Spring in February

It's still February and it is clearly still spring, in spite of the cold temperatures on Saturday. I drove to Aurora Village today to check out the road construction on N 200th. Even on Saturday, traffic was flowing well, even if it was one-way from Aurora to the east.

Lee Lageschulte sent these photos from the sunny west side of Shoreline at the beginning of February. There is finally enough light that the same flowers are blooming in my shady, central Shoreline neighborhood.

Mine doesn't look quite this pretty yet, but it's trying!

Everywhere I drove in central Shoreline, everything was in bloom - ornamental cherries, plums, magnolias. There were daffodils everywhere. Fruit trees are covered with buds. Even the rhodies in my shady yard have a few full blooms on them and the lilac and red vine maple are covered with buds.

I so hope it doesn't freeze and snow before they finish blooming!
