We flew in Sat and got here about 4pm, got back to our hotel then went into Seattle for a bit of site-seeing.
My favorite thing about Seattle is the Public Market. I've never seen anything like the gorgeous flowers that they have there. Whenever I'm able to go I take about a gillion pictures, one of the ones from last year is already super-enlarged and hanging above our fireplace. Here are some of my favorites from this year.
I love these little purple blooms
I was amazed at the construction of these flowers, all the perfectly formed and placed cylindrical petals. There was a burning in my ovaries for a macro lense so I could take super detailed pics of them.
I just loved this simple white bloom.
I forget the name on this red one in the foreground, but it really made me catch my breath. My camera skills don't do it justice but it was truly gorgeous.
You know I love me some vegetables!
Looking over Puget Sound.
Anyway I love the mountains and the lush greenery that surround Seattle. I'm amazed that on our two hour drive there is such a change; that we go from city, to lush mountains, to crazy dessert. I can't wait to share it with my hubs sometime.
