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 &…

Super Moon 2018

The first day of 2018 brought us a Super Moon, when the moon is full and also closest to the earth.  I couldn’t resist standing outside in the cold last night trying to capture its beauty.  Here are some of those attempts. You never…

A Northwest Winter Sunset

I caught the sun setting on what has been a very long winter in the Pacific Northwest. Eagerly awaiting spring to come. ~ Susanne

Gray skies and post vacation doldrums..

Is it the jet lag, time change or bad weather?  Usually I’m ready for home after vacation, this time not so much.  I had gotten used to slow mornings, lazy days, and beach walks.  Sunshine, palm trees, and playing in ocean waves. Good bye Maui and welcome back to…

More than half way there

After a rendezvous with winter earlier this week (was it really only six days ago?) the rain quickly followed and washed the snow away leaving only heavy clouds by yesterday. Today the sun emerged victorious giving us a foretaste of spring.  Still cold but perfect for walking so we headed to Gene Coulon Park…
