A rare sighting…Mount Rainier!! With Gulls! and the Bainbridge Island ferry. That’s West Seattle in the distance. I walked today without my camera and had just turned around to head home and saw the mountain was out. I zipped back, got my camera, and returned for a zillion photos, feeling very lucky to get this special shot.How glorious this good EARTH of ours. Have a wonderful Earth Day weekend. xo Pierr

Today’s post is inspired by a blog I follow: The Snow Melts Somewhere and her post today, “Collecting Yellow” She was inspired by two things, a WordPress photo challenge theme from two years ago (here’s mine > – ORANGE – which I remember having fun putting together, too), and another blogger, Marina, and her wonderful post on meexploring.blog.
Here’s what I dug up from my archives, starting with the flowering field and going clockwise: Mustard – growing in Ebey’s Preserve on Whidbey Island, WA; Yellow Truck – Bainbridge Island, WA, 4th of July’s antique car exhibit; HAND-Stand jewelry display I made and sold in my Esty shop, pierrmorgan.etsy.com; Prickly Pear blossom, Tucson, AZ at the Azure Gate B&B; Rubber Ducky, found in the Hanalei farmer’s market day parking lot on Kauai, HI; and “Star Fruit & Lemon”, a gouache (“goo-wash” -opaque watercolor) painting I did and sold on my website, pierrmorgan.com.
This was fun. Looking for yellow I discovered two things – I have very few photographs of yellow objects in nature and/or out and about, but I use yellow quite a bit in paintings from my imagination. Maybe the result of a Vitamin D craving (deficiency?) from living in the northwest.
Here’s wishing you a sunny mellow yellow week! xo Pierr

Join me! virtually, 10:30 am – 4:30 pm Pacific Time, for a day of writing. Pretend we’re here in the little house I used to live in on Whidbey Island, Washington state, overlooking Admiralty Inlet and the Olympic Mountains. You can write inside (same furniture) or outside on the deck, or sit on the grass and dangle your legs off the cliff side.We may have visitors…I’m fleshing out the world of a children’s fantasy novel.I like to use timed prompts:
Hope to see you here! xo Pierr (that rhymes)
