Here are some reasons I know it's officially spring:
- Cherry blossoms blowing all over the place, it kind of looks like it's snowing
|Our back yard. The cherry tree is bursting with blossoms!|
- Flowers everywhere
- Cyclists riding in shorts (I was still wearing knickers although I didn't really need to be. And a fleece lined jersey, toe covers, and thick gloves. Oops.)
|Smiling! Despite being over dressed.|
- Roadside stands
|Something tells me an "artisanal bread" stand|
would not be a good idea in the winter here.
- Green grass, before it turns brown for the summer
- Sailboats out on the ocean
|The Cascade Mountains on the mainland|
make a gorgeous backdrop.
Won't be long until summer's here!
