Local Color

We have been lucky enough to have three sunny days in a row on our Washington visit! Everyone talks about the weather and having to adjust to the bright light. The sound of mowing and blowing seems to come from everywhere. In our hometown we water and water and still may not save the plants, trees, and grass. Here, even the fields are constantly mowed down to keep nature from reclaiming it all.  There's a delightful profusion of local color. 

We came across this cool recycled glass sculpture outside the water reclamation facility.

So nice for you to come along! Hope you're enjoying a beautiful Pink Saturday!

  1. Thanks so much for sharing your trip. It is so lush and beautiful.

  2. We once visited the Pacific Northwest coast on a road trip, and distinctly remember it raining hard on the Washington side of the state line, and not at all on the Oregon side!

  3. Lovely colors and lovely photos, Jacqueline! I recently had a photoshoot for my photography class project " simple things talking in color " and was amazed to find bright, vibrant colors all around me ( even in a not so colorful city as Toronto). I guess, what we see depends mainly on what we look for ...
    Have a colorful summer!

  4. I would love to visit up there. And, your photos make me want to all the more! Beautiful photos. Just love all those gorgeous flowers and loooove the pink bottles in the glass sculpure. Glad you are getting sunshine for your trip there.

  5. Gorgeous pics, what a neat bottle sculpture, and I sure wish I was there with ya instead of here in this heat!

  6. So many people I follow going to Washington, but me... I miss it, it's home of all homes. Thanks for this beautiful post, took me home for a little bit. And while it's baking hot here, in the South, I've been baking, come see it, please. :)

  7. Jacqueline,
    You are surrounded by beauty.Those wild flowers are so pretty.LOVE that recycled glass bottle sculpture.Have a great day!

  8. Your photos are beautiful I like the glass sculptures, very clever. Washington climate is a lot like the coast of Holland where I live except for the mountains. I am praying for rain in parched New Mexico and Colorado. xo Jenny
