The blanket of snow has been missing from Seattle gardens this January. The weather is quite mild and of course there is rain. In the gardens, there are trees with bare branches and occasional seed pods or dry leaves on them, providing food for visiting birds.
Sometimes we just view the world through a window. November in our garden. Néha a világot csak ablakon keresztül látjuk. November a kertünkben.
Wind and rain, late October and early November, and you have a perfect recipe for a thin or thicker, yellow, brown, red, or multicolor, crunchy and shiny, or wet and sticky formation on horizontal surfaces. I call them leafy carpets.
Happy fall, everyone! Kellemes őszt mindenkinek!
Do you wish to see a truly one-of-a-kind park? The High Line Park of New York City is like no other. My husband Steve and I experienced its autumn beauty while taking a leisurely walk through one third of its entire 1.45 miles length exactly a year ago, when we found ourselves unexpectedly in New York.
I could have spent the first day of summer in Seattle in many different ways. I could have visited one of the beautiful parks of the city including a park on the beach of Puget Sound. I could have gone to a movie to see one of the new films of the season. I could have sat in a café with friends enjoying their company and a cup of tea. The list could be much longer.
Walking in May in Seattle presents an abundance of greenery and the color of a wide variety of amazing flowers. If you like flowers as much as I do, you will certainly appreciate the beauty I tried to capture.
Tulip Festival! What a concept! Americans like to call a variety of events a festival. For example, they plant fields and fields of tulips for getting tulip bulbs for the following year’s season, and they invite the public to view the magnificent fields of colorful flowers – this is called a festival.
Stuck in between two houses – ours and our neighbor’s – stands an old plum tree. A remnant of an old orchard, it’s ninety to one hundred years old.
