Weekend Reflections

Weekend Reflections is hosted by James each week beginning Friday at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time. It's another wonderful way of opening your eyes to new and different kinds of beauty. Click on the web address under the blog title and sign up to play with us!  We actually had some sun yesterday, but by the time I was able to start looking for reflections, it was packing it's clouds and moving on -- apparently another long vacation from Seattle! So, back to the files! I do promise to have new photos someday -- hopefully soon!

All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
