Sundew, drosera capensis

I love my little sundew plant. It’s a carnivorous plant that eats fruit flies and soil gnats. A bog plant, so likes to sit in water in the outer pot, and you must never fertilize as the little bugs is all the food it wants. Can you see a speck or two of bugs it’s feasting on right now? When it gets warmer there will be more fruit flies for it.

Sundew drosera capensis very happy after being repotted.

Baby bird

My carport has at least one new occupant. Mama (or papa?) bird looked like a dark-eyed junco. Small bird with black head, brown on top of body. Hubby reached way up to snap this.

January in California

Here’s a little video clip of a January trip to Sonoma County, CA a few years ago. Scenic barn! Live oak! Birdsong!

And a still from the same scene. I wish you a scenic 2020.

Sundog and wind turbines

Driving home from the middle of the state (WA), we saw a sundog along with the huge wind turbines.

Can you see the faint rainbow in the clouds?

Seattle Puget Sound sunset

From my photo archives, a scenic summer sunset down at the waterfront in Seattle, with the Olympic Mountains across the water. The scene is so peaceful but yet so lively, to me.

Driftwood at Elwha beach

Visiting the mouth of the Elwha River in Washington with my family, where the dam removal four years ago has made huge differences to the ecosystem already, we were curious about some  driftwood creations on the beach.

What’s in there?
