Perennial sunflower

A friend gave me a start of this perennial sunflower plant last spring. It flowers in September: YAY!

Dancing dinosaur at Zombie Fest NW

Oh, my goodness this was a fun afternoon in Normandy Park WA yesterday at Zombie Fest NW 2018. A dinosaur showed up and started to dance to the great Aqua Nets music.

The crowd went wild!

Everyone loves this dinosaur

Rose bouquet

Rain is predicted, so I went out and cut some roses.

I’m posting a second photo of this same bouquet from a different angle. Which do you prefer?

This is in honor of the 25,000th comment received on this blog, on the Cherry Tomatoes post below (thank you, Magical Mystery Teacher!). Every single comment I have ever received here has been kind and positive. What a fine group of people are photo-blog visitors!

Dramatic sunset at the Cove

A few weeks ago the sky was incredible at sunset. The Cove in Normandy Park is at Puget Sound, so it’s salty but quiet water.

Burien dancers

I don’t know who these dancers were or why they were floating down the main drag of Old Town Burien in hats like flowers, but there they were the other evening. They were starting to attract a following, too.

Looking like flowers, a group of dancers wafted beautifully down 152nd St. in Burien, WA.

Chicks for sale

Was in a new-to-me Wilco/True Value store in Bremerton, WA. I enjoyed the shopping experience very much, plus they had baby chicks. #iamsofluffy

Forest scene

Last week went camping in Gifford Pinchot National Forest in Washington, not too far from Mt. Rainier. This was the view from our campsite one morning.
