  Spring 2019

May 2019

One of the things I love about living near Spokane, Washington, is that we have four seasons. Each has its charms, but I appreciate the beauty and wildlife of spring the most. As vegetation greens and flowers start to bloom, the hummingbirds return, tom turkeys strut in our yard, pileated woodpeckers and ruffed grouse can be heard in the woods, and each blade of wild grass seems to sing with new life.

Of all the birds that rejoin us in the spring, my childhood favorite, the goldfinch, is one that still holds a special place in my heart. I hope your spring is bringing you the special joys of the season.

  Winter 2018

Snow at our house
Photo by Linda

As I write this, we are still in the grips of Winter. It was energized by 20 inches of snow over a five-day period, and it has been snowing on and off since. Though there is a lot of shoveling to get to my studio, it is hard to question the beauty of the season. In addition, I’ve seen snowshoe hare tracks, a pileated woodpecker out the kitchen window, and whitetail deer.

Spring is just around the corner, but for now, I will enjoy the snow.
