Catching Up

As happens every Spring, the outdoors start calling and I spend less and less time in front of the keyboard. But, I have been dragging my picture-taking device with me into the woods and into the garden, so I’ll share my adventures from the last few weeks visually instead.


The biggest tree in the forest. Yeah, I’m a size queen. šŸ™‚

  1. Lovely pictures! The tree is awesome. I don’t spend as much time at the computer this time of year either. More fun being outside, and taking pictures of all the plants. I have an old vine of Halls Honeysuckle growing by my back door and does it ever smell heavenly when it’s blooming.
