Stan & Joyce Orchard
Trying to figure it out since 1975.
Plants are blooming, pollinators are busy, nature is fascinating.
This little creature can be found lurking among the potted plants on our deck. Not at all bashful.
We finished getting it all in the shed today, ready for next season. May get another cord to be safe. Working with my grandson is an added bonus.
A little over an hour before sunrise, the moon, Saturn, and Jupiter brightened the sky over our humble Hobart home. Never tire of the view.
Our corner of the world has an abundance of plain, brown, short-eared rabbits. But this little guy hops to the beat of a different drummer, or thumper.
More fuzzy antlers and beautiful summer coat. This curious, early morning visitor seemed to say happy first day of summer as he passed by.
We hardly ever leave home, but we’ve been walking almost daily here. Today we stretched it out to a full two miles. She continues to amaze me.
The foliage along our road constantly changes. We see it up close on our daily walks. Earlier it was skunk cabbage. Now foxglove predominates.
They’re tiny, dark green, hard to find. But the plants are very healthy and at this rate we’ll be eating fresh tomatoes in June. That’s very early for us.
Some early morning visitors romped while I played around with capturing their images. Never ending entertainment.
