. . .that, and going outside no matter what the light and sky. Yesterday lizziviggi commented on the sunny day photo ". . . I really like this photo-- the line of grey bridge, the line of grey kayak, the line of grey sidewalk. But best of all, it's not on a grey day!" We grab it when it happens! But in the gray months we look for color. This colorful flower stand (The Flower Lady) is tucked onto the sidewalk in the Eastlake neighborhood on my normal route from Capitol Hill to points north and west of Lake Union. Every time I pass I take in an eyeful of floral and rainbow umbrella color. Now the daffodils, hyacinths and primroses are blooming in my garden, so I'm getting a little dose of color right at home, too. Rains returned last night after a weekend of pure blue skies.
