All Ablaze at Seattle Japanese Garden

I can’t remember the last time I visited Seattle Japanese Garden at the Arboretum – maybe never?   But what better time than during the annual Maple Festival when the Garden is ablaze with color. ~ Susanne

Annual Coulon Color

I couldn’t resist dropping by Gene Coulon Park today to see the trees transformed into their fall glory. It never gets old. ~ Susanne

Walking into Fall at Coulon Park

September has been slow to relinquish summer and that’s fine with me.  I’m enjoying the lingering sun and slow transformation of the leaves even as the days grow shorter. A slow walk into Fall at Coulon Park. ~ Susanne

After Yellowstone and a Trip Downtown

Back from vacation for a week now and I’m still trying to get into the groove.  It’s a slow go.  I’m plowing through pictures I took in that most beautiful National Park and enjoying them too but honestly, what shall I do with all…

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

Reflections on Fall

It starts with September my favorite month. I close my eyes and see the school, as sturdy as the last century. It’s 4th grade again and Miss Warner is young.  Her face and hair and dress all a golden tan; her hair short and…

Fall Walk around Green Lake

I was raised in West Seattle and rarely ventured into other parts of the City, save for the occasional trip downtown or jaunt to the Zoo.  And so I’d never been to Green Lake until we moved to the north end rather unexpectedly (at…

Rainy Day Cats

It’s a typical fall day in the Pacific Northwest, with gray skies, steady rain and two cats unable to decide whether to be in or out. Benji strikes a handsome pose through the screened picture window, apparently waiting patiently. Tiger has chosen a different…

After the Storm

We heard the wind howling in the night but woke to overcast skies and promising sunbreaks.  We thought we could beat the storm’s next wave and so headed out to Coulon Park for a morning walk.  We found everything windswept, clean and fresh, and…

A Walk on the Cedar River Trail

What a difference a day makes!  This morning brought brief snow flurries to the region (the earliest I can remember) but yesterday was mild with only light rain. I’m happy we took our walk on the Cedar River Trail yesterday. The Trail follows the…

Road Trip to Leavenworth

A couple of sunny fall days in the forecast so we packed our bags for an overnight trip to Leavenworth.  I had to remove the stowaway who was hoping to tag along.  (Sorry Benji, you wouldn’t like the car ride.) The sun was shining…

Nolte State Park in Color

There’s never a bad time to visit Nolte State Park.  We’ve made the drive south many times to get away from the city, breathe in fresh air and walk the trail through the forest around lovely Deep Lake. We were there in January when the…
