Yesterday, I got back from a wonderful week in Seattle. I'd never been there before; I'm adding it to the top of my list of favorite places. So much is different about the landscape of the Northwest, from the trees to the waterfalls to the garden flowers. I have to admit that I'm incredibly jealous. I can't identify everything pictured, but here's what I DO know: Chilean Pine or Monkey Puzzle tree, Torch Lillies, Snoqualmie Falls, and Poppies. I don't know what the other trees are; they're just pretty.
