Seattle Spring 2021

(As a follow up to last weeks post Tombstone, Arizona in Sepia, I asked for feedback on which sepia print was favored to help me narrow down to one or two. Ironically 1, 3 &4 got identical likes. Thanks!)

My wife and I just got back from a couple of weeks in Seattle. Two of our daughters and their husbands live there and this trip was great as we were able to spend time with all of them. One of the things I enjoy doing when we are up there is walking their dogs as needed. On one of my walks I was blown away by all of the spring blooms. On this particular walk the area is well established and the trees and bushes are very mature and large. I wanted to share some of the blooms I came across.

Seattle Spring 2021 - 1

And to complete the captures, I had to share the following due to the shear size and look of this tree trunk…incredible.

    Because of all the rain, the Pacific Northwest always has such lovely flowers. Your pictures are great. That is one awesome tree! I wonder how old it is.

    Though I love this time of year up here with all the flowers, Kirt, my favorite of these photos is that tree! The cinnamon/brown and lush green go together beautifully, and the texture/weave of the trunk is fascinating. It looks like you hit Seattle during some beautiful days too. 🙂

      We had some rain which for us was a present coming from Southern California:) But overall, beautiful weather!! The spring blooms took my wife and I back to our childhood. We grew up in Iowa and some of the spring blooms were plants we had there. We love the Pacific Northwest, especially with two of our three daughters there. The tree was incredible and I couldn’t help taking that shot with the shape and coloring of the trunk and the ivy growing up around the base!! Thanks for stopping by….have a great weekend!!

    Beautiful pictures! Seattle area is so pretty this time of year with all the green and the new blooms. Lately I have taken a real liking to the poppy flower, which I believe is in your first picture you shared.

      It’s in the neighborhood of one of our daughters. They live in Seattle proper and this is a long established neighborhood…thus the maturity of the plants. This was all taken while I was walking their dog…which was a challenge unto itself getting him to stop so I could capture these:). The size of the tree trunk wasn’t something totally unusual for the Pacific Northwest, but I found it interesting. Thanks for stopping by and for the feedback!! Have a great week!!

      Thanks Teagan. Large trees are common in the forest up there, but the shaping of the trunk is what caught my eye! Walking their dog twice a day was a pleasure with this kind of scenery. Have a great week!!

    Such lovely pictures of God’s Beauty! Lots of the same flower blooms we are seeing here in Pennsylvania. I bet it was a real treat for you and your wife to see all these glorious flowers!
    Have a fabulous week my friend!

      You’ll understand this…we saw peonies blooming for the first time since we moved from Iowa right after college. Heaven knows that was many many years ago. Thanks for stopping by Nancy!! Enjoy the lake!!

      Thank you so much. The tree trunk was unexpected, but having said that these large fir trees fill the forests in this part of the world. Have a blessed week and thanks for stopping by!!

    Absolutely gorgeous! I envy people that have such beautiful gardens on their property. I can hardly do that living where I do. Down in the valley people have a better chance and I was admiring some of their gardens just the other day.

      I couldn’t wrap my head around how big all of the plants were, but again the neighborhood is well establish and obviously plants can grow like crazy in that climate. There’s always a trade off and you live in one of the most beautiful places on the planet!! Thanks for stopping by and here’s to a great 4th and week ahead for you!!
