A SUNNY THURSDAY

Hello on another sunny (at least here in western Washington) Thursday.  They are saying we will get some rain this weekend....of course it will happen this time , because the Puyallup Fair starts Friday.  Anyway, I took my camera to work today and after I got off.......I stopped to take some pictures of the beautiful plaza that seperates the hospital and the children's health center where all the out patient clinics are located.  It really is a paradise and for those employees and visitors (and some patients) it's a beautiful, soothing, relaxing place to just sit and reflect.  The only time I get thru there is when I have to go to the main hospital building on some errand.  Our office is 3 blocks form the hospital and I don't get over there very often.  The grounds keepers do a beautiful job with the flowers and shrubs. There are several hunderd varieties of roses and other plants.  And even in the winter...it's beautiful and peaceful. I also took a video of the fountain that's seen in the pictures and if I can figure out how to get it from vertical to horizontal I will post that too.

I'm off now until Tuesday...I thought that was nice until I looked closer at the schedule and saw that I'm scheduled to work Saturday, Sept 16th.   WHAT ??? WORK A SATURDAY ??? I haven't had to do that in over a year.  My normal schedule is Monday thru Thursday, 7am-3:30pm. 

I hope you enjoy the pictures....until next time,   Linda

P.S. How about that full moon ?  Isn't it magnificant ?

I LOVE the gardens, the topiary bushes were beautiful, I want that elephant! Looking at #18, the pansies looked like little lion faces! Thanks for showing us, they're all wonderful pics, it looks such a well cared for garden. Hope the rain holds off for the fair. Jeannette xx
