Breathtaking Colors of Northwest Spring

April 14, 2017

Endless days of rain in April and dark skies make me yearn for something else.  I never quite know what that something is until the soft colors of spring begin to gently unfold upon the scene. I have been watching the leaves unfurling new green growth, the grass has never been as vibrant.   The moss  is startlingly lush and rich. The magnolias remain as tight as a fist until they all open about the same time.  Has it always been like this or am I more aware? I know that the tulips in the Skagit Valley are about to burst upon the scene this week and claim the glory of Spring.  But it is this slow deliberate awakening of Spring’s softer colors in the Northwest that makes this part of Washington so desirable.    Gail Harker

    Thanks for the spring photos. Just had my first daffodil begin to bloom here so we’re a bit behind you. But looking forward to my daily walks up the hill. Love the lines in the unfurling fern fronds 🙂
