"I started photographing my domestic world and writing not just about what I had made,
but why I made it, examining the thoughts that accompany creativity and the act of making."

Testing iPad Blogging: Seeing Spring

Sunday , in the Gresham , Oregon , area we had thunder-snow! It was a rather raucous herald to the official arrival of Spring the next day!
The days since have been a fairly steady succession of rain or snow until this morning when the sun shone through the cloud curtain.
The way into seasonal change has been frequently decorated by snow showers, gray skies, rain showers, gray skies . . .
As a result, the creek on the front of the property is still running high and filling the front man-made pond.
But sun-starved or not our Camilla bush is bravely blooming!
The daffodils are defiantly facing the snow and rain showers
determined to bloom in their own good time . . .
rain , snow , thunder , or whatever weather may show
even some patches of blue sky
and the forsythia bush has been stalwart too , celebrating spring with branching rays of gold , perhaps daring the sun to do the same and join the fun! <3


  1. You're having fun with that iPad, aren't you? I've been using mine more too. I will be taking it to DC.. now to figure out how to the get photos from the iPhone to the iPad.. hmmm... ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

    1. Yes, I am having fun with the iPad , too! (: I wondered about how to transfer the photos from my iPhone to the iPad, and tried sending them in an email like I do to my laptop, but then I could not figure how to download them into a catagory the blogging app allows. Another cyber mystery! <3

    2. Do you use iCloud? If you do, your photos should be automatically saved to a remote server somewhere and you should be able to access them from either device.

      I am trying to figure out how to manage all of our apple devices on one apple username so that I can still use iCloud and it is driving me crazy.

    3. I have iCloud downloaded on some of my devices, but I have not figured out how to use it yet.Thanks to your suggestion I will explore it further! <3

  2. Beautiful photos. We have been having some lovely warm, sunny spring days here. It did snow here last weekend but we were further south with mum. My daffodils not out properly but lots of other blossom bursting forth so pretty. Our camellia is flowering as well. I definitely want to be in the ipad gang!!! Take care. Anne x

    1. The iPad is an amazing tool! Anne. It would be fun to learn to use it together, if you decide to join the gang. <3

  3. You're a poet, Gracie. The lady Robert Frost. :) I love your ipad blogging! I don't have one, so I've no clue how to use it... lol

    1. Sosae, isn't it strange to enjoy the wonder of communicating with others around the world while still celebrating the simple, ancient joy of spinning and shaping fiber into beautiful and useful fabric? I love visiting with you and left you another note on my postponed post, but Blogger glitched so you may not have received it... sigh... technology... amazing but challenging, huh. <3
