April Photos

A few photos taken in the Emerald City in the last few days ...

"The Mountain" of the Pacific Northwest
Mount Rainier -- 14,409' (4,392 m)
Towering above Port of Seattle
and into the clouds. 

A lady snaps the view from Kerry Park ...
a favorite spot to overlook the city.
And a runner up for our Good Fence entry.

Afternoon sun creates thousands of sparkles on the water
of Puget Sound

Our entry for this week's Good Fences.
It looks pretty good to us, how about you?
Linking up today with Good Fences. Thanks to Tex for hosting!

We like this tree!

Another tree in a little park in the Magnolia neighborhood.
The bench gives you a some perspective on the size of the tree.
Great spot to sit and ponder just about anything.

The new leaves and angle of the sunlight almost
make this tree shine.

We love these in their fall colors ... but isn't the green beautiful too?
These flowers seemed to be glowing in the bright afternoon sun.
A rose is a rose ...  but this one is wild!
Thank you for stopping by John's Island. Can you believe April has gone by so fast ... how was your April?

  7. Beautiful pictures! Yesterday I left the house without my raincoat, a mistake, since it was sunny AND rainy all day long. Love your Rainier pictures especially, and the flowers and trees. :-)

  9. That great mountain on your first picture, is that a volcano? No idea. I love mountains because we have no one in our small country here. I have never seen a mountain with my own eyes. They seems so impossant!

    I also love the 1000 of sparkles on the water. Beautiful photo! And green leaves? No only blossom here. Thanks for the nice photos.
