Spring in the Columbia Gorge

Oh, one last thing before I go.....I really wanted to share this photo.
My friend Mitch Hammontree took this from the viewpoint of Cape Horn in the Columbia Gorge, not too far from where I live. This is what early spring looks like around here....turbulent!

But it is also sweet.....

My first flowers!
Yay, Spring!!!!
......Bye again..................

Have a great trip to NM! No flowers here but we do have some snowy pussywillows. These past few days have had the craziest weather!

Such a beautiful shot of the clouds!

What plant is the little green leaf with purple flowers in the second picture?

Have a great time in New Mexico and you better leave that credit card at home. I can just imagine the beautiful beads that will be there.

So happy that Spring has sprung for you. I am already thinking home and gardening but May is more like it for us.

Have fun.

Hugs

Ohhhh, I miss that scene! I flew up last Fall to see my son/dil and my folks in Eugene... so I didn't get to take the usual drive up thru the Gorge! Yep, nothing quite like the Pacific Northwest. Our bulbs are just barley poking their heads out of the ground... about 2 inches or so! Sighhhhhh! LoL
Great pictures... thanks for sharing!

I love that landscape!! The way the cloud masses are reflected in the water, and the sun just peeking through!!
And your violets are looking so happy!!
