Double primroses

We had a brief sunbreak yesterday (oh, the thrill of sunshine in Seattle!) and I found that some things were happening in the garden.

Almost spring

Seattle’s weather has been colder and wetter than normal. Here is a plum tree in my back yard, trying so hard to bloom, taken on a rare break in the rain.
