Watch face jewelry

I grew up around a lot of old watches, so I was entranced to see this jewelry in Island Books in Mercer Island, WA. The sign of the maker is underneath the bracelets. Snap one up before they are gone!

Tractor in foggy field

Going to Auburn, WA the other day, saw this bucolic farm scene of a man riding his red tractor as the mist collected, and his dog keeping him company.

Lenticular cloud at Mt. Rainier

Driving to Auburn, WA to cut a live Christmas tree, the Mountain (what locals call Mt. Rainier) was out, decorated by some pretty wonderful cloud forms.

Swirly lenticular cloud near the peak of Mt. Rainier means rain is on the way

Pink dogwood tree

Back to the archives, from April. My birthday, in fact. I love the big pink dogwood tree in my backyard, next to the magnolia tree not quite blooming yet.

Pink dogwood blooms in April in Seattle. Rain is coming!
