Outdoor Wednesday ~ Saturday in the Northwest

It’s time for some outdoor shots wherever you are. I happen to be in the Western Washington which is part of the Great Pacific Northwest area of the U.S.A. Thank you to Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for hosting this weekly event…


My girlfriends and I walked the Burke Gilman Trail on Saturday morning for about 4 miles and it was nice and sunny.


The blossoms are gorgeous and prolific. This tree was at Blyth Park in Bothell. So many blossoms that they look like snow when they fall.


The tulips are beginning to bloom, too.



My apple tree will soon be in full bloom. I’ll take more photos when more of the buds open up…

Hope your Easter week is filled with the wonder of Jesus and what He suffered and accomplished for all of us…

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

  1. Gorgeous!
    Could you still slip into your wedding gown and get pictures taken standing amidst the fallen petals? Wouldn’t that be a great shot?

  2. I just love that first photo. It’s so peaceful and calm looking. And tulips are one of my all time favorites. I just love them. Great photos 🙂

  3. Hello Ellen B.!

    That looks like the perfect place for a long walk (4 miles is long to me ;-). Is it cold there? We’re experiencing weather in the 60’s and I’m loving it!!!
    I hope you have a beautiful week filled with lots of wonder and blessings!

    love, cori g.

  4. Gorgeous photos! What a nice hike you ladies had.

    How old is your apple tree? We’ve been thinking of planting a few.

    I hope you’ll drop by AtticMag to see the butterflies I found. #8 on Outdoor Wednesday.


  5. Ellen, these beautiful blooms are great welcome of spring and hope. Have yourself a wonderful Easter week basked in the warmth of God’s love.

  6. Beautiful pictures of your walk. That apple tree looks like it is going to be a beauty! I too have taken some pictures of Washington, at the LaConner Tulip Festival! Hope you have a great Outdoor Wednesday and enjoy the Easter Weekend! Sherri

  7. Such lovely pictures! I just love the beautiful reflections in the water in the first picture. Looks like you had a wonderful day.

  8. The Lord provides such beauty for us to behold His Glory.
    Thank you for your photos for people from all over to see.
    Here is NC this year, it is just starting. The beauty of the
    Pacific Northwest is breathtaking…..Some day I hope to
    be out there for a visit to take in all the majesty He provides
    to the people there.
    Have a blessed Resurrection Day, Ellen!

    Fabulous shots! What a lovely day you must have had with your friends. Your apple tree looks like it is going to be gorgeous when all the buds open.

  10. What delightful Spring views from your walk … so lovely! I enjoyed your RUBY glass tulips and vases. Your Goldilocks post brought back memories of my folks seeking a new church home when we kids were teenagers.
    Hugs and blessings,
