Glorious Spring

Season changes can make the world of difference. Here in the great PNW, the first day of spring brought giant clouds in a bright blue sky.  I had to take full advantage and get out there- my creativity has finally escaped the winter blues.

April Showers

There are stark differences between last weekend and this weekend. Last weekend it was sunny, cloud free and 70 degrees. This weekend, it is dark, rainy and a cool 55 degrees. I’m glad I listened to my intuition and didn’t plant my little tomato seedlings outside just yet.  They are happily growing in their atrium perched on the kitchen window. Luckily, the outside plants have started to bloom- weeping cherry trees, magnolias, as well as my pansies and primroses.  Here is a tour of our backyard blooms.
