IT’S SNOWING – April 17, 2015

It’s Friday and we’ve got time to get in one more walk this week. But before we walk I wanted to share my back yard with you where it’s snowing!

OK, it’s not really snowing, at least not real snow but cherry blossoms instead.

Unfortunately they are not from my cherry tree but from my neighbors “HUGE” cherry tree.

Did you notice my lilac tree in the foreground? It is really pretty against the backdrop of the cherry blossoms.

OK let’s walk! I went out to the wharf but got stopped by this interesting sunrise. It was a beautiful sunrise but it was being blocked by shore clouds. The clouds partially parted and I snapped this photo over Penn Cove. Notice the eagle flying near the top center.

Yesterday our cat, Ms. Kitty Kitty, was posing on our front porch so I took her picture. Not a bad looking lady for being sixteen¬†years old. I took it through a window and it turned out very different. She’s actually all gray and not green/blue.

Thanks for walking with me and come join me again next week. In the meantime have a great weekend!

MONSTER WALK

This morning’s walk was a “Monster Walk”, not because I walked a long way but instead because of the route I took. Here’s my 4.28 mile¬† “Monster Walk”!

The first thing I spotted was this neatly trimmed lilac tree.

Just as I was going into Kruger Woods the “Monopoly Houses” caught my eye. At least they remind me of Monopoly houses.

Out on the Coupeville Wharf this pair of Pigeon Guillemont’s were nicely posed on the gas dock.

As I was leaving the wharf the rays of the morning sun started shining through the clouds creating this rather spectacular photo.

Well that was fun, thanks for walking with me. I’ll catch you again tomorrow!

SIGNS

Happy Monday all, I hope you are ready for a good week of walking as the weather is supposed to be spectacular all week long. By Thursday it could be in the low 80’s F in Seattle which means around 75 here on the island.

I kind of went crazy this morning in the lovely weather so I hope you don’t get bored with my photos before you get to the end.

At first I noticed some new signs that I liked. These two were on the same house.

This old farm sign is out on the Ebey Prairie.

I’ve always liked this mail box and the morning sun really made it pop.

The remainder of today’s photos are not signs but I liked them a lot and wanted to share them with you.

I love this farm and have taken numerous photos of it. What caught my eye this morning was the crop. I showed you that same crop a couple of weeks ago when it was first coming up. Our wonderful spring weather has really made them jump out of the rich prairie soil here on the island. I also like the Olympic Mountains peaking through the clouds in the background.

This Lilac bush was really showing its colors in the morning light. This is just a tiny portion of the bush, it’s really big!

And finally two photos of this old barn. The first is well lighted which really made it stand out. The second is what I found inside the door to the right.

Thanks for walking with me today and I look forward to having you along for the rest of the week!
