Spring has really taken over - in just a few days it seems that new flowers are blooming and everywhere you look there are new flowers to see.
Tulips, tulips, tulips - it is tulip festival time. Thousands will come to view the massive fields of commercially grown tulips.
Fields and fields of dandelions
Cheerful, sunny flowers fill fields
Wild Phlox is blooming alongside the roads - wafting sweetness as you pass by.
Thimbleberries grow wild
Golden Chain trees - a very popular landscaping shrub - and they escape and grow wild too
Elderberries burst into bloom this week - time for Elderberry flower fritters
And the lilacs - oh the lilacs!
The best of the best
Fields fill wild mustard every spring
Spring is glorious in NW Washington state. Can you smell it? Add to that the fresh mown lawns and you have heaven. Happy Spring!!
