Winter Light

The weather in March and April in Seattle has been known to drive people crazy (well at least one person), but it has been so calm around here lately I think the only people going crazy are the meteorologists.  Long-term forecasts are for yet another cooler-than-normal spring, but who pays attention to those?  As the days and nights become ever so gradually milder, more and more plants are starting to come to life.

Hepatica nobilis
Cyclamen coum
Edgeworthia chrysantha
Asparagus starting to shoot up.  It will be ready for harvest next month.
Peas planted two weeks ago on President's Day have emerged from the ground.
Broccoli planted last July is now reaching peak-harvest
