Threatening sky

Rose gardeners PSA: If it’s going to rain big, go out there and cut your opened roses for bouquets. They’ll just get ruined if you leave them out there.

Rain is coming. Might as well cut roses and bring inside.

Snowy dogwood and hydrangea

The recent snow was beautiful in the garden.

Succulents at Longwood

A few years ago I was lucky enough to tour the incredible Longwood Gardens outside of Philadelphia. My goodness, just stellar. Here is a shot of some succulent plants.

Succulents indoors at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. Aren’t those blue ones wild?

Three succulents

The only name I know for sure is string of pearls for the middle one. Some kind of rosette with pink-gray leaves on the left, and the weirdest one, a cactus with long papery spines that are kind of like fingernails, but very pointy indeed, on the right. We’ll be getting sun in this window all winter.

Smoky sky

We are grateful that the air in Seattle is not worse. We are not dealing with orange visions of armageddon, just “very unhealthy” levels of air pollution, blowing in from fires not very close by, thank goodness.

Rain coming

We are students of clouds and cloud cover in Seattle. It doesn’t actually rain that much, about the same as New York City per year, but we have more cloudy days than any other city, I’ve heard. So we look at the sky a lot to check if it’s clearing up. Or not. Loved these exciting, swirling clouds before some recent rain.

January in California

Here’s a little video clip of a January trip to Sonoma County, CA a few years ago. Scenic barn! Live oak! Birdsong!

And a still from the same scene. I wish you a scenic 2020.

Dark sky at the overlook

A striking sky and water scene, just for a moment, at the overlook near my house. Actual color of the image!

Looks like rain is coming, from the overlook of Puget Sound at Normandy Park WA

Sky over Puget Sound

At the Cove in Normandy Park WA last evening, the sky was mostly gray but quite beautiful, I thought.

Driftwood at Elwha beach

Visiting the mouth of the Elwha River in Washington with my family, where the dam removal four years ago has made huge differences to the ecosystem already, we were curious about some  driftwood creations on the beach.

What’s in there?

Visited Camp Verde, AZ, and watched the rain clouds roll in.
