Spring around the neighborhood

 A tour around the neighborhood on a typical slightly drizzly, light-gray spring Seattle day....check out this two-tone cherry tree...
 and my very favorite yard. got there a little late but it's still a profusion of color and texture...
 it will still look like an Easter basket long after april.

 another great rock wall.
 and this conjurs the Mediterranean. oh how i wish!
 love this rock wall right across the street from us.
 at the base of our landlords' chestnut tree.
 and these in our own back yard. Forget-me-nots. more subtle, more delicate, but dearly loved.
 a second favorite - a crabapple (i think) from the park overhanging our mossy garden shed.
and you've gotta have Daffies!
Many of you are probably on your way to summer by now, but here in Seattle, spring lasts until july.
Visually, that's a nice thing!

  1. Ahhh, makes me miss New England. Just wonderful. One thing with Florida it heats out all those wonderful spring flowers. Great pics. Enjoy your flowers.
