I’m Singing and Hiking in the Rain!

After 51 days straight without any measurable precipitation we finally had rain in Seattle, and I said bring it on! To celebrate this first rainy day of summer we went for a hike in the woods at Kanaskat-Palmer State Park, with a smile on… Continue Reading “I’m Singing and Hiking in the Rain!”

Where’s the Mountain? Behind Seattle’s Gray

The bluest skies you’ve ever seen are in Seattle, sang Perry Como. Perhaps they are – just not often enough! 😉 It turns out that Seattle is one of the cloudiest cities in the country, with over 300 cloudy days a year on average.… Continue Reading “Where’s the Mountain? Behind Seattle’s Gray”

I woke this morning to a caucus of crows and heavy footsteps on the roof.  Were they protesting the presence of a raccoon?  I got up to look while the clamoring continued as did the low rumblings.  Too heavy for a raccoon, maybe the… Continue Reading “Strange and Soothing Seasons”

Ambling in the Rainy Day Garden

After being missing in action for most of April, the rain returned to the Pacific Northwest and was welcomed by all. I took a walk in the garden admiring the raindrops on the Lady’s Mantle the Chives and the budding Clematis. It won’t be… Continue Reading “Ambling in the Rainy Day Garden”
