Spring Flowers In Seattle



Clematis Armandii: if you’re looking for an early-blooming climbing plant, this one has a powerful fragrance which I find distracts me from our usual grey spring weather.

It’s early February folks, and it’s Seattle. I know the rest of the country is dealing with “snowmageddon” but these Cherry Blossoms are equally a sign that the weather in many parts of the country is not normal at the moment. Much as I love these blooms, it’s at least a month too early for there to be such a proliferation of color on our streets. Fingers crossed that the frost stays at bay.

Happy Photo Friday!

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    wow, the weather has gone crazy everywhere in the world! Last week it snowed in Alghero, a coastal town in the usually warm island of Sardinia. People were so excited because last time they saw snow here was over thirty years ago…I say there is very little to be excited about when the weather shows signs of madness!

    We used to have a Clematis armandii in our garden and the fragrence was delightful – and it’s also very fast growing and evergreen so it covers a fence quickly. I died of old age after a few years, but I think I might replace it.
