Eclipse crescents

Here is the pattern of pinhole crescents projected on my house at the peak of this morning’s eclipse, courtesy of our large cedar tree. Where I live the sun was about 92% covered by the moon.

Tiny spaces between leaves and branches of a tree make a giant multi-pinhole camera for today’s eclipse

Reflected sunset

At a lovely waterside terrace of some friends last evening, you could see the sunset over Puget Sound reflected in their windows.

Red and pink rose garden

My roses in the front yard are loving this warm, dry weather, even though the sky is so hazy with smoke from the Canada wildfires.

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.

Horizontal rainbow

Not sure what this sideways cloud rainbow is really called, but it sure is beautiful and unusual. Taken by friend and neighbor Dave Heston, over our house!

Black petunias

I’d heard about these black petunias and finally saw them in person. Truly black, surprisingly pretty, almost iridescent. I believe they call the variety Black Mamba.

Mammatus clouds

I’ve never seen these clouds in this area (Seattle). I believe they are called mammatus. Yes, there were thunderstorms later.

Cloud forms

Before yesterday’s thunderstorms (not too common in the Seattle area), the clouds were getting ready.
