The Promised Snow Has Finally Arrived

It started with a fury overnight – tiny flakes of ice blown sideways. It’s falling still – larger and softer – more gently but determined – blanketing everything in white. The hummingbirds waited patiently while I brought them fresh nectar; I’d forgotten to bring… Continue Reading “The Promised Snow Has Finally Arrived”

Blue Skies and Eagles before the Snow

Snow is in the forecast – promises promises. It only arrives when it’s unexpected. When I worked downtown this was always the case.

A Riot of Color in Orange and Green

After two months of being closed, I was thrilled when Gene Coulon Memorial Park opened last week, allowing us to resume our walks on the shores of Lake Washington.  Always popular but not overcrowded, it’s a perfect place to walk anytime of year, with… Continue Reading “Back for a Walk at Coulon Park”

Life During a Pandemic – A River Walk and Facetime with Mom

Yesterday we walked along the Cedar River Trail. There were a handful of others with the same idea and we all kept our distance, even the ducks. The willow trees were beautiful and weeping once more The cherry trees (or plum – I can’t… Continue Reading “Life During a Pandemic – A River Walk and Facetime with Mom”

Rainbow Cheer

Rain, rain, rain all week long but today I caught a little sunbreak and saw the hint of a rainbow over Lake Washington. I managed a short walk at Coulon Park while the rainbow played hide and seek with the clouds and sunshine until… Continue Reading “Rainbow Cheer”
