As Spring Rolls Into Summer

Happy Solstice and welcome to summer. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we’re getting quite a mix of rainy days and sun. And all the plants absolutely love it! While my Kundalini journey goes on and life is still a bit challenging on a daily basis, the entire process is evolving. Having enough energy and focus to be able to get out and snap some photos is just what I’ve needed lately.

With what feels like the world on fire, to bring me back to myself I take photos. It’s one thing I can control and feel good about. So enjoy these random pictures from my yard and places around the area.

With safety measures in place because of COVID 19, instead of waiting in waiting rooms, I waited for an appointment outside enjoying this beautiful lavender and sage.

Our yard is well populated with a variety of wildlife. Here are just a few!

We’re a little over a half hour from the ocean, and last week I spent some time visiting two local parks, sitting by the sea for a while, between running errands. Smelling the salt air is just the ticket at times.

One of the things I love about this time of year are the wildflowers growing by the road. Daisies and fireweed are just blooming, and so are foxgloves.

We’re in that in between time when our rhododendron and lilac blooms have passed, and most of my other flowering plants are still in various forms of bud. The one plant that’s blooming like crazy is my rose. It’s a pretty little pink, amazingly fragrant rose. And it’s a favorite. Enjoy!
