To all Mother’spurple.flower.16.mothersday.,,,

I spotted these lovely purple crocuses at the waterfront last week…same day I photographed the ice moving.



I think…if this is not a Hibiscus please let me know?   A knowledgeable fellow explained this is a specie of Bauhinia, common called an “orchid tree.”  Thank you Russel at





more berries…


I’ve been around…

I’ve been taking photos since the spring, but they have been different than what I usually take…for the most part the photos have been of veggies, fruit, artisan items and people.   I’m still not happy with my photos of people, but will persevere.

I’ve not posted nor visited much as time was limited for me.   That is coming to an end this week as the North Bay Farmers’ Market last day is this Saturday.   I intend to be around more at least I hope so!  It will be nice to take photos of landscapes, the lake, trees, etc., again.





the growing season in my area is behind due to cold wet weather…but the produce is finally beginning to arrive at the North Bay Farmers’ Market.  These shots are from both the Saturday and Wednesday Markets last week.  Raspberries, snow peas, peppers,  cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and red and blue potatoes.

So happy to see the raspberries, they are my favorite…


don’t these look delicious…


here are the blue and red potatoes one of our vendor grows, apparently they are high in anti oxidants…and delicious in a potato salad!

last but not least, plump red cherry tomatoes…
