Parking lot shadows

I’ve discovered a park with hiking trails near me—Seahurst Park in Burien, WA. I am so pleased to be able to take advantage of them, since I am more mobile than I have been for quite awhile. Five weeks after my first try here, I see a lot of improvement!

Crisp shadows beckon me for a walk in the woods

Carding Mill rose

The roses are looking beautiful at my favorite time of day, summertime early evening.

Forest path

This photo means a lot to me. My health was kind of iffy for a long while, but now I am able to take a short mini-hike in the woods. I have missed this so very much.

Cloud forms

Not sure if this looks like a giant crab or what. What do you see? I love the clear skies Seattle has been having. We are blessed and lucky.

They look like something, but what?

Rose garden shadows

We visited Woodland Park Rose Garden in Seattle yesterday, in perfect weather. I need more pink roses in my life.

Spring garden

Yesterday Seattle had just incredibly gorgeous weather: delightfully warm, sunny, and calm. Did I mention warm and sunny? It has been so very cold and gray this year, so I treasure these rare bursts of heaven. The irises are gearing up.

My garden and part of my neighbor’s. Bluebells and forget-me-nots, plus irises to come.

Cactus flowers

This is what’s commonly called a Christmas cactus, but it’s really a Thanksgiving cactus, or schlumbergera truncata, not a regular cactus. This year, this one is acting more like a Valentine’s Day cactus! When growing them, treat them more like a regular houseplant and don’t let them get super dry, before you soak the soil.

Such showy, iridescent, magenta and white flowers, on this Thanksgiving cactus in bloom.

Overlook vista

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!

Christmas ficus tree

No room this year for a regular Christmas tree, but it looks quite festive anyway, don’t you think?

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.

Rain in December isn’t so bad.
