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.

From my front door towards the street, last week in late afternoon light, my favorite. Indeed the golden hour!

Pansies in the lawn

Pansies like to go everywhere. These purple ones have escaped into my lawn.

Volunteer Park Conservatory outside

Before the fires in British Columbia, Canada started making Seattle air so smoky (see post below), last week saw sunny skies in Seattle. Here is a photo of one of my favorite places in the world, Volunteer Park Conservatory, at the end of the day. The outside plantings this season are especially gorgeous, and these photos don’t do them justice. Love that purple and chartreuse! Bonus flowerbed close-up image below.

Yellow curb

This is one of those images I don’t really have a title for, and don’t really know why I love it, but I keep wanting to look at it, so there might be something there for you, too.
