Fall was always my favorite season but after making it through a dark, snowy and wet Pacific Northwest winter, I’m enjoying the benefits of spring. Being in San Diego, I got used to flowers all year long but in the Pacific Northwest, outdoor flowers were non-existent. So here are some photos I took, with my Samsung phone, of various flowering trees, bushes and planted flowers. I only know the names of some of them, so if anyone knows their names, please share!
These plants are Arrowleaf Balsamroot, scattered over the hillsides on Tubbs Hill in Coeur d’Alene, ID.
This is soft new growth on a Western Larch tree, at the east entrance to Tubbs Hill. I often touch or feel trees, flowers and plants as I walk, and speak to them. I trust they have spirits 🙂
These are blooms on a beautiful flowering tree.
I was told that these are called Pom rhododendrons. They are on a large bush.
These photos were taken over several walks. The beauty that is all around us is stunning…..in yards, in the sky, growing through cracks in a sidewalk…..! It is all there for us if we take the time to see it and take it in!
Thanks for taking the time to join me on my journey!
