A Feast For The Eyes

Precious Tulips

Both yesterday and today I was able to capture some colorful shots which bring to life the color of spring from a visit to the West Seattle Chinese Garden and the idyllic life of Seattle houseboat living from today’s waffle breakfast gathering after yoga class.  Enjoy these photos and the captions that tell their stories.

Simone and I went to the Chinese Peony Garden in West Seattle.  Simone read about these fabulous peony trees planted there, so we had to go!  We found that hardly any of the peony trees were in bloom and there were very few buds.  We felt lucky to see this yellow beauty.

Another yellow peony.  Please don't kill ants if you see them on your peonies!  No ants, no peonies!

After yoga this morning, the class enjoyed waffles at Carol's boathouse.  I so enjoy looking at the colorful houseboats.

"What can I bring?" "Flowers." Sometimes you get what you ask for!  Lilacs, rhododendron, Solomon's Seal in a vase!
