Hullo everyone!
Time for a belated ☕️

Freaking out a bit here... last night found (and killed) the second brown recluse in a fortnights time!

Professionals have been called 🕷

I have always loved the blues, even when they take on a purple hue. Here are some Veronica speedwell, an ancient Dwarf iris, and a sea of Ajuga.
I have since lost the speedwell, but the Ajuga proves to be a most hardy ground cover and looks lovely under my white dogwood. The dwarf iris patch continues to bloom after 30+ years, despite my failure to divide!

Pointed out by my curious cat, this unwelcome creature was sitting in my bathroom sink this morning, bold as brass. I thought they hid in dark places?!

Now I am on a semi panicked cleaning spree...

Wow! Great capture! Tho I have heard coyotes on our property many times, always late at night... I have never caught a glimpse!

Some friends in England were commenting on the fact that the butterflies seem to be missing this summer, and it dawned on me that I haven't seen any either (in North America) despite having planted several flowering shrubs this year, including a purple nanho butterfly bush.

Plenty of bumbles and hummingbirds, to my delight, but zero butterflies. Here are a few bees & bugs on petals, some from our Botanical Garden, and the Morning Primrose from my own garden.

Looking forward to watching this tonight! If it's half as brilliant as it'll be good fun. Love me a quirky indie-esque film!

I loved these shorts in 2010, but had no idea he went on to children's books and more. The trailer made me teary! 💕 I am so there

So for #FlowersOnFriday #CanadaDay edition- I used all native plants to remind us of what we owe to the earth we live on, red and white in a nod to the flag, and orange for the First Nations people still seeking redress for historical/ongoing wrongs.
To all #Canadians all #garden friends, and thoughtful people all over-- I hope you had a good day, lets celebrate the good and lend our hearts, voices and votes to the to the ongoing struggle for fairness in our systems and processes.

HA! My way is the best way! (for me, anyway
No surprise the banana bread way is the least healthy!

After Top Gun Maverick, we’ve been rewatching the Mission Impossibles… what a groovy tune!

Warning: Guaranteed ear worm! 🐛

I recently learned about BABYMOON and PUSH PRESENT. I wonder if I am out of touch, thinking the 'resignation generation' is despairingly self centered. I know all gens have fun trends, but it's so me, me, me that I really see little hope for the future.

Glad my time was sex, drugs, and rock and roll! This present day shit is too shallow 😉

Once upon a time garden memory-our tiny pepper harvest, our first green chilie, along with jalapeños, blue hyssop, peppermint, lemon and lime thyme, chamomile, rosemary, and my fav...patchouli ☮️

Up at 4:30 this morning and saw our beloved moon with Jupiter and Venus shining brightly 🖤🌙✨

I am forever trying to get a great iphoto (never do) gone are the days of my Nikons, tripods, and timed exposures!

Finally, my butterfly bush has blossomed and it exceeds expectations! Haven't seen a butterfly yet, but several hummingbirds and all the bumbles visit. I had plans to bring this indoors to winter, but now its size has squashed that idea.

Heard my first capacitor blow! The IT guy was right, it did sound like an M80! 🍒bomb

I’m used to seeing my husbands teeny tiny retro parts.. these are HAGRID sized!

I've finally finished Maze 82, Ramalina menziesii. This lichen is found growing on Western Hemlock trees in riparian areas here in Oregon. It actually seems to grow natural Möbius strips woven into big masses.

This maze took months longer to draw than I predicted. Any one brave enough to try to solve it will find it to be an extremely difficult maze. Some blind paths stretch all the way across the image.
