Summertime and the living is . . . busy!

The wheat turns more golden every day. golden wheat Rivers of wheat dot the Skagit Valley.pastel wheat Fern leaves create elegant patterns in my garden.fern patterns Wheat is ready for harvest.wheat and poplar Hosta leaves collect raindrops and display them like jewels.hosta I haven't posted much here lately. The truth is, once summer finally arrived in the Pacific Northwest I have been doing what everyone else around here has been doing - spending every possible moment soaking up the sunshine! We wait so long for it to appear each year, no one dares let the opportunity to get out and enjoy it slip by. In fact, this is the only place I've ever lived where a sunny day is a valid excuse to skip work. Seriously.

So, I have not been inclined to sit at the computer - to edit images I've shot, to upload new images to this site, or to write a blog post. That has to wait until the drizzle returns.

In the meantime, I do have some photos on exhibit (and for sale) at Rexville Grocery this month. I also have a selection of notecards for sale there. I've just ordered a new and different batch of notecards, so I'll post something about those later in the summer. In the meantime, here's a sampling of the things I've been looking at this month.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the pleasures of summer here are the pots of tuberous begonias I have on my front porch. Little splashes of color all summer long. begonia Nothing says summer like a splash of yellow poppies by the side of the road.yellow-2
