Gardens, Patios & More

Hi Everyone!  Hope you're having a great weekend.  We are headed off to a little family reunion on a nearby island - I'm excited to see family and also explore a different corner of the Seattle area.  I love being a tourist in my own city!

We are expecting lovely weekend weather, but I know the Seattle rain is right around the corner.  That has made me want to make sure we soak up every ounce of sunshine while we can!  I'd be happy to spend an afternoon in any of these - see what you think:

A great place for a stroll!  
There is something very peaceful about tiny gravel crunching under one's feet.

enchanting poetic wanderlust- amazing installation
A little gallery walk.  Wow.

Love that great sculpture and the manicured greenery!

Stunning.

This brings back great memories of European adventures.

I saved the simplest - and best - for last.  
Mother Nature took care of all the design on this one!
