Random Five Friday - Where I Live

NW Washington has fabulous scenery - I thought I'd share five things this Friday with you, about NW WA.
1. We have lakes, rivers and the ocean





 2. Rain

 Which makes everything grow - like ferns on tree branches

 Mushrooms 
 And blackberries everywhere - overtaking anything they come in contact with.
3. Sunsets
4.  And flowers, do we ever have flowers!!

 Fields of tulips
 Masses of dandelions
 And chairs to sit and view the fields of flowers
And flowering trees
5. And we've got Mt. Baker - from different angles

Washington State is a gorgeous state! I love the field of tulips and the views of the mountain. The ocean, lakes and birds are all wonderful too. Great collection of images. Have a happy weekend!

Scrolling through these fabulous sights, I'm trying really hard not to be envious. That is the opposite of one of the virtures touted in the devotional I read this morning.

It was fun to see the "other" side of our fair state. You know over on the SE side we have mountains too although not so big or grand. We have rivers, lakes, and waterfalls as well.
Let's just say WA is a gorgeous state all over. - I surely did enjoy your fabulous tour through that side though. Be sure to stop by because your chairs look mighty familiar.

JoAnn, all I can say is wow wow wow. What a beautiful group of photos!!

Your state has everything that America is all about. Mountains of majesty, fertile fields, sparkling water, a bounty of wildlife and waves of...well, tulips I guess!.....maybe not cactus plants or desserts, but certainly most everything else that makes this country so amazingly lovely!!

Beautiful photos...love the one of the tulips...I would have a bouquet on every table if I had my way! Love their little bobbly heads, never know which way they will go.
The dandelions are a reminder of what we will be fighting in another couple weeks...
Have a great week, JoAnn!

I just love all those scenes. (especially views of rivers and mountains and birds without thousands of meters of electric wires in the way).

Peg said...

Wow, you even make the rain look lovely! We too enjoy the scenery in the PNW, it's a great place to live!

I've never spent time in your beautiful state so it's been nice to learn more about it. And I love the view of Mt. Baker...magnificent! Sweet hugs my friend, Diane

No question, one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Springtime must be utterly amazing. About as opposite the desert SW as you can get!
