Cloudy with a Chance of Rain

The smoky skies made for some interesting sunrises, sunsets, and moonrises too. But after a long, dry, summer in the Pacific Northwest, it’s good to be back to normal: Cloudy with a chance of rain. Remind me in November. – Susanne

On Morning’s Orange Sun

The Pacific Northwest is once again under the filmy haze of smoke from Canadian wildfires resulting in unhealthy air. In the meantime we are awakened by a mysterious and brilliant orange sun. Can’t wait for the rainy fall season to begin. ~ Susanne

Tree Art and Sunset at Seward Park

We took a walk last night at Seward Park through woods of Douglas-Fir, lit up by Maple. Near the lakeshore this golden Madrona was beautiful alone, shortly before sunset over the lake. ~ Susanne

A Summer Walk in the Park

There’s nothing like summer in the Pacific Northwest and what better way to enjoy it than with a walk at Coulon Park on the shores of Lake Washington? Where sky and lake meet in perfect shades of blue and sailboats await the call. Where…

Washington My Home

My ‘place in the world’ undoubtedly starts with Seattle where I was born and raised when it was just a sleepy Boeing town. Now exploding with technology and traffic, it’s increasingly crowded and expensive to live in. No matter. What I like the most…

A Drive to Washington Park Arboretum

Sometimes there’s a drive and sometimes there’s a destination and sometimes you’re lucky to enjoy both as I did yesterday.  My destination was the Washington Park Arboretum and  I took the scenic route to get there,  Lake Washington Boulevard. Lake Washington Boulevard Lake Washington…

Springtime in Seattle

Springtime at Seward Park

Since rediscovering Seattle’s Seward Park last year, it has become one of our favorite places to walk.  Less than 30 minutes from our house, this beautiful park on Lake Washington has beaches, old growth forest, hiking trails, picnic areas, and scenic views of Seattle….

Gray and Red in Seattle

I always thought Petula Clark had it right, “when you’re alone and life is making you lonely you can always go.. downtown!” I liked the song back in the sixties and even then as a kid I’d hop on a bus downtown for 20…

Sunny and Blue at Seward Park

After a snowy weekend we enjoyed the crisp and cold but sunny weather yesterday;  a perfect time to bundle up and walk through Seattle’s Seward Park on Lake Washington.   We started out under brilliant blue skies, with this view of Mt. Rainier partially…

Spring Comes Early to the NW Flower and Garden Show

We interrupt this winter to bring you the Northwest Flower and Garden Show!  Yes, it’s February – time again to head to the Convention Center where spring is alive and its fragrance fills the air!  I did that yesterday and filled my senses with…
