The Peonies Have Started!

June 24

For the past few weeks I’ve felt like a little kid happily anticipating Christmas. All spring I look for my peonies to start blooming. I’m crazy for them!

This is the first plant to bloom. I should have some other colors come along before too long.

I like the paper-y petals. There are so many subtle color contained in them!

I didn’t realize how complicated the structure within is.

Early Spring Wildflowers – Jack In the Pulpit

May 28

These are one of those plants that make me marvel at nature’s strange adaptations. The flowers are contained under the hood. I can’t imagine how or why the plant evolved as it did!

Early Spring Wildflowers – Purple Pretties

May 26

I’ve been busy designing new patterns, but they’re not yet ready for prime time. In the meantime, I thought you might enjoy some wildflower photos. I’ll post one or two¬†every few days.

Here’s a field of purple pretties. I don’t know what they’re called. If you know these, please leave a comment!

California Clouds

August 14

California is a special place. Over the next few months I will interrupt the knitting photos to post random scenics. I hope you enjoy them!

It’s unusual for us to get big fluffy clouds in our neck of the woods.

San Simeon State Park

December 7

Thank you to everyone who commented on my blogiversary posts. It was fun celebrating with my blog readers. I appreciate you all!

You know how much I love nature. Here are some shots from a hike on the east side of the San Simeon State Park in the Central Coast area of California.

While the beach is nice, I enjoy the peaceful riparian habitat as well.

Chipmunks

May 10

For the past several weeks, I’ve watched a mama chipmunk dash in and out of her underground nest with goodies to feed to her young. The babies finally emerged to explore their world.

Is it safe to come out now?

The children stay close to Mom while they check out their new surroundings.

Baby Time

April 3

This gal has been hanging out on our lawn a lot lately. I think she’ll be giving birth very soon! The other day her belly was moving around a lot – she was either breathing heavily or her baby (s) are kicking.

Frost!

January 9

The recent Polar Vortex brought beautiful frost formations to my windows. I was mesmerized, seeing trees, birds and even a flower garden in them. What do you see in them?
