|My garden will never win an award, but I love the blooms!|
While we're further north than Boston, it's so much warmer here. Spring arrived back in late January with the first of the crocus, and hasn't gone away since.
Right now, the daffodils are beginning to segue into tulips and my forsythia is finally starting to fade after several weeks of cheery yellow blooms. The cherry and apple trees lining the streets are beginning to blossom, and grape hycanth are popping up everywhere.
Yes, it rains in Seattle. That's why it stays so green here. It's what gives us our lovely, extended spring.

It's often cloudy - but a bright white sky with high clouds can be quite beautiful, and a lot less glare than when the sun peeks out during the winter. Anyone living in northern climes knows what I mean.

It might rain a lot in Seattle (I can hear the light patter of raindrops falling on my roof as I type this post), but I sure do love the spring show that comes along with the rain!
