Daffodil Bud


My husband and I purchased our first home back in October. It has been interesting already to see what plants have started to pop up, since we have no idea what, if anything, is planted in our yard. This daffodil, located right outside of my front door, is only days from blooming.

Sunset Over Salish Ponds



As I mentioned in yesterdays post, the temperatures have been really warm the past few days, which is perfect for a walk at sunset. This photo of Monday evenings sundown was taken at Salish Ponds in Fairview, just a mile or so from my home.

Duck Pond at the Golden Hour


The cold icy weather that we had in my neighborhood last Sunday only lasted that one day. Come Monday, the temperatures shot up a good 20-25 degrees. My son and I took advantage of the warm air and went on a walk to a nearby duck pond just as the sun was entering the golden hour before sunset.

Hiemal


Although March as begun, the weather reminded us on Sunday that winter is not over yet. Here is one last photo I took of the effects of the storm. These icy branches are just an example of the hiemal scene in my neighborhood that day. I loved their color and textures.

Ice Returns


Yesterday morning I woke up to another wintery scene outside of my front door. We were lucky, because while the ice covered everything in my neighborhood, once I went out and about and headed away from the gorge, everything had melted.
