A few days ago when the sun was still out, we decided to walk around Green Lake, which is rather close to the University of Washington, and this time take our camera. There is one spot where you can see the Space Needle downtown on a nice day! And nice it was.
The yellow flags were out in full force all around the lake. (Our iris are blooming here at home also and so are the poppies. Purple and orange, very nice.)
The last time we walked around the lake just a few weeks ago, we saw 17 turtles, big ones and little ones. This day we only saw two, probably because it was later in the day and rather chilly.
These were just two of the ducks enjoying the day.
And yesterday we noticed this columbine blooming in our backyard; it's a volunteer that I just couldn't pull out.
Out in the flowerbox on the front deck, these little critters were having a party on one of the little violas. They were huddled in two clumps until I bent over for a closer look; then they scattered. Little yellow spider-babies, I guess.
Not lot of crafting going on when the sun's out!
