Summer time is my favorite of all seasons. It comes after so much anticipation and seems to be over in no time at all. Included in this email are some of my favorite photos from this summer, including some from this past weekend in Cle Elum and Roslyn.
I truly love taking photos. And living in Washington state makes taking a great photo easy to do.
A visit to Vashon and a hike on Shinglemill Creek Trail
Biondo Farm tomatoes!
Heritage Tomatoes (Biondo Farm). It was a 95 degree day so we missed out on Pizza Night at Karen Biondo’s farm (who wants to fire a 700 degree oven on a 95 degree day??)
Dahlias Forever! Karen Biondo’s farm
We saw a wonderful paper art show at the Blue Heron Art Center (Vashon Center for the Arts). The new art center is magnificent!
