 Still not a much rain, but still gray, gray, gray! Hope all of you had a great Father's Day weekend and wishing you a wonderful week ahead! Enjoy!

What a wonderful life I've had! I only wish I'd realized it sooner.
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.

Well that was a surprise Sylvia, to scroll down and find that incredibly orange beady eye looking at moi haha! Gorgeous shots and the Dale Carnegie quote is unfortunately so true. We actually had a bit of sun today and 22C, short lived back to rain tomorrow, but it was nice!

You got some wonderful photos in spite of gray weather. Your portrait of the dove is marvelous, and I like the quote by Colette under it.

I hope that volcano (Mount Rainier?) will continue to sleep! It looks like a sleeping beauty indeed.

Karen said...

Fab photos again Sylvia! That pigeon pic is just marvellous!

Randi said...

The mountain is amazing! So beautiful och like a painting!

That first shot is spectacular, that must be the last evening light. Hopefully you'll get some summer soon. In the meantime enjoy what you've got, at least your state isn't burning up!

Gaelyn said...

It may be gray most of the time but that clear sky over Rainier is marvelous. Plus all those colorful flowers are magnificent.

Carver said...

It may be gray but your world is still colorful and beautiful with that magical mountain, flowers and golden light on the water.

The pigeon doesn't seem at all camera shy. It must know it is dealing with a famous face that now can be found on coinage. :)

I am in awe of that spectacular view of Mount Rainier.
Thanks for sharing your gorgeous world.
Be well and happy, Sylvia.

Hi there - pretty much ever time you post a picture of Rainier I go and look at the slides I took a long, long time ago. After that I tend to visit flight web-sites!
