It Could Still Be Summer Here

Birding has been slow locally. So slow I haven’t taken a picture in my last two outings I feel is worth sharing, or even keeping, for that matter. I did manage to get one good soccer shot, but somehow managed to delete it in the process of shooting new photos. I have to remember to download pictures even when I’m not thrilled about the day’s shots.

My best shots came yesterday when Leslie and I took Leslie’s friend Mary for a walk at the Pt Defiance Garden. Though all the annuals have been taken from the beds and the roses are looking weathered, the dahlias were brilliant, ranging from simply elegant,

to simply exquisite.

  1. To my eyes, fall is by far the most colorful time in the coastal Pacific Northwest. Your yearly dahlia photos are part of that for me. Beautiful photos, Loren!
