Great blue heron

While at the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks in Seattle the other day, we saw a great blue heron from pretty close by, looking for lunch. A tough job.

McCaw Hall wall

These metallic and gleaming color fields are so very beautiful to me. And padded! We went to see the ballet and this was a real bonus.

Geese in a park

Got to visit the Carl S. English Jr. Botanical Garden near the Ballard Locks in Seattle the other day. So lovely. Here are some large geese feeding on a lawn.

Puppy at street fair

This German Shepherd/Great Pyrenees mix puppy was a show stopper at the U-District Street Fair in Seattle today. Winter is just nine weeks old and will be about 110 lbs. when fully grown. This photo does not really show how utterly fluffy he is, but it does show the joy he brought to crowds and crowds of people in the few minutes I watched.

Spring blooms in the garden

The weather has been so very warm and sunny. I adore it but know the rhodies and dogwood won’t last long in this heat.

Pink dogwood at left, and red rhododendrons with pink weigela between them. Iris buds lower left.
