Springtime in Seattle, part 2

The Pacific Northwest is just so gosh-darned beautiful in spring!

Dogwood blooms in a profusion of colors! Here is a rosy pink blossom I love.

Don’t even know the name of this flowering shrub.  But, it’s pretty!

And, one of my favorite evergreen plants: acanthus.  I’d only ever heard of this plant in art history classes: Corinthian column capitals are derived from this plant.  I’d seen them in Southern California, but love them in Seattle.  As here, next to magenta azalea.  Wow!

That’s my quota of beauty for one day!  I’ll be back soon with more spring blossoms from Seattle.

I hope your spring is beautiful, wherever you are!
