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.

Three birds

A few weeks ago when the skies were so smoky from Canadian wildfires, there were some beautiful moments.

Reflected sunset

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

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.

Smoky sky at the Cove

Seattle is getting a lot of smoke in the air from the fires near Vancouver, BC. Smoky skies can be pretty scenic, no?
