...and up close (note: these are new growth leaves, not the flowers, which will come later.)
Another favorite of mine in this garden - the contorted filbert with its new spring leaves
Of course, some members of the family preferred indoor activities much of the time.
It was also a terrific seafood weekend - Oregon line-caught black rockfish that I cooked Friday night; then, Quinault, Washington razor clams and Columbia River salmon at Pirate's Cove restaurant on the way home today. All this great weather, food and relaxation helps make up for the return of the crappy weather forecast for the next several days. Already thinking ahead to our next trip to the beach.
