No Words

As part of Arts Walk weekend, the day after the Luminaria Procession was the The Procession of the Species.

The opening banner.

This procession has no words, no slogans, no advertising. It's just a celebration of nature, Olympia, friends, art, and a love of the silly. Pick your favorite species, season, or element and get in line.

Our friend Shari has been planting giant flowers in the Procession for years. This year she showed her newest native bleeding heart, complete with leaf costume!

More of her giant flowers proceed on - hiding here behind a frog.

Of course wherever there are flowers there are bees on bikes! They are one of my favorites in the Procession and every year the swarm seems to have grown. It was hard to get a good picture, they move so fast.


  1. What a great weekend

  2. Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to May Day Press!

    And I want the rat costumes!

    Looks like a great time was had by all. We had a great weekend in Seattle last weekend, but now I think I might be sick.
