A Walk in the Park

While I was away on the weekend, I took the opportunity to check out the park to see how spring was progressing. Here are a couple of slideshows to share some of the sights. There was a lovely variety of spring flowers and blossoms. The wallflowers were not quite opened, so I must go back in a couple of weeks to breathe in that fragrance! By the way, the rooster and hen were taken through the fence to the Children's Farm section.

This next group of photos shows some close-ups ~ notice the brilliance of the centre of the tulip. Also there is the teeniest bird nearly blended in with the bark of a tree ~ I think the bird might be a nuthatch. The view of the Olympic Mountains was taken from the lookout section of the park overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca.


  1. These are wonderfully hypnotic! I see the second one includes some budding peonies which were one of my mums favourites. xx

  2. Wow, there is already so much blooming and waking and blue skies! I love all the new growth you've captured :-)

  3. Flighty ~ Thanks for watching and commenting. The slideshows seem to add a shimmery quality, which looks effective on water features. Peonies are lovely...

    Nikki ~ Thanks :) There seems to be always something blooming there, I will remember to photograph the rose garden there later on in the year. At the moment, I'm waiting for the wallflowers to bloom...I have been known to get down on my knees and bury my face in them!
