Garden Window

Spring happenings in our garden window this year.

Seattle Winter

fullsizeoutput_4938I can’t take full credit for this photo. My wife took it after a night of snow. I’m guilty of plagiarism, sort of. I spiced up the photo a bit in PS Express.

Anyway, looking East from our deck, towards the Cascade Mts., which are not really visible.

Kitsch

I drive by this house from time to time to see the latest additions, It’s interesting that, as much stuff that is displayed, I’ve never seen any evidence of tampering or vandalism.

Shy Hummingbird

I have a couple of hummingbird feeders just outside my backdoor. I can walk out and watch, without my camera, as the hummingbird partakes of the nectar I blend. If I bring my camera out and just wait, patiently, he/she will either not show up or hides on the backside of the feeder. You can just see his tail feathers in one of the images.

I’m determined to get a shot of this shy or perhaps, sly guy. He really does keep an eye on me while I’m watching him; he’ll stop drinking ( or whatever it is they do) and peek over at me. He’s really diligent about watching his surroundings.

 

How to Decorate your Electric Meter

Turning ‘found objects’ into questionable art via the light meter on our house. I have been working on this project for years, as you can tell by the care I took in placing the objects as well as the non-thematic nature of the piece.

Enjoy!

Version 2

I posted this on FB and Instagram on Tuesday. Seemed like a good idea to post on the blog, as well.

Blowin’ in the Wind

Just a few blocks from our house this view presents itself. This view is looking southwest along Marine View Drive and Puget Sound. When I took daily walks I would walk along this section of Marine View Drive. One of the perks of living where we do; just a few minutes walk from a pretty cool view. Hasn’t changed much in the 60 years I have lived in Arbor Heights.

Including a Bush

Since I have been posting flowers from our yard I thought it only fair I post an image of a bush. This bush has been trimmed and shaped by our son in law, who is an Arborists who works for Seattle Parks. This image is actually the first phase of the trim. He finished the trimming last week so now it is sort of a combination bonsai and topiary. This bush image was taken on my phone. The completed topiary will be shot with a ‘real’ camera :-).

Our Garden Window

 

Since my range of traveling has been limited to home or close to home ( due to health issues: broken bone in right foot, fractured 8th rib and a blood clot causing edema in my lower left leg-phew!) and not in the usual interesting places I find to shoot, I have some images here from our garden window. I love plants from the desert SW, and besides, they easily adjust to my black thumb!

Last Rose

Two images of the last rose from our rose bush this season. Since I posted these two images on Facebook I thought I should go ahead and post them on the blog as well. I have always had trouble with red roses, but I think this time I finally got something worth saving.DSC_3045-001 DSC_3048-001
