Pat and Connie have a beautiful fountain made from a tree stump and its roots. At any time of year it’s striking and unique.
For most of last week we barely got above freezing temperatures and the fountain was magical with ice cascading in glacial stillness.
Landscape ice is a novelty for this former Californian. But when it forms as it did on this fountain it seems simply glorious to me.
I’ve seen ice sculptures that are beautiful art forms. But Mother Nature does a mighty nice job on her own, don’t you think?
Sequim and lavender are synonymous. This bee can tell you all about it.
In my humble opinion this is one of the best view spots of the Sequim valley. It’s a view from the Dungeness Cemetery, where yesterday’s pictures were also taken. I’ve posted it before and will no doubt post it again.
The local paper had a special section recently that highlighted “she sheds,” the feminine alternative to man caves. A few days later I came across this sweet little outbuilding. The setting is nicely landscaped and the building itself has a cute vibe that would inspire shed envy.
She sheds are where the lady of the house might retreat to creative pursuits. Crafts, artwork, sewing. Stuff without motor oil, sawdust and the like.
I go to The Lodge at Sherwood Village from time to time and have always enjoyed the water features and landscaping that welcomes visitors. I recently walked behind one of the rock waterfalls to find this swing set up to enjoy the view. On a clear day the Olympic Mountains would be framed in the distance.
This stream flows from the waterfall under the walkway.
I love the landscaping around the restaurants at the Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course. This time of year it’s especially striking. (We go for the burgers, not golf.)
This is one kind of snow I don’t mind seeing. Flowering trees along Fifth Avenue have showered the landscape with pink petals. Spring fever, anyone?
