Tom and I bought glass scraps here at Bedrock Industries, a business that makes decorative products from fused recycled glass. It is located near the south end of the Ballard Bridge, and is fun to prowl through.
Then we went on to Ballard Reuse, where we were looking for an old window, not too big, that we could move up to from picture frames, to try more faux stained glass. We did buy one smallish old window. Someday it may be a finished product. I didn't take photos of either place, since I was busy searching for treasures and visiting.
The six of us enjoyed lunch in Ballard at the Hi-Life, located in the old Ballard Fire House. Then we bid our fellow field trippers adieu, and since it wasn't raining, and the sun even played peek-a-boo, we drove over to the Ballard Locks on the Ship Canal for an easy stroll and a search for things blooming.
Oregon grape (Mahonia)
Edgeworthia, so early, so weird and yet lovely close up, and with a heavenly fragrance.
Snowdrops and cyclamen.
More helebores, going sideways. :-/
Viburnun, maybe burkwoodii, also very fragrant, with only a few clusters open so far.
Labeled Japanese apricot, an early Prunus.
I've thrown out a bunch of photos that insist on going sideways, but I had to keep this tree with wonderful orange berries. It looked like it was blooming from a distance.
This is what it is. Sorry about the crick in your neck now.
Daffodils will soon be blooming.
I hope you're finding time and opportunity to do something that makes you feel in the pink.
