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.

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.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
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.
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.

SPRING SHOWER CURTAIN COLLECTION – Getting clean was never this much fun!
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.
Meet Mr. Snakefly. He showed up in my flowerbed of pink dianthus the other day, and very kindly posed for my camera for quite some time. If you see one of these guys in your yard or garden, treat him kindly, as he is one of the “good guys” in the world of bugs. He is predatory in the larvae and in the adult stages, which means he likes to eat aphids and other destructive insects in your garden. Here’s some more interesting information with facts you may not have known about this interesting little creature.

And just look what I discovered yesterday! A cute and very tiny katydid nymph enjoying a moment in the sun. I noticed him sitting on a green tomato leaf in my garden. The poor little guy looks like he’s lost half of an antennae, but that didn’t seem to phase him a bit. He has a very funny and cute way of walking with those gangly (and hairy) legs.
