Fall color trees

Gotta love the colors of autumn.

Brilliant fall colors light up the October landscape even in the Pacific Northwest

Hailstorm

We were in Issaquah, WA, finishing up dinner after a day selling jewelry at Salmon Days, and the sky just opened. I have never seen a such hailstorm (with lightning! thunder!). The roar of the hail and rain, an inch of hail on the ground, and rivers of water and ice because the leaves and hail clogged all the drains. Expect the unexpected, I guess.

Lyndhurst Mansion

Visited the Gothic Revival Lyndhurst Mansion in Tarrytown, NY, on the Hudson River. Naturally, I was particularly interested in the rose garden. Just this once, I am including FOUR photos in this post.

I’m likin’ lichen

Lichen is so beautiful. How can you not like it? Like frilly gray flowers…

Short break

Hello, dear blog readers. Various technical difficulties including changing web hosts are creating a break in my usual happy blogging. But never fear, not forever. Another week or so and we’ll be back. Here’s a pretty picture of my favorite place, Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, with this year’s version of its lovely fall display on a dark day.

Bucket of roses

The weather in Seattle is supposed to get seriously rainy, after some very fine fall weather. The only thing to do is go out and cut all the open roses for bouquets, because they’ll only get destroyed. Bonus image below of the bouquets!

Cut the open roses ahead of the rain coming

And here are the bouquets they made, on my kitchen counter.

Fall begins

In Seattle, it’s remarkable how close to the calendar the turn of the season feels. This week begins Fall, and sure enough, the trees are coloring up quite nicely.

Tree shadows

Visiting suburban Connecticut a couple of weeks ago on a marvelously clear day…
