Galley Wench Tales

Exploring the world through the people we meet
and the food they eat.

Grass widows growing in the Four Sisters Natural Area of The Dalles. Definitely seeding them this coming winter for next spring in my yard.

Charlotte—thanks for getting me out to the Four Sister Natural Area along with your happy pups, Gracie and Balloo.

Desert Parsley (Lomatium columbianum) budding at The Four Sister Natural Area.

Desert Parsley blooming.

Grayish winter day but starkly beautiful at Four Sisters Natural Area.

Another type of desert parsley.

Deer chillin’ off the trail in the neighborhood. Happy to see them in someone else’s yard where they’re welcome to munch to their heart’s content. Just off the Four Sisters Natural Area.

Snowcapped Washington hills across the Columbia River as seen from our front porch. THis morning, March 4, 2024. Brrr!

My first iris of the season. The johnny-jump-ups behind them had their faces buried in the snow not long ago.
