I decided to celebrate spring today – because I can feel it in every fiber of my being. So I went scouting for some images that would make everyone that takes a moment to breathe deep and enjoy the beauty – feel like blossoming, smiling, singing and dancing.
Enjoy the photos, have a wonderful spring and keep in mind that with every end there’s a new beginning…
The daffodils in Skagit County are just getting started. I’m so glad spring is here!

Vanda coerulea – Rare and Endangered Plant
Vanda coerulea, also known as the blue orchid, is native to southeast Asia where it grows at elevations ranging from 2500 to 4000 feet in the Himalayan foothills. Botanist William Griffith’s description of this unusual blue-flowered species in 1847 sparked much excitement amongst orchid enthusiasts and hybridizers, who were eager to add this rare plant to their collections. The resulting unsustainable collection of plants for commercial markets led to rapid decimation of wild populations. In order to protect remaining wild populations, intact habitat is being protected and restrictions on international trade of Vanda coerulea have been enacted.

Kuekenhof tulip garden path of flowers. Photo taken in the Netherlands during the tulip season (April – May). It’s an ocean of tulips and the team of making a flower path was too good.
