Last of the viaduct in Seattle

Just a few weeks ago the last segments of Seattle’s viaduct were still standing. Now they are no more.

Late hydrangeas

When the hydrangeas get a little crepe-y, time to cut and bring them in to dry.

May flowerbed

Even though it’s fall now, May sounds pretty good to me. This is a scene from my May backyard a few years ago.

Dahlias at the Market

Thinking about the flowers at Pike Place Market in Seattle. This was taken on today’s date a few years ago. Enjoy this abundance!

Cabin porch

We spent a few days in this little cabin in the Olympic National Forest. It was built in 1907, and it just so happens we met the granddaughter of the man who built it, a Mr. Finch. In any case, a rainy day on a porch like this is just heaven. Note the yoga mat.

Not ready to let the summer go. Here’s lavender field from a Sequim, WA field in July.

Caffe D’arte in Seattle

A recent beautiful and sunny late-summer Seattle day. Coffee, sunshine, and hanging fuchsia flower baskets! What’s not to like?

Old-world feel to this lovely Seattle street scene. Window arches on both sides of the street!

Seattle Puget Sound sunset

From my photo archives, a scenic summer sunset down at the waterfront in Seattle, with the Olympic Mountains across the water. The scene is so peaceful but yet so lively, to me.

Tomato harvest

And don’t forget the lemon cucumbers, two kinds of string beans, or the truly sweet Italian plums. Late summer is the best!

April tulips

Browsing my archives, I found some wonderful tulips from a visit to Seattle’s Pike Place Market. We can enjoy tulips in August, right?

Lavender Japanese anemone

If you have a roomy, shady spot for a Japanese anemone, it has such pretty flowers. I love flowers that come back every year.

Home-grown peaches

Our young ‘Frost’ peach tree is about three years old. It doesn’t get peach-leaf curl and has such fragrant, sweet yellow fruit, even ripening in Seattle’s short summers. Time for a cobbler!
