Stan & Joyce Orchard
Trying to figure it out since 1975.
Never tire of watching these little critters do their thing.
This little thing has been a busy bee and then some.
While we humans are freaking out over this unprecedented heatwave here in the U.S. Pacific Northwest, our cold-tolerant gardenias are loving it.
One of many small creatures who share our deck garden. Staying cool under the shade sail as the 2021 heat wave intensifies.
Never tire of watching these critters.
Been thinking about mowing this field. Starting to get a bit overgrown. But lately some of our deer friends have been resting in that same spot. So, mowing can wait.
Making slow but steady progress on our 16 x 24 hoop house. This guy and a smaller friend wandered through to check it out. So far, so good.
Ran to the store this morning and had to wait for this doe and her newborn to cross the road. Both were still wobbly.
Love this time of year. The colorful flowers, verdant scenery, and our favorite spring time sign: the return of antlers to our deer and elk friends. Velvety.
After a few years of researching, we finally got started on our hoop house. Biggest issue to this point: our ground is so hard, so many rocks and clay, it is like concrete. Excited that it’s actually happening.
