I was lookin' around the forum, and only saw a thread for introductions. I guess that's a chit chat thread, but since everyone else was/is doing it (making a chit chat thread) in the other "Regional Gardening" forums, I figured I'd fall in line and do the same.

Let's chat, fellow Northwest Gardeners!

Very beautiful and sharply-focused pictures, Julia!

Be working at photography for awhile. If you look at my old images they are not great. My friend Patty who is a fantastic photographer has given me some tips. Some middle years of images on here are with my camera.

One tip I got from Patty is if you're going to post on social media take a square picture. Some times I forget.

I think an I-pad would be hard.

Some of you may already have seen them, but here are a few pictures I took of a baby frog in our grass:

And here are some pictures of oleander (oleander nerium 'Hardy White') at 8:30 p.m. (yes, even though it doesn't look like it by the sky color, they were taken at 8:30 in the night):

The reason why the focus is EXTRA bad, is because there's no sun out, not even on the horizon.

Today, I battled four wasps (lol not really, I just went up to them, clogged up their nest, and booked it Hilarious! ).

We had a spider wasp earlier, but the four wasps were just regular yellow jackets.

I was pretty mad cuz my five-year-old brother got bit and stung from one, once on his finger and then it got stuck in his hair and just started biting and stinging his head.
I took some Lysol and a fly swatter (didn't really use the fly swatter) and SPRAYED the HECK out of their nest.

But that didn't work, so I grabbed a stick, and stuck it all the way up their nest. That's proven effective for now.

I hope they don't come back Blinking
