Perfection and imperfection

The beautiful calla lilies are beginning to bloom. Something took a bite out of that leaf!

A Pacific Northwest winter scenic view, from a few years ago, taken a block from my house. You can see Vashon Island across the Puget Sound. Happy New Year to all!

Happy Solstice!

Tonight is the year’s longest night in the Northern Hemisphere. In Seattle, today was only eight hours long. But now the light returns! Today is Winter, but we move onwards every day towards the Equinox, and Spring.

The shortest day of the year means the darkest times are behind us.

Snowy morning

The early sunshine the other day was so beautiful. The peach tree leaves were still brightly colored.

The last leaves fall

Just a day or so ago the rain and wind picked up and the leaves began to fall in earnest. The next day they were all gone.

The very last leaves fly from the trees in my front yard

Rain coming

Ooooh, that was one dark sky! Sunny, windy, but not yet rainy. I did no photo adjustment to speak of, either; this image is very faithful to that vista. But just for fun, put “rain coming” in the search bar and see if you like those any.

November rain finally coming, in Seattle, Washington

Red maple tree

This year some trees are doing the magical thing. This maple tree has become completely red, in a friend’s backyard the other day.

Japanese maple leaves in autumn

Not this year, but a few years ago on this date, the leaves were very, very red.

Tree leaves backlit

Got to go on a very short woodsy walk in Central Washington, haven’t for a very long time. The sun peeked out and the leaves above lit up. Bliss for me.

Leafy pattern above. Can you see the shaggy lichen on the branches.

Wave clouds at Galaxy golf course

Hubby was golfing on our little Whidbey Island vacation and saw these wave clouds! And it was so scenic, as well!

Leaf shadow

Irises’ leaves are swords in the garden, and in the right light are a canvas.
