Seattle Japanese Garden 06/07/2013

Japanese Garden20130607_0003 I went with a new friend to wander the Japanese Gardens which is located in the Arboretum there.  To be honest, I thought we were going to the Kuboto Gardens, but I learned that is a different Japanese Garden in the Seattle ares, so it will have to be another trip at another time.

extending out their crooked branches and fiery leaves like fingers reaching to touch and brush your skin as you pass.

>This is the sky outside my apartment today!!! Life is beautiful!!!

And for those of you who may not know what Autumn really looks like, check out the colors of my trees! The orange one on the left went from green to this luminous orange in a matter of a couple of days and the one on the right is turning almost a blood red.

 

Autumn 2008

This is the sky outside my apartment today!!! Life is beautiful!!!

And for those of you who may not know what Autumn really looks like, check out the colors of my trees! The orange one on the left went from green to this luminous orange in a matter of a couple of days and the one on the right is turning almost a blood red.

 

The Night Sky

Just had to add the clouds from tonight.

And these are some of the skylines from my patio. Just in case there is any question why I love it up here.

These are pictures of the sky from the ferry on the trip we made to Whitby Island.

Ok, so I have often been accused of being delusional or taking my own private trips, but I swear there is a peace sign in the clouds.

Just never remember seeing clouds like this when I was down south.

And a pretty Thistle plant
