Cactus – FOTD October 9

This is my tiny cactus in a 2 in. pot. I got to play with my macro lens and tripod today. I think this is probably the second time I’ve used my macro lens. Slowly learning a little bit each day.

String of Bananas – FOTD Sept. 18

I haven’t been outside as much because of all the smoke from the fires. So I took some pictures of my indoor plants. This is one of my newer additions.

We thankfully got some rain today. I hope and pray that those affected by the fires can find some relief soon. Twenty-twenty has surely been a shit-storm. I’m really looking forward to some holiday cheer. Yes, I’m one of those people. Ha!

Happy Monday! Critter Pictures at Potlatch State Park in Washington

Camping finds.

Little crab with an “X” on it’s back hiding among the rocks.

Banded Alder Borer Beetle. Odd to see him hanging with the sea life.

Looks like this dried up clam missed going into someone’s cooking pot.

Lovely Lavender

We were able to enjoy the lavender fields at Graymarsh Farm. You cut your own bunch but we opted to purchase already cut bunches that they had available. They smell terrific!

Our Visit to the Tulip Festival – FOTD

Yay! We finally made it to the Tulip Festival for the first time. We have lived here in the Pacific Northwest (Washington State) for over 20 years and I can finally check the “Visit Tulip Festival” box on my bucket list.

It was the usual rainy day for Washington and most of the tulips were still not in bloom in Skagit County but the flowers that were in bloom, including daffodils, were amazing to see. We were very happy to make it over despite the chilly weather. Here are some of the pictures I was able to capture during our visit to Roozengaard in Mount Vernon, WA.

Our daughter wanted jumped from one flower to the next, not really taking in the different varieties of tulips that were available for our eyes. She just loved the colors of all the “pretty flowers”.

Our son on the other hand is much older and took his time to observe the different flowers. He was even able to capture some of his own photos with his phone. At times he seemed really interested but for most teenage boys looking at flowers are not at the top of their “Spring Break” check-list. *wink*

What a beautiful sight. I can only imagine what it looks like when the rest of the tulips are in bloom. We decided we’d love to go back again. Hopefully next year… and the next… and the next.

Tips for our next visit…

  1.  Watch the weather closely.
  2.  Remember to bring rain boots. Our daughter had fun in the puddles.
  3.  Plan for mid-April visit.
  4.  Stay a little longer to check out other attractions nearby, including the Outlet Mall. *wink*

Note: This would make a wonderful sisters, mother & daughter, or girlfriends trip!
