Growing Zucchini

One way to live well and be healthy is to grow you own vegetables. Every year I like to grown zucchini. It’s yummy as a bread, baked, fried, bar-b-qED, and more.

This bumble bee wasn’t exactly squaring off with me, but it sure looks like it from this photograph. He was actually buzzing from flower to flower gathering pollen.


2012 Photo Challenge – Ants on Peonies

Instead of one photo today, I thought I would share twelve. They are of Ants on Peonies. I know that I have had ants before in the Photo Challenge, but I couldn’t resist. They are so interesting… from a photographers perspective. Other than that, I really don’t like them!

Photo of the Day – Garden with Lamp Post

Garden with Lamp Post by Corinne Elizabeth Cowherd

Garden with Lamp Post by Corinne Elizabeth Cowherd

One of my favourite book series is the Chronicles of Narnia. One of my favourite scenes in the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe in particular is when Lucy discovers the lamp post in the middle of the woods, and in the dead of Winter. As I was snapping this photograph, I was once again reminded of that scene if it had occurred in the Spring.
