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….Mrs. T. photographing Mr. Science (Gary) at work out on the prairie –
Nice! I especially love the white ladyslippers. And that last picture, too. :-)ReplyDelete
Beautiful photography. You make a good team.ReplyDelete
Well - together it sounds like you make the perfect team! :) As happens in a good marriage.ReplyDelete
Beautiful shoots, I really like the smoke.ReplyDelete
Mrs. T really has some great shots here!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
these are beautiful! especially that last one!!ReplyDelete
Fun fine, the very rare white ladyslipper. :-)ReplyDelete
We found a pink ladyslipper hiking in the Porcupine Mtns. last spring.
How lucky for the both of you!ReplyDelete
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!
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.ReplyDelete
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.
A team effort----I love that about you two. And you appreciate her efforts and I'm sure that benefits both of you as well. To many more years of needing each other!!ReplyDelete
Thanks indeed. Lovely photographs.ReplyDelete
Those white Ladyslippers are beautiful!! Thanks Mrs T:)ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
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.
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.ReplyDelete
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!!!ReplyDelete
Love both of your photos. I've never seen a WHITE ladyslipper before. NEAT!!!
You certainly complement each other. That's nice. I like the way Mrs T 'gets down to it' when taking photos.ReplyDelete
You two make a great team!ReplyDelete
Beautiful images! Thanks for stopping by my place. :)ReplyDelete
Ah, the real woman behind the man! Love these pictures.ReplyDelete
Kudos to you both! To your Mrs. T for the credit she deserves, and to you for giving it. :)ReplyDelete
We wives like to be acknowledged for our efforts now & then.
how wonderful to have a photographer like Mrs T! I do love the prairie smoke, such an interesting texture!ReplyDelete
Nice work Mrs T. You two make a lovely team ...so glad you share with us.ReplyDelete
Both you and the Mrs did fine.ReplyDelete
I'd noticed in reading the Canadian Trip stories that you write very economically, so on my account you're succeeding!ReplyDelete
Loved the white ladyslipper, never seen anything but the pink ones!ReplyDelete
So Lily learned big boomers buy her a cuddle! I say nice and so does Stella, who does the same thing.
Thought I had left a comment here! You have visited this site before...it would be one Mr. t would like, I am sure! I need to remind myself next Spring!! Wonderful photos!ReplyDelete
I love the ladyslipper. You and Mrs. T make a good team!ReplyDelete
What lovely flowers you have in your area. I've never seen Lady's Slippers, such an amazing flower. You two make a good blogging team. WendyReplyDelete
