Wild Onions & my little Bumblebee

Hanging out in the front yard just to observe


is the only term that pays justice in regard to the longevity of these tasty and very healthy wild onions. The plant to the left has been in existence for more than 12 years in my front yard.
Surviving harsh winters with up to 20 below zero without any problems makes this plant as tough as they come.
I cut the green and use it for salads and sandwiches. What we can’t eat right away goes in the freezer for winter meals.

Teaming up to survive

Survival means everything in nature. Not just for these beautiful looking vegetables that become a part of tasty cuisine, but for the insects that need them to feed off.

Bees and bumblebees are regular visitors to my wild little front yard sitting area where I specifically plant annuals and perennials that attract that attract bees, bumblebees, humming birds and moths.

There is nothing more therapeutic that to sit, watch, and listen to the miracle of life on Planet Earth.

After the station was sold, she created Wallowa Valley Online, an independent online news magazine publishing and writing news and engaging in photojournalism. After ten years of Wallowa Valley Online, Angelika decided to concentrate on her professional photography, write more human interest stories, and volunteer at the Nez Perce Wallowa Homeland.

Regarding my writing: "As a grandchild of post-war Europe (ethnic ancestry Bohemian/Austrian/German) and former Army spouse, I have lived and visited many places across the globe. Wallowa County, Oregon, has been my home since 2002. I am the daughter of a mom whose country violently vanished post-WWII. Her family was forcefully removed from Bohemia in 1946 when she was only six years young and sent to West Germany in cattle wagons. Her life story has tremendously impacted my own and formed my views on humanity and, at times, the lack thereof.
My formal college education is in the nursing field and psychology, which finds itself in my work as a writer and photographer. I am a humanitarian by heart and soul." ~Angelika Ursula Dietrich
