Rufous Hummingbird


Having Rufous hummingbirds buzz past your head is a sure sign of spring around here. They are so much fun to watch, chasing bumble bees away from their favourite flowers, and taking tree top joy rides (racing straight up into the air at the edge of the forest, stopping 15-20 feet above the tree tops, and then zooming back down as fast as they can, "laughing" all the way). I saw this male do it 5 or 6 times in a row before stopping to rest in a nearby tree.

8/52 - Leading Lines

7/52 - Love

Being a food nut, one of my favourite ways to show my love is through cooking (and no, the food's not always heart shaped). If I love you, you'll never go hungry.

Trying to decide which of my hobbies to represent was hard. Cooking? Baking? Gardening? Beekeeping? Raising chickens? Preserving? Brewing?  Reading cookbooks? Eating? Then, it dawned on me that these things share a common thread - food. I spend my days consumed by it, and consuming it. It's my passion, my work, and my pleasure.

Skeletonized Tomatillo Husk


I love finding these in my winter garden, rolling where the wind takes them, scattering the seeds for next year's crop.

Blue Week


This handsome fella is Blue, our Blue Orpington rooster. I'm public enemy number one at the moment as far as he's concerned, so it was quite a challenge to get a photo where he wasn't chasing me or trying to gouge my eyes out.

52 Week Challenge

I've started a new photography challenge with some friends and family. This one only involves weekly photos, thankfully, each one based on a theme. Here are the two I've done so far.

1/52 - Show Off Your City
