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.

Everyone loves this dinosaur

Haze reflected in pool

Some friends have a truly spectacular backyard. Their flowers are extraordinary, and that’s just the one border. But even at that special place, several smoky days ago, the hazy air was an unwelcome visitor.

Red sun

The air was awful in Seattle this week, due to wildfires in British Columbia and in Washington. This was the worst I’ve ever seen or felt it.

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.

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.

Poinsettias, outdoors

One of the great pleasures of a foreign trip is seeing what grows well there. I was so pleased to see this outdoor display of poinsettia plants in San Miguel de Allende, in Mexico, last month.

Succulent rosettes

On my recent trip to Mexico, I saw some extremely pretty succulents in my sister’s garden. Don’t they look like roses?
