June Scavenger Hunt



We have all month to  gather photos for this scavenger hunt - the end of the month is near - let's see how far I got.

PURPLE


Foxglove - one of my favorite wildflowers


60


At least 60 Allium in this field

LITTLE


Little Bee in a big flower

EYES


He was watching us for a long time before I discovered him, I was taking photos of other horses in the field and all he time he was standing under a tree watching me.


Flicker eye


Cat eyes - our  neighbor's cat likes to sit in their flower pots.

ANIMAL






ARCHITECTURAL DETAIL



I love windows on old buildings


And newly refurbished buildings


And old sheds

RING



Napkins rings - shall we have fish for dinner?

Flower Pot napkin ring - just the thing for summer luncheon

An altar made by cousins and a friend when we all went camping together in Central Oregon.

LIGHT


Sunlight - on a very foggy day - this is not a B&W photo - it was just very foggy and gray that day.


The tree captured the sun!




Sunset over Bellingham from the top of Alabama Hill



Fairy light in the woods - this is one of my all time favorite photos


Sunlight in the trees at Lake Paden

ROOFTOPS


Rooftops behind a Heron - in the Fairhaven area of Bellingham

ICE CREAM


Ben - eating a big ice cream cone at the fair 


Jahn-Zyel with an ice cream  bar at the fair (these were taken a few years ago - but I couldn't resist showing the two cute boys)


Ice cream cone sign in Birch Bay - and you think you can resist?  Just try.  

TOMBSTONE




I didn't get a picture of a tombstone - but thought I'd show you my pretty pansy painted metal flower pots

ART


Pressing pansies for decoupage - note cards, candles, napkin rings, birdhouses for centerpieces

Hi there. What a wonderful blog you have. Your photos are so interesting and fun. Won't even try to pick a favorite.
I do understand the gray day foggy one living just north of you. Some times it seems to be black and white all day long.

Karen Frost said...

Wow! Love all of these! Cutest little grandsons you have there! And the fairy light in the trees - just awesome! Love your flowerpot napkin rings - and the sea shell ones, too. Great series! xoxo

What a beautiful allium field, I've never seen so many together. I also quite like the fairy ligts on the trees in that wood.
