Spring Arrives

Spring has arrived early in the Pacific Northwest with unusually warm temperatures!  I took this photo of my Flowering Plum tree yesterday and created a haiku for you:


Delicate pink blooms

Dance in a brilliant blue sky

Spring arrives early.

Enjoy your day!  🙂

  4. I took this exact picture yesterday. AND Haiku is Ukiah spelled backwards, that’s where I’m from. 🙂 Nice Haiku.

  5. Beautiful, Ms Jill!– I can also personally attest as sick as all of those beautiful blooms made me last week while I was visiting the Olympian Peninsula! I wanted to let you know that I was relieved to hear that they caught the second guy that escaped in the Spokane area. I don’t know what part of the metro area in which you live but I thought about you and was relieved when they caught both of them. A bit too close for comfort in any event, I’m sure! 🙂

  8. Beautiful photo and verse, Jill! I really really hope you all get a warmer than normal summer once again and we get a cooler one. Then we will both be happy! 😀 It was snowing here yesterday so it looks like last year’s pattern is repeating lol

    • Hi Laura! Nice to hear from you. 😊 I do enjoy the sunshine but I hope we get some rain as it was way to dry last year. A happy medium is what would be nice. 🌞🌧☂🌈 Hope your snow doesn’t last!

  9. So envious. We’re suppose to get more snow but the temperatures are also suppose to go above freezing this week. Looking forward to that. Cherry blossoms probably won’t come out till May.
