For some of us it's here...but for others it's not. Of course the weather in the Pacific Northwest is always so unpredictable that we could still have a blizzard at any given moment. Today however, the sun is shining brightly and they say it's going to reach the middle 60's.
I mowed the front yard yesterday afternoon and will probably mow the back yard later today. I just went out there to check and it's still pretty damp from last night's dew.
I love the flowers in the Spring. My daffodils are blooming and the tulips are almst ready to open up. The huge Japanese Quince against the back fence is covered in red flowers and the Wysteria looks lovely with it's delicate yellow flowers. All of the Japanese Cherry trees are covered in pink blossoms and all the folks with hay fever are sneezing. My heart goes out to them and I'm thankful I don't have allergies.
Bob just got a couple more days of skiing in but he thinks that's the last of it until next winter. He said the snow was not that great.
I've planted some sweet peas and am really anxious for it to warm up so I can get my bedding plants for my hanging baskets, etc. However, we're talking about heading down to southern California the first part of April, so that will have to wait until I get back.
The bride and groom left from Seattle-Tacoma Int'l airport last night for their honeymoon destination~the Dominican Republic. They flew straight to JFK in New York and from there straight to the D.R. It was fun to watch their progress on the Delta Airlines web site. They return April 2nd and we'll be picking them up at Sea-Tac a little after midnight. I see that it's raining there right now but in the high 80's so I guess they can still enjoy the pools, snorkling, etc.
Well, I need to run to the Post Office before they close so I guess I'll get out of here and get going. Hope you're all enjoying the sunshine if it's shining on you today and for those of you in the snow~stay warm & drink cocoa! Until next time..........Linda
