Rain – it makes one catch up on all the “inside” jobs.  As you’ll see, it’s been a week of rain here.

Thimbleberry In the Rain

Thimbleberries are in bloom right now.  Sometimes the bees work them, but not in the rain.  They produce a wonderfully tart berry, but you have to eat them when you pick them because they are too soft and too good to carry around.

That’s this week’s “photo of water a day” from photographer Karen E. Bean, of Maple Falls, WA (that would be me).  I’m glad to be back on a weekly posting schedule.

My June vow is to not keep putting off putting these on line.  It should be calmer at the apiary.  Of course that’s when everything goes haywire, eh?

I decided to post going backwards in time: May 31 to May 1.  That seems to be the age in which we live.

At The Northfork (Beer Shrine, not River)

A family celebration, and the best place to do that is at the Northfork Beer Shrine (and wedding chapel – no joke, the owner can officiate at your wedding).  This is the best microbrewery I’ve ever found, the food is great, and all the folks are wonderful.  If you’re in the Mt. Baker area, it’s worth a visit.

Another Rainy Day

I look back on these and think, but it is a bit sunnier than that here.  It’s just that when it’s sunny, I’m out in the bee yards and only get to walk when it’s getting dark (or shoot in the cabin after dark).  With the coming of summer – oh please, soon I hope – there will be more sunny shots.  Of course I’m writing this in the library on a rainy day….

Those are the photos for May from me, photographer Karen E. Bean, of Brookfield Farm in Maple Falls, Washington (Walking-Wild.com).  I truly hope I can now go back to posting once a week – bees and weather willing.

Delay, delays, so this and the next is a bit of catching up.  I’ll work from most recent to earlier in the year.

Seattle Washington: Fremont Ship Canal from Water Images 52 Weeks : photographer Karen E. Bean

Ship Canal At Dawn: Seattle, Washington

We work the Seattle’s Fremont Market every Sunday.  Ian goes every week, I go on the first Sunday of the week (it’s a 2 1/2 hour drive, but it’s our best market).  It works – Ian hates doing internet work, I hate rising at 3am… To each their skills at our farm.

It's A Rush

 

It is indeed a rush to get caught up on the postings.

Taking the images is fun, if challenging on some days.
Working with the images is fun.

Posting the images — now that is a bit of a pain – perhaps if I didn’t get so behind it would be fine.

Weekly, yes, weekly (I hope)

Now it’s off to prepare to split some hives and walk the pack goats …

I got a little delayed, thus 2 weeks of images posted on one day.  Hopefully, I’ll soon get back to a posting each week.

A Dark And Stormy Day

Oh, when will it stop raining????  I walk my pack goats, and pet goats, every day, as long as it’s not pouring.  Lately, it’s been down the road and around, because it’s a drag walking though the forest when it’s really really wet (the goats make this clear to me).

February 22

I like this, but I have to admit I had some help.  I was perched on top of our 15 foot tall culvert, shooting down into the creek when Mojo decided that what was really needed was a bit of camera shake.  He was right, but being nudged by Mojo on a wet surface above a steep fall was still a bit shaking – for me and the camera:

Not part of project but this is Mojo with a can he dug up from the clear-cuts that surround us:

This is how I often see my library, which is the closest WiFi to my farm.  It’s only open a few days a week, and never for more than a few hours: rural Washington.  But the WiFi often works from the front of the truck…Thus I often post from the front seat of my pick up on rainy days (oh when will the rains end? )

Break Through

I do try to keep Sal from jumping in frozen ponds, or walking on them.  Ruins the shot, and I don’t want to pull her out.

That’s it for my Water Images 2012 Project this week.  We went from rain to beautiful sun, and back to rain.  Never a dull moment weather-wise in Maple Falls, Washington –

Sallie (van guard dog) and Mojo (livestock guard dog) wondered why neither I nor the goats (behind me once again. I must speak with their agent) are willing to cross one of the two creeks on our farm (Brookfield Farm in Maple Falls, Washington).  It’s not art : it’s family, which is an art in itself.

Why all the close-ups?  It has been either totally overcast or pouring rain since the beginning of the year

The WiFi in the area went down.  Then the snows closed the libraries (the only WiFi location in this land of “dial-up”).  Thus the “2nd week” has become the 2nd and 3rd week.
