Summer Wishes

As winter drags on and spring seems out of reach I’m already wishing for summer so I can revel in the garden soak in the sunshine and rest in the shade by the stream. For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, Summer Scenes. ~ Susanne

Tiger by the Fire

It seems that summer packed up and left in a hurry this year, slamming the door on its way out. A couple of weeks ago we had the most dramatic lightshow I’ve never seen in Seattle – heavy rain, thunder, and hundreds of lightning…

The Cool Colors of Summer

According to the calendar it’s still summer in the Great Northwest with fall arriving on the Autumnal Equinox, September 23rd.  Meteorologists opt for September 1st which seems a bit early – I’d say it’s somewhere in between.  Either way, I thought I’d share these…

Sunset at Coulon

We decided to go for a walk at Coulon Park last night just as the sun was beginning to set.   The crowds from Labor Day weekend were mostly gone – the picnickers and swimmers soaking up the last of summer –  leaving the…

A Summer Sunset

Though summer doesn’t arrive till Thursday the weather couldn’t wait and we reached 85 degrees today.  Along with high temperatures expected all week,  the summer solstice will also bring the longest day of the year.  In Seattle that means a whopping 16 hours of…
