Emerald Treasures and More

Who says that Northwest is grey and rainy?!
Camano Island, to the north from Seattle. February.

Above, can you spot a boat between the tree branches?

Old means beautiful.

Beach time!

I like how the water is divided here by the tree -
one part is light and another is dark.

*
I can look endlessly on the vertical lines of the grass
and the hanging from nowhere little branch.

Mosses are gorgeous ....
when they grow not on the roof of my house.

Madrona's bark color reminds me terracota garden pots.

I like the geometry on this picture above.

Emerald treasures.

  6. Wow! I do envy you your weather and the beautiful scenery. Lovely photo's. I have never thought of moss as being pretty but the colour of that moss is really nice.

  8. Absolutely gorgeous! I absolutely love moss. I think we live in the moss capitol of the world. I encourage it to grow everywhere but the roof. It's that aura of antiquity it implies.

    Love the terra cotta madrone and the tree stumps that look like sculptures. Love the BLUE SKY. What a treat.

  9. Thank you everyone for nice comments. I'm glad you liked the photos. I am absolutely different person when it is sunny outside. And green is my favorite color. Any advice what to do with this beautiful moss when it grows on the lawn?
