I woke to sunshine this morning! It was a pleasant change from all the gray gloom we’ve been having. I grabbed my Easter supplies, which I had purchased and had “on deck” for just a morning, and headed outside to take some photos in the grass.
I definitely want to work with these subjects more, on my next sunny opportunity, here’s what we have so far.
We had some sunshine today, and though Toby (the dog) and I didn’t get out as much as we probably should have, we did venture into the yard this afternoon (as well as the dog park, I’m not a terrible dog owner yet).
I like how the sun was backlighting the veins of this seedpod
This small rose is either a hanger-on from last fall or an early bird..either way, I’m happy he’s here!
Sorry little sister. I know you’re going to hate this one.
I’m thinking it’s a seasonal thing, but these guys are EVERYWHERE around the house I’m staying at right now. It’s so cool, because you don’t even see them except for certain times of the day, when the sun shines perfectly through them.
This fellow (or lady??) was in the window, but most of them were up between the tree branches, at least 10 feet off the ground. (This is nice because it means I won’t be inadvertently walking through them). One was trying to create his (her?) web right across the long driveway to the house.
I know, I know, you don’t cause the weather, you just report it. Nevertheless, you have made me a very happy girl. Not only have we had wonderful, sunny, and warm weather the past few days, but we are going to get MORE! All the way until Thursday (and maybe beyond)!
*sigh of happiness*
It is so lovely to wake up to sunshine, and to be able to have all the windows open to the outside world is wonderful.
I wonder if this is how it’s going to be all summer? *dares not to hope*
It’s been warm and sunny here in the Puget Sound during the last few days, and the streak is supposed to continue through Tuesday! Up until now, we’ve only been honored with one or sometimes two days in a row before the rain and cold move back in.
It’s funny though, because as some of you already know, our apartment is blocked by three giant pine trees on the deck/living room/kitchen side. As I sit here at the kitchen table, I am wearing a sweater and slippers, although it is supposedly in the mid-70′s outside! When I walk into the bedroom I am always surprised to feel the warmth coming in through the window there.
The following photos are from the last time we had warm days, and when Isaac and I visited this shoreline park we both felt as if we were in Southern California! There were so many people, some of them in swimwear enjoying an ice cream cone, and others playing volleyball.
The sun was really bright that day, as you can see, but I love the shadows cast, and even the negative space that is the result of the bright sun, washing out the sky. What do you think?
