And, well, quite a while back, all the pretty pink petals of the Cherry Blossom tree blew away . All that is left is the injured trunk of the tree and all the barren branches. But still, the memory stays with me, that beautiful tree .
I took this picture of this beautiful bird back in 2015. He had a broken wing but still he is a most beautiful bird. They rescued this bird and brought him in from the wild and bring him around to educate people about wildlife, and nature. I just love birds… theyContinue reading “This Beautiful Bird..”
My featured photograph is in somewhere upstate NY, on one of my adventures to find a place that I had never been to before. A friend and I took a short adventure (a day adventure) to visit someone for a special project. The day consisted of this and probably more: Took a long, long fun and interestingContinue reading “Getting Lost in Nature”
To me, the most beautiful thing about Cherry Blossom trees are the flower showers, all the pretty pink petals covering the grass and the surrounding area. I wish the blossoms would stay on the trees longer than they do. And then, in the fall, there are all those totally cool Cherry Blossom leaves.
Probably the very first reason is because the workshops and creating wood projects and creating art and doing photography reminds me of my father and the work he used to do. He had about five rooms of ‘workshops’ on the first floor — separate from the three room apartment. And in the rooms of the workshop were tonsContinue reading “why I like creating wood projects and art”

someone name this tree please? Not sure of the kind of tree. All I kno is that the flowers last exactly a couple of days because the breeze blows them away as soon as it comes. Glad I got this photo of it before that happened. This is one of my most favorite trees.Continue reading “Tiny Little Flowers”
Almost ready to fill the basket with pretty plants and flowers ..
So, the garden, that looks as if a truck hit it, should be looking better real soon. Soon the plants are coming back up and soon the Hydrangeas wake up. Some past photographs of flowers and plants in the summer garden.
It’s almost time, right ? Some plant tomatos in May, some in April. But if you have planted them already, they do survive if you keep them indoors. I’ve planted some seeds into small containers, indoors, and I planted them almost a month ago. (Too soon, right? ) . They are still aliveContinue reading “So, is it Tomato Time?”
Outward Bound alumni? Did you take the trip? Did you go into the wilderness? Are you going to take the trip? Leave notes. Everyone wants to hear your story, your true story about your NCOBS wilderness survival experience. Alumni?
Smiles. Yes, it’s art. But here is a longer answer to that huge question. artfromperry After my slideshow here, at the end of this note, I post the link to the person’s journal that asks the question , “is it art”? In answer to your question – Is this art?Continue reading “Is it Art? ….”
So, out of fear, I didn’t arrange for the trip into the forest that last year. You know, I don’t fly, and there lots of other fears, so I never even filled the application out to go to the wilderness school. It as something that I always wanted to do, but I didn’tContinue reading “So,”
Remembering the flowers of summer ….. Most of them are not around yet, some hibernating as bulbs underground, others just hiding as woody plants.. This one flower stays all winter long. And it is still beautiful. All year long this beautiful whitw flower stands tall. I like the light color because it brings a naturalContinue reading “Think Summer!!”
Our schools, centers, community centers are failing in the course of preventing bullies in their spaces. And then they top it all off by not knowing the real way to handle bullying situations.
I’d been there a number of times before but, before this I had never, ever seen turkeys there. For the most part, I took one of my granddaughters on the road trip to distant place to see the wildlife that lived in the area. There ere cardinals, bluejays, woodpeckers ,chickadees, sparrows, squirrels, chipmunks, andContinue reading “Photography Birds”
How did we wind up at the Brandywine Zoo? (NOTE: There is a slide show of some of my nature shots at or near the end of this entry).
Some of the places to camp out in the USA that are safe, and or civilized are the campsites at Hither Hills State Park. You need to reserve at least nine months in advance for these camping spaces. Yes, they are beautiful! You can camp out less than 20 feet from the ocean, and thereContinue reading “Photography Hamptons”
This is last year’s lemon flower. This is the first flower that appeared on our lemon tree plant. And it is beautiful. It grew into a very cool lemon that came up green. Yes, lemons come up green and then later they turn yellow. The green lemon turned yellow and it reached only aboutContinue reading “Photography Baby Lemon Flower”

Beautiful tiny white and purple flowers. A few of the flowers dropped off the plant. A couple of the flowersContinue reading “The Lemon”
Basic, random ideas for camping out . First decide what type of camping experience you want to have. (Ocean, beach camping, wilderness, civilized camping – more amenities, family camping, bike camping, solo camping, or the old “how can you do that” camping in winter). Once you decide that, you’ll know which type of tent andContinue reading “Camping Basics”
Some of our flowers. These recently grew in our garden. Roses, Hydrangeas, Azaleas…and the ukulele, I had to add that here.

I do believe that soon , this year or next year, we might just have a couple of lemonsContinue reading “Photography Lemon Flower”

Different windows, over the years, some reflections, other cloudy windows , some just ordinary windows. Windows really make the difference in a room, in a space. They make the difference between a place being just an ordinary room and a space that becomes extraordinary every day because each day, the view from the window changes,Continue reading “Windows”
For the most part, I’m really into being into ‘today’. But hey, there’s a first time for everything. And today, I’m remembering something that happened yesterday. I was out in the grassy area and by the trees, just looking at the trees. Every once in a while, you would hearContinue reading “Yesterday’s Robins….”
