a mental health break: wd’s backyard birds & bugs slideshow
mr. wd and i grew all the flowers, cannabis, and veggie flowers. given that butterflies and bees have been so scarce over the past few years, i try especially hard to get photos of those glorious and helpful critters. you’ll notice that i’m blown away by the reproductive parts of flowers, including the wee flowers within flowers within flowers…in some varieties.
we live in southwest colorado between mesa verde national park and the la plata mountains (‘the shining mountains’ to the ute tribes) and given that ordinarily our gardening season is about 90 days, we have to start the annuals in the greenhouse…and hope like hell they mature. the cannabis we put in walls-of-water until we reckon the last frost is over.
anyhoo, if you click this link, it’ll take you to my ‘flowers’ album on flickr.
in the white space in the right-hand corner below the blue ‘sign up’ box is a rectangular screen icon with an arrow in it. if you hover your cursor over it, it says ‘toggle slideshow’, and it begins. when you want to end it, click ‘escape’.
please feel free to download any of the photos for your personal use. i’m pretty sure that you have to ‘escape’ and download any from the crazy quilt of them (2 pages); there’s a white outline of an arrow with a line under it that signifies ‘download’. the tall narrow ones are for half-fold cards. iirc, you can choose the size and resolution you’d like as well.
hope you like ’em.
