This scene might just be the backyard to you. It is for my son's family living in Washington State at the Canadian border. But to me it may as well be Mars. I know I am just so "gee whiz" over the simplest things, but you must remember that I'm from the provinces of New Mexico!
I've been around. I've seen the world. And I'm still amazed at this beautiful green and alien environment. A stroll around the "yard" while the steaks are on the barbie holds a world of fascination.
This rooster. . .
And this one-eyed hen. . .
recently produced exactly one chick. Bravo! But the lady of the house fears that it's another rooster.
This makes me want to order a country meadow from my local nursery when I get back home to the desert.
Picking Rainier cherries.
My son called this flower a Rocket plant. He says in Alaska they say that when the flower blooms all the way to the top winter is over.
Today was a good day for the bees. We had lots of sunshine!
Now this I could live without!
Having a wonderful time! Wish you were here.
