Smiling dog

At last year’s Alki Art Fair there was a very happy dog at the water’s edge.

Sequim Lavender Festival

As you might know, I am a jewelry crafter and have been having a good time in various craft fairs for a few years now. I usually make glass tile jewelry from the pages of my book, “Flowers of Volunteer Park Conservatory,” (see the Jewelry and Shows tabs at the top) but for the Sequim (WA) Lavender Festival I’ve made some special pieces. If you are in the area, please do come see me in Booth 135. Here’s a photo I took out there last year.

Seattle skyline

Here’s a shot of Seattle approaching from the south, showing progress on the new tunnel construction. I think the yellow cylinders are where the tunnel boring started, moving north. At one time not so very long ago, the Smith Tower on the far right, the pointy one, was the tallest building in Seattle!

Fireboat

While on a cruise ship going to Bermuda, leaving the New York City harbor (see Lady Liberty post below), there was a fireboat looking scenic.

Lavender garden

In front of my house I have some roses, and now there are lavender plants as well. A good contrast, I think.

Tropicana rose

This year the Tropicana rose and other roses in my front yard are much happier than last year. I’ve been using Dr. Earth fertilizer and it seems to make a huge difference. NOTE: I might be in error on the name. I think this is Fragrant Cloud. Tropicana has more pink and yellow.
