    Up here in Leavenworth, spring has really sprung! Forsythia is blooming as well as daffodils and some tulips!  Yah!!  (that also means I need to mow again today.)

    Wildflowers are outstanding right now at Ski Hill and Sauer's Mountain. No access to Icicle Gorge trail yet. Lower section of Fourth of July would be good also. Lori said that trailhead is open.

    I am having to keep the reusable grocery store bags in my car so I don't forget to take them!

      It took me months to train myself to do that.  Now I also reuse the thin produce bags until I can get something better.

    Working hard to NOT purchase single use plastic!  I need to fill MANY containers of water at home before departing for anywhere. The warmer it gets outside the more containers I will need.

    Yellow bells are done. Glacier Lilies are about done except in the shade. Spring Beauty is all over the place. Oregon Anemone, Water Leaf, short Blue Bells are all blooming right now. Balsam Root Arrow Leaf about to start blooming. Round Leaf Trillium is prolific now also.
    There is also a little Prairie Star here and there. Lots of other flowers budding, but I can't identify yet.
