Snow on cedar tree

We have a huge cedar tree in out backyard. Here it is in the heavy, wet snow that fell, before it all started to melt. Bonus image below: our front yard. You can see that there is even snow accumulated on the power lines, but it was already starting to fall off.

Snow briefly covered everything, even the power lines

Snow scene

It hasn’t snowed this year yet, but I thought I’d post this scene of my back yard from a few years back, before a house was built beyond the fence. Scenic to the max!

White rose macro: color and black-and-white

The name of this rose is Honor. The late afternoon light was so beautiful this evening.

And here it is in black and white. I always have such resistance to letting the color go. Which is more thrilling?

Two fruit trees

Both trees are five-grafts; the one on the left is has cherries and on the right, plums. We are looking at my yard towards my neighbors’, behind the fruit trees. Which version do you prefer? Happy Spring!

At an outdoor blues event tonight in Normandy Park WA, the oncoming storm was kind enough to delay a bit for us.

Old siding

I don’t usually post this kind of photo, but I’ll make an exception for this one. In Port Townsend, WA, we stayed at a place that was built in the 1890s. This was the corner of the garage or shed on the property. It just floats my boat.
