May 12 of 12

Yes, I know it's the 13th. Stop yelling already.

These pictures were all taken on Tuesday, May 12, 2009 in Seattle, Washington. I just hadn't gotten around to posting them yet.

For your enjoyment ... my 12 of 12:

7:00 a.m.: Let's get soaking wet.

7:10 a.m.: Hi there.

7:50 a.m.: Stormy weather.

8:02 a.m.: Cool new building by my office. The siding reminds me of an old wooden ship.

(We now take a 9 hour break while Matterdays does work work work work work)

5:22 p.m.: Leave the driving to us.

5:24 p.m.: The last time I was in this restaurant, it was a Hamburger Mary's. That was a long time ago. I think I was in my 20's.

5:24 p.m.: Same intersection. I love the sign on the left - "Got a wild one?" Why, yes. Yes, we certainly do.

5:41 p.m.: Baby birds. These finches are just a couple weeks old. Aren't they cute?

5:42 p.m.: The obligatory shot of the backyard from the balcony.

5:47 p.m.: A boy and his camera.

6:02 p.m.: The little garden by the front porch. The tree is a "Floating Cloud" Japanese Maple. Gorgeous.

6:03 p.m.: Clematis getting ready to bloom near the maple. Yay!

Thus endeth the 12 of 12 for this month. Please exit to the right and take all belongings with you. Thank you.

Can I take someone else's belongings with me instead? You could have done 13 of 13, you know. And don't hang around that Greyhound depot....could lead to trouble.

There used to be a Hamburger Mary's here? I never knew! I thought they were just in CA.

THERE it is. I was wondering where your 12 went!

Yes, Matt, Mocha can come to play. I'll fax her right over :)

What a gray day in Seattle. Didn't stop you getting some nice pictures, though. Are the baby birds yours? They're really cute. The Japanese Maple is gorgeous. I've never seen that particular variety. See you next month.

I love your yard. Can I just camp out there for the summer?

Scooter said...

Deja vu.

I've seen these subjects somewhere...

I enjoyed your photos. I particularly like the shower head, the finches and the view of the back yard. Thanks for sharing...

I love your garden, you guys work hard and it shows!

Sorry I'm so behind on commenting - been a very busy time with lots of travel! Even my 12 of 12 was only up on the 15th!
