White Rose – FOTD August 12

A perfect white rose from our neighborhood. I must learn to use and practice using my macro setting for beautiful subjects like this.

Three Stages of Blackberry Fruits – FOTD August 11

This picture of blackberries was also from our hike. Right now the wild blackberries are ripening everywhere near us. We’ve been able to partake from vines in our neighborhood a few times over the last 2 weeks. It’s so refreshing to eat perfectly ripened, sweet berries.

Family Day Hike – Theler Wetlands

It was quite a rainy and cloudy weekend. We were happy we chose not to go camping but we were also looking for something fun to do outdoors with the kids. We decided to check out Theler Wetlands in Belfair, WA. I’ve never been and neither has our 2 younger children but my husband has been there. It was fairly quiet with a few families and individuals out walking or jogging the trails. We decided to take just a short tour around a small part of it to accommodate our 5 year old and myself (*wink – it’s been a while since I’ve done any exercise.)

 

It was neat trail. Perfect for families with small children. Lots of different trees and plants. There were art and informational kiosks about native species along the way.  There was also a big skeleton of a whale hanging from the ceiling of a shelter.

 

We were able to walk down a wooden pier and see the wetlands up close. It was low-tide so it was especially cool to see how deep the crevices ran in the marsh.

Someday I’d like to go back to extend our walk in towards the river side and hopefully catch some shots of birds with my camera. There’s no cost and no pass required to go on a hike there but there is a donation box to help with the upkeep and storm clean up.

The two pictures above are of the same gate just taken from different angles.

White Flower – FOTD August 10

This is either a Wild Carrot (Queen Anne’s Lace) or poisonous hemlock. I didn’t get a close enough look to gather which type it is. Both are noxious weeds to Washington State. It was found on our walk through Theler Wetlands in Belfair, WA. It’s quite pretty to look at against the dense, forest like greenery.

Pretty wet coneflowers from our garden yesterday. We had a dreary 2 days of rain and cloudy skies. Today we have wonderful sunshine. We love sunshine!

This quote is so fitting for me as I am figuring out what to do next after being a stay at home mom for so long. Working on it. My husband purchased “Now, Discover Your Strengths” by Marcus Buckingham & Donald O. Clifton, Ph.D. It is my next read.

Teenager Sunflower & Middle Age Sunflower – FOTD – August 8

These were both planted at the same time but one is fully bloomed and the other have yet to open. I love this time of the year! I have a few more planted in our front yard that I planted really late. Hoping they’ll grow quick enough to bloom before the REALLY rainy and windy weather sets in. I also hope the deer will not get to them.
