pretty in pink

March 30, 2018 @ 8:14 am | Filed under: Assorted and Sundry, Nature Study, Photos

Flew home from Virginia on Tuesday and have spent the week catching up on Everything. Catching up—and taking as many nature walks as humanly possible. Rilla and I have been casually tracking the waves of blossom here in Portland—first came the crocuses and hellebores; then the flowering plum and pear trees, with quince close behind; and now everywhere is a sea of daffodils and grape hyacinths, and the bees are tumbling in the cherry blossoms, and the first tulips are filling their cups with sky. When I left for my trip last week, Klickitat Street was a froth of pink and white, giving way now to a veil of soft green.

Why am I inside right now? Goodbye, I have to go for a walk. 🙂

  1. Oh how beautiful, thank you for sharing these lovely photos 🙂 Happy Spring to you! Here, we are yet hovering at freezing.

  2. Oh my how perfectly beautiful. As soon as the snow melts I’ll join you in tracking the flower waves!

    Happy Spring! 🙂

  3. Klickitat St–THE Klickitat St, Ramona’s street?! If so, please post pics sometime.

  4. How beautiful! The design of the first flower seems really quite holy in its perfection. Happy spring to you! And happy Easter 🙂

  5. I’m still feeling a wee bit jealous of your spring. It’s been so cold here. We’ve got a handful or crocuses which keep getting buried in the snow. And one lone daffodil so far. The tulips aren’t even thinking about buds yet.

Go ahead, make my day
