365 Nature – Day 75
In 2016 I’m doing a 365 Nature project. Each day of the year I will post something here about nature. It may be any format, a photo, video, audio, sketch or entry from my nature journal. It could be a written piece. Each day I will connect to nature in some way and share it here by the end of that day. You can keep up-to-date by subscribing to the RSS feed or be notified by email. See all the 365 Nature posts.
There was still storm debris on the ground at Pritchard Beach park today when we went on our morning walk. Lake Washington seemed much the same although the water level has been steadily rising over the last week. The beach is decreasing in size. I was surprised there wasn’t much debris washed up along what beach is left. The path through the wetlands however was full of small branches on the ground. A few larger branches had also fallen but they had either been moved aside or had landed conveniently out of the way. The cherry trees were blooming, but a number of small branches had blown off in the wind. We picked a few up and took them home to put in a vase. The clouds which were so ominous when we walked to the wetlands broke and on our way home the sun shined down on us.
