To March and Spring!
Winter really has been long this year and colder than I've experienced so far in the Pacific Northwest. I've only been here for 6 winters though..so I suppose I have a lot to learn!! I've lost track of how many times it's snowed here this year. But I do know it snowed this past week!!!! Sorry for the quality but it was early (before work) and not much light.
The poor little crocus didn't know what to think!
But things started to thaw pretty fast
And now I can say bye bye to February!! More like Good Riddance :-)
Even with the snow the signs of Spring are all around. I took these this morning. I was thrilled to find the tiny irises blooming
And my hellebore is really trying to open
Lots and lots of primroses
And the lilac buds are getting fatter
In a few weeks I can look forward to visiting fields of these
I can maybe even enjoy a little outdoor dining!
And Jigs will be ready for his annual Spring photo shoot. Here he was in his first.
