The Roses are Still Beautiful

I’m amazed by how many beautiful roses I am still seeing in my neighborhood even though it is now August. In April the roses were in full bloom so I thought their season would end early.

I think this collection of roses is particularly interesting because they are so close in color, yet each is different.

January 2015 in Seattle

While the Northeastern part of the U.S. is bracing for major winter storms, the Pacific Northwest is experiencing record heat.  I visited Seward Park in Seattle today and the beauty around me was stunning.
