I have gone back to a trip we took to the San Juan Islands and our stay at Friday Harbor to find some critters! I did take these photos while we were there in July, when it was warm and sunny. The only activity in my yard right now is of the slug variety. It really poured yesterday! I did find this one flower blooming near the back of the yard.
I tried to channel my inner Roda and “Be Still” however the rain started up again and I never did see anything stirring around this pretty bloom. I will try to keep an eye out (in between football games and the rain) to see if a humming bird might buzz by. In the meantime, please enjoy this bee that was hanging out near the lavender which is all over the San Juan Islands!
