It was my pleasure to share the photos. I have grown up in Northwestern Washington and I plan to live the rest of my days here too! The rain does get mighty tiresome, but I try to overlook it because we don't get the terrible snow storms, Tornadoes and hurricanes that other areas get. Plus, I'm not a big fan of high heat! Anything above the high 70's is too much heat for me! Besides that, I totally Love the Greenery we have!
