Spring has Sprung
Although the weather is still a bit here and there, Spring has definitely sprung here in Seattle. Everything is in bloom and it's just beautiful. Sarah and I took a walk around the neighborhood and the zoo this past week and there are just so many unusual plants here in the NW. Because it's so temperate, everything grows here. And blooms...flowers bloom here like I've never seen. Giant tulips that look like they might be related to the Audrey II plant in "Little Shop of Horrors." I saw an azalea the other day. Now, we have azaleas in the south but not like this. This thing was covered in blooms and they were the brightest colors I've ever seen. Puts those Florida azaleas to shame. (but who can blame them...it's dang hot down there) So, if you want to see a wonderful sight, come to Seattle in the Springtime. It's pretty spectacular.
