10 on 10 Photo Project:: August

A staff picnic at Lake Wilderness Park in Maple Valley meant that my day started out like this...



Fortunately, the first aid kit was unnecessary, but it was good to know the park's health and safety standards were up to scratch. Leslie Knope would be proud.


Not bad for a Wednesday morning, really.


Food was consumed.


Newborn babies were corralled around.


The view of Seattle coming from the south on 99 can sometimes be stunning. You'll have to just trust me on this. 


Blueberries!


The first of the dahlias has bloomed. In a few weeks we'll have these bad boys coming out of our ears, and I cannot wait.


The first tomato of 2011. Woo hoo. A real week of firsts in the garden.


I have been on an absolute tahini rampage recently. This is the dressing I've been using from Mayumi's Kitchen (Mayumi was Madonna's personal chef for years) and it's been treating me well so far. If you have any good tahini tips or recipes, do share!


Ten on ten is a monthly photo project started by Rebekah at a bit of sunshine. If you want to play next time, just take ten photos on the 10th of the month and post them on your blog. Check out other people's days here

Seattle is so cool! I can't believe you're only now getting your first tomatoes. We're almost done here with the summer veggies. Just too darned hot.

Fun set!

Beautiful! My dahlias crashed and burned. :(
THanks for sharing!

Gorgeous photos!! You are so right about 99---sometimes that view is insane.

Kim, somehow Seattle escaped the heat wave this year, though I would be interested in finding out what it is like to have a hot summer. :)
