We're back to our pretty usual gray and wet winter here in the Pacific Northwest, although the sun did peek out for a few minutes yesterday. I guess I really can't complain given the terrible weather part of the south and east are getting. The gray weather can get a little depressing around here, but all in all we are luckier than a lot of other parts of the country, or world for that matter.
I was out in the yard with our dog for a bit yesterday and managed to find some color.
These mini daffodils have little buds showing. Usually I have no luck with daffodils, all foliage and no flowers. I was pretty happy to see that this spring I'll be seeing yellow.
Clematis armandii buds look as if they are starting to open. I was worried there wouldn't be many flowers since I really cut it back last year. I can never get it to grow along the fence like I want and see in other peoples yards. It always becomes a tangled mess.
Some of the fish were out swimming. These are a few Comets. We also have red and white Sarassas, spotted Shubunkins and even a couple of small koi. They stay pretty low this time of year, but once the sun is out they are pretty friendly. They will follow us along as we walk past the pond waiting for us to feed them.
