Walking in a Winter Wonderland

The day after Thanksgiving we went for a drive to Federation Forest and found the evergreens dusted with snow. It was an unexpected but pleasant surprise. It was also a surprise to find the gate to the park locked. But no matter; we left… Continue Reading “Walking in a Winter Wonderland”

Dream House at Tiffany Park

There once was a forest in Tiffany Park.  The trees were worn and tangled yet full of life; native plants and mosses provided splashes of color. Deer and raccoon, owls and woodpeckers, all called it home. Dogs and their walkers visited daily and there… Continue Reading “Dream House at Tiffany Park”

A Walk in the Woods at Shadow Lake Preserve

The Work Continues

This morning I woke up to the usual noises of destruction (I mean construction) behind my house in what was once called the Tiffany Park Woods and went to take a look. This is what I saw. Which is all fine and good but… Continue Reading “The Work Continues”

A Visit to Bellevue Botanical Garden

One sunny day earlier this summer my husband had to be in Bellevue so I hitched a ride and had him drop me off at the Bellevue Botanical Garden.  He was longer than we thought he would be, so I got to enjoy a… Continue Reading “A Visit to Bellevue Botanical Garden”

The Gone Tiffany Park Woods

I must say that was fast. Not only have the trees and shrubs come down in what was formerly known as the Tiffany Park Woods, but the area has been pulverized into submission (and yes, dirt) with not a single green thing left, except for… Continue Reading “The Gone Tiffany Park Woods”
