Photos: Sunny day brings out shades of blue in Shoreline

It's crisp and cold out - but oh so beautiful. The blanket of cloud will probably be back soon but we can enjoy the sunny days in the meantime.

Speaking of blanket of clouds, look at this:

This was the sky last weekend. Jan Hansen took this on Sunday over the Shoreline Sea. I saw the leading edge of this cloud at the same time, over Lake Washington with pretty much the same view.

So most people in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park at that time had dark, gray skies with possibly only a glimpse of light.

It reminded me of how many times I've been surprised about how early it got dark, without even realizing it wasn't dark - I was just under a cloud cover. Of course it was a lot warmer than this week!

One more photo. My hardy Christmas cactus has been blooming since before Thanksgiving. It persists in spite of my under and overwatering. (No pictures - there are too many gardeners among the readers and the blossoms look pretty bad).

This photo was taken yesterday. This rhodie is normally the last one to bloom - and it did bloom months ago. With the warm weather the last month it started blooming again. It had planned to keep going - see all the buds? But the cold weather the past two days made the blossoms start to shrivel.

I think it thought it was a Christmas cactus. It was pretty and cheerful while it lasted.
