A Rare Sunny Day in Seattle


Looking across Lake Washington at the Cascade Mountains. Lots of new snow!


Daffodils reaching for the sun across a side-walk. Or has heavy rain tipped them?


Early blooming cherry blossoms were a treat to behold! Saw while walking in an alley.


I loved spotting this adorable little pot.
