Fear not!

“And the angel said unto them, ‘Fear not!'” This is one of my favorite quotes from the Bible. Especially good for this year, these times. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Flower balls at Longwood

A trip down memory lane, to the other side of the year, the other side of the country…these huge flower balls are marvels of fantasy as well as engineering and horticulture.

Fir trees and huckleberry bushes

The view from our campsite in Scenic Beach State Park, WA last week.

Many, many tall Douglas fir trees with huckleberry bushes underneath (sadly all done)

Scenic Seabeck WA

On the way to Scenic Beach State Park Campground, this view near Seabeck was pretty scenic indeed. See the tiny boats in the distance?

Water, mountains, sky, with miniscule boats in the distance.

Crescent moon

We were so lucky to be able to stay at a cabin in Freeland, WA on Whidbey Island with an incredible view. The weather has been unbeatable, so warm and clear.

Succulents at Longwood

A few years ago I was lucky enough to tour the incredible Longwood Gardens outside of Philadelphia. My goodness, just stellar. Here is a shot of some succulent plants.

Succulents indoors at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. Aren’t those blue ones wild?

Forest scene at Big Creek, WA

This campground photo from several years ago I offer as a way to remember what the woods feels like. Not this year for us, but maybe next year.

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?

Cabin porch

We spent a few days in this little cabin in the Olympic National Forest. It was built in 1907, and it just so happens we met the granddaughter of the man who built it, a Mr. Finch. In any case, a rainy day on a porch like this is just heaven. Note the yoga mat.
