Memories at Snoqualmie Falls

The day before the snow arrived – it seems so long ago – we went to Snoqualmie Falls, one of our favorite local attractions.  The Falls are an easy drive from Seattle and a place to wow your out-of-town guests.  Or to celebrate a…

Snow Day in the Garden

The snow arrived on little cat feet yesterday then mounted a lion-size assault overnight, so we woke to this. Like most Seattleites I was thrilled as it seemed winter had been passing us by. Parents called in, schools were closed and social media lit…

A Few Days in Juneuary

While other parts of the country are being hammered by winter storms, here in the Pacific Northwest we are enjoying a few more days of Juneuary.  While not appreciated when experienced as a cold and rainy June, Juneuary is quite wonderful when it brings…

The Rain, the Park and Other Things

I’m borrowing the title for this post because it fits and if you don’t know it’s a song that’s okay too –  I guess I’m showing my age. It’s been a rainy week in the Great Northwest but what else can you expect in…

From Winter to Spring

Yesterday’s trees looked ragged and black against the cloud filled sky. Today’s sky was bluer and clouds were fewer to let us know spring has arrived. ~  Susanne

March Skies in Color

It’s the last week of winter and the sky put on quite a show for us here in the Pacific Northwest. Earlier this week I caught this sunrise. Last night I enjoyed a different color palette with this sunset. Both were wonderful. ~ Susanne

March comes in on a Whisper

There’s no lion today;  March has come to the Pacific Northwest with barely a whisper and blue skies.  We take advantage of the milder temperatures with a walk on the Cedar River Trail. We see bursts of color in the trees and shrubs… As…

Sunny and Blue at Seward Park

After a snowy weekend we enjoyed the crisp and cold but sunny weather yesterday;  a perfect time to bundle up and walk through Seattle’s Seward Park on Lake Washington.   We started out under brilliant blue skies, with this view of Mt. Rainier partially…

A Week of Winter Gardening

Cold – wind – rain – snow – sunshine –  we saw everything this week.  But when the rain stopped I headed outside to tend to the garden. It’s amazing what you can accomplish in a short amount of time;  time that is therapeutic…

Winter Skies

After a soggy January, the rain finally stopped today and I was happy to go for a walk outside with partially blue skies peeking through the clouds. While it still remained dry, I ventured out again at sunset to see my favorite winter tree….

Is it Spring Yet?

Inquiring minds want to know. No, I tell them. We are only half way through.  Though the baby daffodils seem to think so and shall soon show brilliant yellow blossoms. And the Rhodies think so too and are already displaying their color. No.  I…

The Skagit

We went to the Skagit to see the eagles. But found the real attraction was the landscape. And the sunset over the river. ~ Susanne P.S.  The Skagit River lies a couple of hours north of Seattle and is part of the Wild &…
