Spring in Portland

I know, I know, June is summer, not spring. But I can’t help but wish tulips were still in bloom! I took these photos at the start of April, and it there was this amazing two-week window of perfect blooms. From my backyard to the Portland Japanese Gardens, there was color everywhere, and the air smelt of flowers. Now the last vestiges of spring seem to just be . . . allergies. Read More

Klamath Birding Pt 2

This post should really be titled “Klamath Wildlife”, as part 2 of my trip looks at the unexpected wildlife that were present along with the birds. These were all such phenomenal sightings, especially seeing a weasel with its prey! Definitely not something you see every day.  Read More

Welcome to the PNW

So it’s been a while. . .  Return from England. Stopover (to be continued). Explore Washington for a while. Head home. Pack up all my stuff. Drive 21 ft U-haul for 5+ hours. Unpack. Finally have all of my stuff in one place and not 2 or 3. Holidays. Trips. Work.

Yes so time definitely got away from me. But here’s to the New Year and new explorations. I’m back to the Pacific Northwest. And I’m so excited for what that will bring and to share with you.

New Year, new website photos, new shop items, and a bunch of new blogs headed your way.

Welcome to the PNW!
