Giving Credit Where Credit Is Due


Being a wordy former history teacher,  I’m very conscious in my blogging of not becoming too verbose. That’s where Mrs. T. (the former English teacher) comes in.  Barb not only edits for me when I  demonstrate my grammar ineptitude but also provides the pictures that beautifully define what I'm trying to say.  The out of focus photos are usually mine….

Very rare white ladyslippers
Butterfly Weed


Prairie Clover
Yellow Ladyslipper
Thanks Barb.....

  6. I agree, you are a great team. I love the butterfly bush. I have tried to get them to grow here. They seem to prefer ditches.

  8. Fun fine, the very rare white ladyslipper. :-)
    We found a pink ladyslipper hiking in the Porcupine Mtns. last spring.

  9. How lucky for the both of you!
    Great shots!
    BTW, I had tanagers here and didn't even notice! Kept wondering what that pale yellowish bird was that I saw all the time. Then a neighbor's kid mentioned my cardinal had black wings! Well, I have so many cardinals I had not noticed the male tanager! duh!

  10. I love photos of flowers, and Mrs T certainly captured a variety of blooms I rarely see. And, of course, you are fortunate to have your own editor.

    I, too, am a former English teacher. But I think the last quarter century of my working days were writing for a marine science research agency and a marine science research institution.

    It encouraged verbosity, and obviously I have not won that battle.

  14. So now the truth comes out...this is a joint blog. Mrs T supplies excellent photos. I'm not sure that blogs have to e written in precise English.

  15. Lovely photos. Thankfully, my husband never gets involved in my blogging posts. I don't take criticism well. Besides, that's my job. I edit his writing. I do need an editor though. Perhaps, Mrs. T. would help me.

    Wonderful photos. I'm impressed by the quality. Also, it is nice to remember the names of the beautiful wildflowers that are becoming so rare around here.

  16. What a great team you make! LOVE all the flowers---I don't think I have ever seen ladyslippers in person before. They are lovely.

  17. So---you, a history teacher, is married to an English teacher. How neat is that. George was a Math teacher and I was a Music teacher. ...Works for us too!!!

    Love both of your photos. I've never seen a WHITE ladyslipper before. NEAT!!!

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  25. I'd noticed in reading the Canadian Trip stories that you write very economically, so on my account you're succeeding!
