Spring Is Coming

spring evening-2

It has been quite the extended winter here in Bellingham, complete with some record cold, snowfall, lots of rain and generous amounts of gusty winds.  Nearby, Mt. Baker is nearly groaning under the snow loads and the ground has imbibed its share of water. The cold, of course, is necessary for many plants and animals in our area and will help reduce garden pest populations over the rest of the year. The groundwater will well serve what is likely to be a fantastic growing season. Spring flowers and bulbs are perhaps a bit behind but they already show signs of catching up quickly. Now, the wintry weather mix is nearly past.  Soon, the Tree Frog Night Inn grounds will return to their full spring and summer glory, giving respite in the warm, summer evenings sure to come.
