Happy Spring!

Happy spring everyone! 

How are you my friends? 

Don't you just love seeing flowers appear and have you noticed how

pretty and happy the birds sound now? 




This month has been very, very rainy and I have enjoyed every minute of it! 

I've been doing lots of crocheting, reading and drinking tea on the rainy days. 




I know lots of people hate the rain, but it's why things are so green here! 








I love to walk in the garden just after the rain.

(or sometimes even "in" the rain) 

The bottles I have out there now are so colorful.

This year I'm working on putting together a bottle tree for our 

garden, have you seen them before? 



So many daffodils popping up and next 

will be the tulips.  Can you see them below the daffodils starting to 

come up? 









I know now that moss is really not a good thing to have, but I do so love how 

it looks on the decorative rocks.  So green! 






The Japanese Maple is starting to come back. 




Can you tell that even my frog, is happier here on the 

green moss than he was on the rocks in the desert? 







So tomorrow, I'm celebrating the first day of Spring with my friend, Judi. 

We're going to do a little shopping at our favorite nursery and 

maybe even enjoy lunch outdoors! 




Wishing you a beautiful spring day!

One Rainy Day in Seattle...

Hi Friends, 

If you've ever visited our "Rain City" before, then I know you'll be 

familiar with some of the photos I took. 

If not, then I hope you'll enjoy the journey 

through my post here today. 




 This is the famous Pikes Market Place.





Summer is the busy time here, but I love to visit this place even on a rainy, chilly day.





During one of my visits here, I ran into this man,  and I was pleasantly surprised 

to find him painting!  

I'm not experienced with "street photography."   

I'm always worried that I might get caught. 

In fact, in this case, and to make a long story short, I DID get caught. Lol




Since I was already having lunch here, I brought him a sandwich and chatted with 

him a bit, explaining my curiosity. 

He was happy to show me some of his paintings which included one 

of the ferry you see crossing here.




I remember thinking to myself...


How beautiful it is, that this man no matter his background, or abilities as an artist,  

comes out here alone,  inspired by the 

beauty of Puget Sound and paints! 






It was a beautiful memory of Seattle for me, and at the end of this day, 

the sun came out. :-) 




Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend, and remember…

spring is just around the corner!
