Bulbs I planted in December before I went to Alaska. I almost missed their blooms. Weeds are history right after I took photo. PHALL PHOTO 2014

  1. Patti you have a great eye for photos

  2. These are gorgeous, Patti. Mathair and I are huddled around the computer drooling over this scenery. 😉

    • Thank you, ladies! I will do my best to get a bunch up soon, over on my phallphoto blog…That moss had my jaw on the ground. Kevin turned the truck around because whatever I said or did, he knew I wanted to go back and take a photo or 20. Hugs and happy day to you both.

  3. Stunning pictures Patti.
    xxx Huge Hugs xxx

  4. I remember trying to take pictures of my grandson when he was younger – impossible to do without a blur

  5. Beautiful pics,. thanks for sharing. I envy the mushroom farm. I wonder if I could do that here in summer when it is so hot and humid.

    • My daughter made me call her after I ate my first one, to make sure I didn’t poison myself. they are yummy, but hard to get all the dirt out of. I think it rained here the whole time I was gone and the spores must have been in the topsoil that was put there in late autumn.

  6. Lovely photos, Patti. Question: was the handful of hail that Sara picked up thrown your way? 🙂 –Curt
