I owe one week’s pictures for my photo of the week 2012 project…
It’s not too often that our back yard calls me out to take a picture or two, but this afternoon the sun was casting some really nice cool light on the yard and on all of last week’s snow on the ground. And the sky was blue, finally!
I was surprised at how the pictures came right out of the camera with such a deep blue sky. I touched them up on the computer just a bit, but didn’t even saturate or darken the sky. I loved the blue with the browns and reds in our maple tree.

We spent a day in Glacier last weekend, just going for a drive with the dog and the camera. This national park is beautiful, and pretty much in our backyard so we go hiking and camping every summer in different … Continue reading
Last weekend we made a three day trip over to Idaho and Washington to visit all the family. I will hopefully post a few pics of the weekend, but for now, just some summer goodness.
It was a good time, and we made a (very necessary) stop at the orchards at Green Bluff, outside of Spokane. I really love this area, and would love to go there at least a few times every summer. So fun to do the u-pick berries, peaches, and get your hands on all the fresh summer produce. This time we didn’t have time to pick berries, it was very hectic (but fun) with visiting family, and having a 8 week old puppy with us on a roadtrip. So we got a box of berries and a box of peaches.
Just freezing all of it, for wintertime baking, smoothies, and milkshakes. It’s great to fill up the freezer with all the sweet, juicy, delicious summer fruit and be able to use it all year. My next stops, sometime this weekend, are the cherry orchards alongside Flathead Lake! 🙂
And a 20 lb box of peaches…
I am enjoying a bowl of peaches with half and half and a pinch of turbinado sugar as we speak, a perfect midnight snack. =)

Last night we had an evening of the most gorgeous rainbows I’ve ever seen! Actually saw two different ones, one on my drive home and another later at home… And they were each full size, and double 🙂
Someday soon I’m going to actually have a *good* camera, and get some real photos! I was wishing I had a better camera last night.
Anyway, it was a beautiful view from our back patio.
