Today's to-do list brought me to Dick's Drive-In on Capital Hill. I can't remember when I last had a Dick's hamburger and fries but they were just as good as ever. I wasn't going to succumb to the urge....but I just couldn't resist. The traffic was very heavy, both on my way there on 405 and up on Broadway so I decided to go home "the back way." I decided to drive thru the UW Arboretum and was glad I did. The flowers were plentiful and it was a great drive through the canopy of trees. I stopped at the Graham Visitor's Office and looked around.
They had Master Gardner's on hand to answer any questions one might have and had plants for sale outside the visitor center. I wondered around and snapped a few pictures. There were so many people out and about enjoying this beautiful day....either by walking or kayaking along the lake. http://depts.washington.edu/wpa/index.htmI continued on along Madison Ave. and stopped at one of my favorite places, the Red Apple Grocery Store. I picked up some plants at some good prices and am headed out to the garden to plant them now!
We are Sue and Melanie and the owners of Feathered Nest (914 S. 3rd Street) in Renton, Washington. Feathered Nest is an eclectic mix of vintage and new items. We became friends several years ago when Melanie was partners with another person at another shop here in town. I was working part time in yet another shop and Melanie and her partner asked if I would be willing to work for them while they were on vacation. I agreed and started working in their shop more regularly. As time went on I was asked to become a partner in their shop. We all worked for over 5 years and finally Melanie and I decided we would like to branch off and open our own business. With alot of planning and sleepness nights we finally opened in November of 2006. If you are in town, stop by and say hello or visit our website at http://www.featherednestinteriors.com We look forward to hearing from you!
