Autumn Garden -Master Gardener’s Demonstration Garden

October in Tri-Cities ended with golden sunshine and bold color. I took an autumn garden photo walk through the Master Gardener’s demonstration garden on the last day of the month. There were still many beautiful blossoms spreading their joy. Others had faded to autumn, but they revealed tiny seeds and buds promising their return with spring.

Enjoy the photos, and better yet, visit the garden in Kennewick, WA where you will see cheerful flowers, colorful leaves, bright berries, ornamental grasses and even an occasional flying insect. It’s located behind the Mid-Columbia Library. But hurry, because winter is marching closer by the day.

Oh Deer

White-Tailed Deer In A Montana Cherry Orchard

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could go no further than just a few steps outside your front door to see beautiful creatures such as these white-tailed deer? Well maybe not, if you’re a gardener. As a photographer though, I was happy to see these young bucks and does deer roaming nearby on a beautiful autumn day in Montana, just off the shore of Flathead Lake where I was visiting family.

The Bench Man

Time you enjoy wasting is NOT wasted time.

The Bench Man

The Bench Man

I saw this nice gentleman, the other day from across the park. I was there walking with my dogs at Howard Amon Park in Richland, Washington. He’s sitting under sycamore trees along the bank of the Columbia river. There is an empty bench very near, almost as if an open invitation to join him.

Just witnessing him there, enjoying his morning in solitude and complete tranquility, led me to the conclusion that I would benefit from spending more time on a park bench.



Let The Heavens Declare!

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
~Psalms 19:1

When the world feels upside down, I like to look up. The sky is an ever changing canvas, from night to day, from season to season. A multi-colored canvas painted with dramatic compositions and vistas as a constant reminder of the glory of God, the creator.

Spring Showers – Curtains!

Spring! It’s just over the horizon.

And with it comes red robins, fresh air, colorful new flowers, beautiful skies, honey bees buzzing, wind and rain.

No matter the forecast, you can enjoy spring showers every day of the year with my new SPRING SHOWERS collection of bathroom shower curtains.

They are made from 100 percent polyester fabric, and they include twelve holes at the top of the curtain for simple hanging from your own shower curtain rings. The total dimensions each are 71″ wide x 74″ tall.

Honeybee And Flowers

Honeybee And Flowers in February?

Thinking about honeybees and flowers in February.It’s wet, gray and gloomy this week in February. Never the less though, I’m thinking of summer and the return of the delicate flowers and busy honeybees.

I’ve been working on my fine art galleries, and this is one of my newest creations. I photographed this beautiful penstemon (also known as beardtongue) flower in the all-volunteer Master Gardener’s demonstration garden early last summer. The garden is located in Kennewick, WA.

I’ve treated the image with a bold brush stroke texture to enhance the vibrant color and details of the original photo.

This pretty little honeybee is available as a fine art print in my Etsy shop, and you can get there by simply clicking on the image.
