I was hoping for an early spring but March seemed to break all records. It was cooler than normal, wetter than normal and grayer than normal. Here it is the first of April and it feels like the beginning of March instead of the beginning of April
I was looking at a couple of the past few year posts. Here in 2010 - it was Pretty in Pink early in March. The plums have just started to bloom this week - three weeks later than 2010. Here is a blustery day late in March in Ballard from 2011. We went to the Ballard Market and Locks today and it seemed even farther behind than last year. La Nina is taking her revenge again. I can only hope she tempers soon.
Here's a few shots of what is in bloom now at the gardens at the Ballard Locks.
Cheery Tete-a-Tete Daffodils
