My best bud Bette sent me this photo yesterday of her deck. Bette lives on Puget Sound, in the background, near Seattle, and this was her first snow of the year. The temps were going to dip into the 20s last night, so her growing season will be over. I love the deck's wooden railing, the bowed black "spindles" (is that the right word? My coffee hasn't really begun to kick in yet!) coordinating perfectly with the curved frames of the deck chairs. The evergreens in the background and the water in the distance really add to this seasonal scene.
For new readers, Bette is a HUGE animal-rights proponent and writes the blog, Walking the Dog. She is also the designer/owner/ entrepreneur of Tiny Growl, her company that developed the ScooPupPocket® for all of you that walk your dog and hate carrying the poop around in an old plastic bag. Bette also loves cars and does her own maintenance! I once saw her pull the inoperable engine out of her Series 2 GTI with her teeth and spit it out in perfect working condition. : )
