The sky over my house, taken on that marvelous sunny Sunday we had. Raining right now, again.

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.

Muscari

Muscari, or grape hyacinth, was one of the flowers I saw everywhere at the NW Flower & Garden show last week, along with fritillaria, or checkered tulips (see below). Their light blue color was very sweet to see, and will be perfect for an Easter nosegay. #NWFGS

Cactus flower cake

At the recent NW Flower & Garden Show in Seattle, one display area had some incredible “cakes” decorated with flowers. I loved the colors on this one.

Fritillaria

These darling checkered tulips (not really, but that’s what they’re sometimes called) were enjoying a beam of sunlight at the recent NW Flower & Garden Show in Seattle, WA. #NWFGS

Fritillaria, or checkered tulip, can be seen in antique still-life paintings, and is easily grown in Pacific NW

Snow on cedar tree

We have a huge cedar tree in out backyard. Here it is in the heavy, wet snow that fell, before it all started to melt. Bonus image below: our front yard. You can see that there is even snow accumulated on the power lines, but it was already starting to fall off.

Snow briefly covered everything, even the power lines
