We have returned from a trip to California to see the 2017 Superbloom. We were a little early but did see some great flowers fields in Carrizo Plains. More on this later.
It continues to be cold, dark, gray and rainy. Everything is about two weeks behind normal. This is definitely a late spring. The flowering plums have started blooming and the neighborhood is starting to be covered by clouds of pink. The Yoshino cherries started bloom and the quad is in bloom. The daffodils have just started blooming along with the other usual suspects at this time – trilliums, pulminarias, ephorbias bloodroot. In a few days, the muscari will also be in bloom.
A walk along the Edmonds waterfront was full of color with daffodils and early tulips. We made it back in time to see the stunning pink Stella Magnolias in bloom at 3rd and Dayton.
