Snow! Lots of snow in Seattle! That means a lot of photos.
|Gradka isn't so sure about this|
We went for a walk this afternoon, to the Admiral district, in order to stock up on a few more provisions because, sadly, it turns out that I am the sort to worry about running out of things: milk and eggs, in this case, though we also picked up chocolate bars and cheap sparkling, just in case. Don't ask me in case of what. As we walked, the sun came out and there was blue sky, but on occasion gusts of wind would blow flurries of snow from the trees all about us.
We walked across Hiawatha Park, an Olmsted Brothers creation (of sorts):
|I don't know who this man is but I think he's mad to be standing where he is.|
|One of my favorite streets in West Seattle; it feels so New Englandy|
|Not the largest snowmen we saw, but some of the cutest|
And, of course, birds (mostly in the backyard):
|Robin on the line: will you hold?|
|Cottonbelly looking particularly spherical|
|Male thumbprint waiting for a table to open up at the suet feeder|
|Taken from inside through two layers of glass for the vaseline on the lens effect|
|She did not so much care for it|
There is talk of more snow to come and we assume there will be no farmers market tomorrow. Perhaps we'll blow the dust off the sled and join the crowds on one of the local streets. Or maybe we'll stay inside and read our books like rational adults.
