May Scavenger Hunt

The once a month Scavenger Hunt - lots of fun.


The water in the river was an amazing color

Even through the trees it was aqua


Four bears, sitting at the table - waiting to get into trouble  some lunch

Something Patriotic

I didn't have anything patriotic - so thought you'd love to see another picture of Mt. Baker


The door to my china cabinet is open, so you can see all the pine cone dishes


Anything that sits still for a few moments in Washington, sprouts

Fence posts with grass and a small shrub growing out of the top

A map

A map  I made of Bellingham Bay - top right, and the San Juan Islands - middle.  This is for a quilt about moving to Washington.


Four ducks in a line

Sometimes not a straight line

Sometimes muddled up

Hey you guys - get back in line!!

Ok - that's better


This crow kept coming to the birdbath to wash his food

Or maybe it was too tough and he wanted to dunk

A flag

The teeny tiny Alaska flag flying from the mast of the Alaska State Ferry, leaving Bellingham, WA.  There is also an Alaska flag painted on the funnel - I need to get a better photo of it.  Fireweed and Mullein in the foreground

My grandma used to call Iris, flags, not sure why, but she did.


My clock is broken - I put in new batteries and it still won't keep time.


Key Lime Pie


I was making cranberry/orange scones

The closest I could come to construction

A great collection of photos. That key lime pie looks so good, it's one of my favourite desserts! I love the photo of the mountain too - I also struggled with patriotic.

Gilly Tee said...

The key lime pie looks delicious. Some Irises are called flag Iris, yours are beautiful colours.

Deb said...

Silly ducks.... I love iris our blooms are long gone

Lizzy said...

Those scones look yummy mmmm...... Orange and cranberry. Love all your photos from a very different part of the world to me.

Julie said...

I loved the photos of the river, the four bears and the key lime pie (a very clever interpretation). x

Fiona said...

Your map is clever you are. We both had the same idea for 4!

Julie Fukuda said...

Little Blue Mouse said...

How cute are those teddys?

Fundy Blue said...

Hi Joanne! Great photos! In Nova Scotia we call the wild purple-blue irises blue flag. Very clever to use key limes for keys, and your quilt was awesome!

Paula said...

The photos of the ducks made me smile and I like how you tackled some of the clues, really clever :-)
