City park really a daydream

a daydream During this recent wave of warm to hot weather, I took advantage of the new tree-lined park in the middle of downtown Woodinville, the one that is at least 10-15 acres of trees and benches and has a little wading pool for the kiddies.

Vine maples weed-whipped to death

weed-whipped vine maples I am sad in my heart again. By spring, two lovely vine maples by tributary 87, as it flows along the south bypass, will be dead. Weed-whipped to death.

Pipeline claims unsubstantiated

unsubstantiated claims I was able to have access to Olympic's brochure, distributed at a Chamber of Commerce meeting: Thirty-two pages on both sides, many of them glossies, color pictures, charts, maps--to me, it was a lot of unsubstantiated claims.
