Heads up! There is nature to be seen all around us. Fall is approaching and the sky is changing and sunrise is a little later.
These two photos of the sunrise was just so glorious that I had to stop. Bonus in that I got a little crow celebrating the dawn.
Last weekend I was drawn to this pale yellow bush highlighting a rose. Nature’s color palette is wide open with fall and summer colliding.
Then there was Discovery Park that I visited today. Forest, Puget Sound views, and a grass field below old historic Fort Lawton.
First the trees. This maple is really two trees in a forever embrace. They are huge and leave us mortals in awe of their size and age.
Children want to be near trees. Here are two little ones building a fort at the foot of another old giant. I am sure the tree is honored that they want to be near him.
As I circled the Loop Trail at Discovery Park I came to the bluff view of Puget Sound. To my delight I had timed it to see three Washington State Ferries clustered together.
Turning away from the water view you are greeted with a grass wonderland. I want to go running through it and flop down to gaze at the sky.
Weeks ago I walked down to the newly remodeled park next to the Fauntleroy Ferry Dock. A raven sits upon an old snag looking out at the beach and the ferry launching to Vashon Island.
Don’t be fooled! I leave you with the closeup of the Raven Sculpture at Cover Park. Raven is the creator of the universe. He is holding his price possession, the sun, in his beak
Remember to look up and smell the roses. Beauty and nature’s bounty is there for the taking.
