Ready for Spring in Longbranch

The early evening sun Monday Feb. 16 lathered Mount Rainier with a soft sheen.

Hummingbirds swarmed our feeder this morning, three on at times, rocking with the northerly breeze.

The sun broke through the morning clouds for a brief second, painting Drayton’s Passage with streaks of gold. More sunshine is the forecast for today. I hope the weather geeks know what they’re talking about. It is currently 45 degrees, cloudy and breezy.

It has been a wonderfully warm winter. Another benefit of life on the Pacific Northwest. The daffodils by the Longbranch Improvement Club house are in full bloom. Cherry blossom trees are flowering, and I’m never sure about whether I ought to grab a coat or not.

But I’m not complaining.

“It’s spring,” my lovely bride said.

I’m inclined to agree.

Good morning Longbranch.
