Slow Start to Spring

Winter has been hanging on to dear life here in the Pacific Northwest, even though the calendar says it’s Spring! The late snows and cold temperatures of March have stiffled the blossoming of many flowers that normally would have made their showing by now. Unlike the eastern coast of the US where the cherry blossoms have been ahead of schedule, ours are still bare. Seems that the most prolific blooms here right now are the daffodils. Here are a few photos I took this weekend at the local garden park.

    Truly lovely photos. I love the blue anemones. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you Kevin! I love the blue Anemones as well, although I’m still trying to decide whether they are truly a blue or a purple color. I also found out that the nickname for these flowers are “Windflowers.”

Thank you!
