Daffodils and Spring Blooms

Welcome, spring…finally! It’s been a long, cold winter…lots of rain! Our Cascade and Olympic Mountains have received record snow amounts…great news for spring skiers and good news for our summer water supplies as well! The traditional spring blooms seems to be a little slow this season due to all the cold temps we had the past 2 months, but with temps expected to dramatically warm up in the coming week, I expect to see a sudden burst of blooms throughout all the public gardens. Right now, the majority of blooms are the anemones, daffodils, magnolias and rhododendrons. Tulips are just starting to bloom. Enjoy some of my spring photos posted below.
