Perspective – Under a Western Red Cedar

After bemoaning our lack of summer in the Pacific Northwest, a day showed up to prove me wrong. Cool yes, but fresh and bright with sunshine, the only clouds in the sky showcasing the brilliant blue behind. To enjoy the day we went to… Continue Reading “Perspective – Under a Western Red Cedar”

Rain Barrels, Fins, and a Swallowtail at Seattle’s Magnuson Park

In my last post I told you about the rain barrels in our backyard. To get the second one we went to Sand Point, an old naval base on the shores of Lake Washington, now mostly owned and used by the City of Seattle. … Continue Reading “Rain Barrels, Fins, and a Swallowtail at Seattle’s Magnuson Park”
