Stan & Joyce Orchard
Trying to figure it out since 1975.

For the first time in many years, Pacific Science Center is closed during the week. Every Monday-Tuesday through spring with the exception of holidays and school break periods. The ducks and other critters are wondering what’s going on.
A golden tint to the Emerald City this morning.
Never tire of watching the cycle each year. Fuzzy when they first appear, velvet in summer, sharp and menacing come fall, ragged and spent when they drop in late winter/early spring, hopefully landing somewhere we can find them.
When she wore that sweater I was putty in her hands. Actually, it didn’t matter what she wore.
At least three or four in there. When I first found them they all would have fit in my hand. A week later they’re outgrowing their little home and moving out.
Some of Hobart’s newest residents stopped by for a visit this evening along with some friends sporting their new antlers.
The view out our kitchen window is pretty dull and laid back this morning. Yawn!
Never heard of these before a trip to Flower World late this winter. Amazed they’re blooming and have the great gardenia fragrance. Not real strong, but still.
I’ve been saying this since the early 90s and it seems as valid today as then: this is the Golden Age for communicators. Anyone who can speak, write, and/or do anything with images. This new report on the state of podcasting seems to support my assertion.
Not crazy about all the recent sequels, remakes, etc. But this one…? Maybe. #timetravel
Here we are in a sweltering mid-May and our grandson and I have next season’s firewood in and ready to burn. After the February we endured, not sure why this feel so good.
We’ve almost forgotten the miserable month of February. I thought for sure we’d lost this lupine to all the snow and ice. But in some new soil and pot and she looks pretty good.
We’ve been eating spinach from our little garden for a few weeks now, but this morning we picked our first radishes. Such a simple thing, yet awesome at the same time. #gardening
Moon + Saturn – Saturn is in conjunction with the moon right now, though you can’t see it in this photo. That’s Jupiter off to the west trying to steal the show.
Our little green friend has returned for another gardening season of fun and froggery on our deck.
Life is good. Sometimes. For a moment.
All you had to do is look toward me. Hate it when models won’t take direction.
Spring is really here now. These beauties are blooming on our road. About 100 feet away are a few piles of snow. Let the sun shine.
Got to hear him take his final bow live from Tokyo in a rare early morning game. As the sun was setting on his career, the moon was setting over the arches. Yes, tears were shed.
Can’t believe this gorgeous creature still tolerates me. We hiked a mile along the Cedar River at Renton this morning. Loving this weather.
