1 My Suffragette garden is full of white daffodils and tulips. The purple tulips are almost ready to bloom. I so hope they will flower before the white tulips have faded.
2 The new Clematis, ‘Early Sensation’, has a few flowers which are very pretty.
3 The baby ducklings in today’s post by Marilyn remind me of a beautiful little book my parents bought when they were in Boston many years ago (and Boston is in all our minds this week with such sadness.) “Make Way for Ducklings” by Robert McCloskey is about a policeman who stops the traffic so that the mother duck can take her ducklings across the road to the pond in the park, a beautiful story about a beautiful city to whose citizens we send condolences.

Love the ducklings, seeing cars stop and wait for them to cross the road is how you know it is spring in Seattle.

Love the ducklings…at a supermarket in a suburb of the city, there was a zebra crossing outside. As I drove up to it on my way back home, there was a supermarket check-out lady each side of the road, holding back the traffic while a duck with her ducklings waddled across the zebra crossing – wish I had my camera on me the way you always do!!!

Maybe a week or two depending on the temperature, today it is over 20 C or 72 F.

It shouldn’t be long then – it’s only about 15C here and we have our Spring flowers. The wind is still cold though…. 🙂
