I love Washington State on a sunny day. Rainy days too, I suppose. But it’s just easier on a sunny day. The blue skies make the greens a bit greener. Sun isn’t to be taken for granted here. When it’s out, I join others in leaning into it more, like human sunflowers. Buds on trees are blossomed, awakened. Just as I am. Today, in these gardens that my partner Teresa tends so well.
