It's hard to believe that it's September in Seattle! It's more like summer -- NO rain for 41 days!! Lots of sunshine and blue skies and I'm not complaining!! But whatever the season, it is a beautiful world! And my personal world is filled with heavenly skies, memories of summers lovely flowers, a wonderful four-legged friend, the promise of glorious fall colors, and my own corner full of books and wonderful memories! Enjoy every moment of every season!!

in fruits.

No rain for 41 days!? Are you sure you live in Seattle. :)) Wonderful quotes, as usual, Sylvia.

That's a very long time without rain Sylvia, we do also have spells like that here, but just as we are in our first week of spring, the weather is cold and WILD outside as I write this.

41 days without rain just seems impossible for Seattle. That's a gorgeous collage. I love the low light and shadows on the bookcase: That makes me think of cozy reading in the winter time.

TexWisGirl said...

wow! that's a long time w/o rain for your area!

Lois said...

41 days without rain in Seattle must be some kind of record for sure! I'm definitely looking forward to autumn here and some relief from this heat. Happy Labor Day Sylvia!

Books and the way the sun (in your photo) shines a light on them, a dear pet and the fall colors ahead are all favorite things that make life more enjoyable. And with no rain for 41 days, I think the bluest skies really ARE in Seattle. :)

Seattle has not had rain for 41 days, wow! Is that a record? I loved your mosaic especially your puppy dog. Lovely photos. Have a wonderful week.

Beautiful shots. That's a long time without rain where you live. Hard to believe it's already September.

No rain! They will be calling it a drought soon. Wonderful seasonal photos and accompanying text.

Adam Jones said...

I don't think we go 41 hours without rain here in Manchester, England. If only.

Dianne said...

Wonderful soft mellow light drifting in on your book-case Sylvia What a beautiful season to sit and watch the leaves turn.
Have a lovely week.

41 days without rain in Seattle? That's longer than we've been without rain! I hope you're enjoying the end of the holiday weekend, Sylvia, and I'm sure your four-legged friend is happy as always!

Lovely mosaic, Sylvia. As we greet Spring, autumn is arriving on your doorstep...

Lowell said...

Your collage is so cool...brought a big smile to my face, I'm wondering if the lack of rain will affect the turning of the leaves. Autumn is a wonderful season here in Ocala, too. Unlike south Florida, we do experience changes in weather. When I lived in south Florida I read that Miami has a larger average rainfall than Seattle...and from what our daughter tells us it's been raining a lot down there recently, unlike Seattle. Sometimes it seems that climate change may be turning everything upside down.

Hope your week is filled with fun things!

Leovi said...

Delicious and varied mosaic, very nice. Greetings.

wonderful mosaic. It is hard to believe that you haven't had rain for so long. But we also shattered records this month in terms of lack of rainfall. How nice for august ;-)

kulasa said...

lovely collage....I love the play of shadows on the bookshelves and the cute dog shot and yes the wondrous sky and colorful flowers and the quote on spring...may you be always blessed on your side of the world...

That's a long time with no rain! Hopefully September brings some. Love your collage!

Leora said...

Is it autumn already? Your skies are lovely. And I love how the light hits your books.

Genie said...

Baimbridge got a little bit one evening the week we were there. Otherwise it was hotter than any of the trips before. This mosaic is definitely your world and it is beautiful as I have said so many, many times. This week I started posting the photos from Bud's 2nd three week hike thru the mts. of Maine and New Hampshire. Sorry I am so late doing it. Genie

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
