Sunday morning, after a slow start, we drove to West Seattle Nursery to return our rented Mason Bees. We have had fun watching the life cycle of these bees, but interference from squirrels and Yellow Jacket wasps this year, plus the fact that it is always too cold for the bees to hatch out in time to pollinate our apple trees has led us to forgo getting more bees for now. ( For more on rented Mason bees, go here.)
A squall had just passed through, drenching everything, but by the time we emerged from our car the sun was shining. We enjoyed touring the nursery.
Since we had skipped our walk that morning we decided to go over to nearby Lincoln Park and walk a bit in this beautiful old park with a forest in the city.
There is a beach below the bluff but we settled for peek-a-boo views of the sound.
I am a big tree hugger.
This is a redwood grove.
This was a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning. I don't even remember what we did the rest of the day. Maybe it rained more. I don't remember. I'm sure I worked on photos and started getting that week's blog posts ready to publish.
I think I am caught up now.
