Saving log - $0 tip box
Spending log - $12 brunch, coffee + $7 fresh vegetables and fruit
Found money - $0.01 (at my feet while I was at the ATM machine)

Love finding pennies by the ATM. It happens often enough that I don't miss checking for them.

It was hot in Seattle today, so I didn't run, but I walked the 3 miles from Sunset Hill to the Hiram M. Chittenden (aka Ballard) Locks. Instead of going into the Locks and watching the boats, I walked around the free English style gardens around the Locks. Never thought that anyone with the Army Corps of Engineers gardened, but I was very, very wrong.

The passionflowers are in full bloom.

Found an extrovert on the bus back home.

    They're such exotic looking flowers. I don't think we can grow them here.

    fern - a quick look in Wikipedia mentioned that the blue passionflower grew and flowered successfully in Malmo Sweden, while the Maypop can withstand up to -20C. Definitely a project plant in New England.

    Didn't realize that the flower lasts only a day. I timed it right!

    Cute doggie!
