Fundraiser for the Southwest Seattle Historical Society

On Wednesday, February 11, I will be giving a benefit for the Southwest Seattle Historical Society. I will share little-known early photos of West Seattle, as well as some of my most famous works.

This is an exclusive event at the historic Colman Estate, an Arthur Loveless-designed English revival estate in West Seattle. Each individual or couple will receive a
copy of Earth Is My Witness, which I will personally inscribe. Also included is a signed,
8-by-10-inch photo, suitable for framing, that depicts the Madrona trees of my beloved Lincoln Park.

For information on the event, please call Clay Eals, Executive Director, at 206-484-8008, or e-mail clay.eals@loghousemuseum.info.

Can’t make it to the event? Plan a visit to the Loghouse Museum on Alki, the “birthplace of Seattle”.

West Seattle Garden Tour 7/20

Some of you may have seen my July 8th post about the tiny hummingbird nest I discovered clinging to a branch on one of my Japanese maples. I was able to get a few more photos before the last of the fledgelings flew the nest. He was a fat little guy and very demanding on his parents!

If you create a natural habitat you soon get wild animals to share the space. I invite you to see my garden up close on July 20th during the West Seattle Garden Tour (WSGT). I will be on hand to greet visitors and sell and sign books as a benefit for WSGT

Hummingbird Nest in my Yard

Look what I discovered in one of my trees when I was pruning with my friend!

If you create a natural habitat you soon get wild animals to share the space with. I unfortunately left for a trip right after discovering these cute little guys and figured they would fly the nest before my return. I sent requests to several of my friends to go photograph them while I was away. My assistant Libby Pfeiffer made it up there over the weekend and got some nice shots. She reported the mother was vary concerned about her presence, and would only land on the opposite side from her camera. You can see how much they grew in a few short days! Also, I want to mention to those near Seattle, if you want to check out my garden, it will be part of the West Seattle Garden Tour on July 20th. I will be there to greet visitors and sign books.

Modernism in the Pacific Northwest
