Spring images

I'm taking a break from my vacation pictures and sharing some recently pictures I've taken around Seattle.  It hasn't exactly been spring weather here, but the flowers are out and blooming!

Remember the flowers I planted on my balcony - they've grown more!




Fresh daffodils in the house


After Church Nick and I went over to our alma mater - University of Washington - and took some pictures of the beautiful cherry blossoms that have been blooming.  And as you can see in the first picture, we weren't the only ones with the same idea!

Too bad they moved the Japanese Cherry Blossom Festival to Seattle Center this year. I went yesterday and there was not a cherry blossom tree in sight. :-/

Beautiful photos! I was thinking about the UW campus just the other day, imagining all the cherry blossoms in bloom right now. I bet it was fun to go back there!

We just got a new camera, and funny enough, over the weekend we went and took pictures of the cherry blossoms and daffodils. We were at Greenlake, though! Seriously, where is spring?!
