I’ve been trying to organize a trip to the Skagit Valley this past week.  Each day it didn’t happen for one reason or another.  Plans have now shifted to next week when the tulips should be in bloom.  Such a gorgeous vista – I want to see it LIVE.

Autumn Is Coming August 27, 2016

We went up to the Skagit Valley for a 24 hour getaway.  It was wonderful.  It is such a beautiful area between the mountains and the sea.  Fields of fruit trees, flowers, corn and much more .  This morning I took an early morning amble outside our bedroom.  I thought I was in the Garden of Eden, a pear tree, a plum tree, fruit just dropping at my feet – and then a cat appeared to confirm my feeling.  She/he scampered off and disappeared in the field of corn.

Yesterday evening there was a great squawking overhead.  We went out on our deck to see what that was all about.  GEESE – IN  V  FORMATION.  Superb!

I had the intention of possibly finding/buying a painting of this beautiful valley – but failing that I feel inspired to try creating one oneself.  There is a lot of subject matter!
