I’m taking a short blog break this weekend, but you know I wouldn’t leave you without a little beauty. For instance, here is a lovely view of the Cascades, still winter-clad.
Spring is arriving, which means early flowers brightening up the place. Here we have some delightful Magnolia liliiflora getting ready to burst out in its full glory.
They’re especially gorgeous near-sunset, on a stormy day, during a sunbreak:
Here’s a nice close-up of one of the buds. They’re huge!
And opening buds, and blue skies, and enchantment.
Here is a really lovely picture of a branch full o’ flowers shaking hands with the sky.
You’re the ones who identified these, long ago, when all I could call them was las princesas. You never let me down!
Our little Luna’s almost a cat now. Mind you, she’s mostly fluff, but it looks like she’ll be bigger than her big brother by the end of her growing up.
She loves play-times with her brother and her daddies.
They’ve been mostly hanging round the house while it pours rain, but they’ve had a few sunshiny days where the can lounge on the deck. Soon, we’ll all be outside exploring the yard together. It’ll be Luna’s first full spring.
But winter isn’t done with us yet. Jack Frost had his way with my car the other night.
Have a lovely weekend, my darlings! Next week, we’ll continue on with our Christianist textbooks, and see what the creationists have been up to lately. I know, so much to look forward to. Best go do something super-fun so you can endure the anticipation!
