In our yard, we have some Japanese Maple trees. The one that came first, when I bought my house in June of 2000, started out small. When we got married and my husband moved in with me in 2003, he dubbed it “Fluffy”. Here is Fluffy in three seasons.
In Spring and Summer, its leaves are a mixture of green and maroon. However, in the Autumn, a beautiful transformation occurs.
Nearly overnight, its leaves turn a bright red. I was flabbergasted the first time I saw this. Then, in deep Winter, it loses all its leaves.
Here are three Pacific Northwest waterfalls.
Snoqualmie Falls, on the Snoqualmie River.
Tumwater Falls on the Deschutes River.
And a video of a tiny waterfall I saw along the rock wall near the trail down the side of the Tumwater Falls.
Three different kinds of birds in our back yard.
They are, from left, a Red-breasted Nuthatch, a Bewick’s Wren, and a Downy Woodpecker.
Can you spot all three squirrels in this photo? This was just this morning.
Finally, three high-voltage lines.
