Yesterday it was pouring rain - coming down by the bucketful, but we had errands to run - so off we went. The farther south we went (heading towards the meat market in Stanwood) the less rain there was - and finally a little filter sunshine. And we found some hints of spring.
Crocus filling a lawn, some Rosemary blooming, a little white flowering tree, and one whole bush of rhododendron in full bloom. It sat in a little alcove in a yard, surrounded by protective evergreen shrubs - its own little greenhouse. I'm not sure what the flowering shrub in the bottom right is, any suggestions?
We stopped at a cafe in Stanwood for lunch - this is the little white flowering tree, reflected in the top of our car. Spring is on the way!!!!!
