Where did February go?

We flew home from Southern California (Mom’s birthday celebration) early in the month, spent a week on the boat at the end of the month, and the middle just went missing. I do remember that the weather was warm and sunny for days on end - Seattle’s annual one-week-of-sunshine-in-February event. Aside from organizing some paperwork for taxes, doing a little yard work, and swimming twice a week, well I just don’t know where those days disappeared. I hope I had fun!

It won’t be Spring officially for ages, but tell that to the bulbs, shrubs and fruit trees. Everything is SO ready to burst into bloom, ahead of schedule, even before our last frost of the season. The blue sky and vibrant plant blossoms are certainly welcome February treasures, and an invitation to head outside with the camera.
