from under the leaves, not another squash bug was to be found the rest of the […]

Beauty In The Mid-Columbia

Horse Heaven Hills

Beautiful scenery abounds year round in Tri-Cities Mid-Columbia region of Eastern Washington state. I feel very fortunate to live in the Northwest. Drama in the sky, orchards and vineyards, three rivers converging, treeless mountains, shrub steppe, wildlife and the refuges they live in are just a few of the perks, if you appreciate nature’s beauty. […]


Prosser, Washington Panoramic View at Twilight

Mount Adams Sunset

I ventured out recently to photograph Pan-Starrs Comet, which was forecasted to appear that evening at twilight, just to the left of where the sun set. I found a nice high spot on a hill above Prosser, Washington which I thought would be a perfect lookout. Well, I never did see that comet. Maybe it […]

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nothing Gold Can Stay

My garden is still growing, as is my sense of dread as first frost creeps nearer. I will miss it so, and I’m already daydreaming of next spring and new life coming out of winter’s bare earth. Like this:Like Loading…


Summer Breeze & Busy Bees In The Demonstration Garden

Bees & Lavendar

I’m not a master of gardening, but I’ve been participating in the Benton-Franklin Master Gardeners program this year, and I’ve learned so much. Mostly how much there is still to learn. I have really enjoyed photographing at different times the beautiful demonstration garden next to the Mid-Columbia library in Kennewick. All the work is performed […]


Is it Spring Yet?

The holidays are now behind us, and the new year ahead. Spring still feels so far away yet. Will my new goLITE (Christmas present from Hubby) be enough to pull me through the gray and dreary days between me and the brighter days of spring and summer? One of my favorite places to wander locally […]
