Shhh, I’m not actually typing here on Wordless Wednesday…but if you could scratch and sniff the computer, you’d get a wonderful whiff of the aroma I smell when around the potting bench. I’ll just pretend this isn’t an invasive plant for the moment.
Scarlet creeping thyme…but not very scarlet flowers. Could be mislabeled… Calendula Gaillardia Woodland painted petals While I love walking through our yard and garden at all times of the day, there’s always something different blooming, I think the evening walk throughs are my favorite. Particularly those when the sun is just down in a particular […]
We’re lucky that the area where we live is packed with frogs and toads. As dusk settles in the frog song escalates to new heights and sometime deep in the summertime it’ll be a cacophony of noise that we can hear inside the house. Someday I need to record it to share with y’all. Some […]

The best thing about walking through this slough was the generally it was fairly easy walking with little […]
