This is our first Pacific Northwest winter, and it’s definitely been colder than it was in the bay area of California. No snow (unless you count the snow mixed with rain we had right after Thanksgiving). Last year before we moved, the area experienced “snow-pocalypse” in early February, which was about 6″-8″ of snow, and more than the area was equipped to handle.
This past week has been sunny and warm in the afternoons (very foggy mornings), and things are starting to bloom. I spotted the crocuses pictured above on a lunch time walk. Winter is not as gray and wet as everyone warned us…This friendly weather is definitely inspiring us with our seed orders for this year, and I’m starting to feel Spring fever!
