Field of red tulips

I’ve been sick with that awful bug that’s going around, so here’s a shot from last year’s Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, north of Seattle, WA. This year the warm weather is bringing earlier blooming up there in Skagit County.

Pink trees

The Seattle Design Center in Georgetown has some of the most magnificent pink trees I’ve ever seen. They are planting new ones, but they look so puny compared to the old giants. The first view is from inside the skybridge, which you can see in the second photo.

Plum blossoms in black and white

I don’t usually have difficulty choosing one image to post, but sometimes I just can’t decide. The one with the sun showing, or not?
