Port Angeles & Sequim Bed and Breakfast
Oceanfront Lodging on Washington's Olympic Peninsula

I couldn’t resist grabbing my camera and snapping shot after shot of these February daffodils.  What a treat to see splashes of yellow where it’s been green and brown all winter.  The sleepy gardens are springing to life, and it’s still February.  We can thank El Nino for our extra-mild winter and early spring here on the Olympic Peninsula.  Crocus and snowdrops, hellebores and dwarf iris, grape hyacinth and dozens of daffodils all have popped open this week.  A preview of spectacular things to come in our bed and breakfast gardens!  ~Bonnie

First Blooms

What a start to 2010!  Port Angeles, Sequim, and pretty much all of Western Washington set a record for the warmest January in history.  And our bed and breakfast was no exception.  This photo was taken today–February 2nd–the same day Puxatawnie Phil predicted six more weeks of winter.  Hmmm.  With temperatures hovering around 50 for the past few weeks, it has felt like more like spring than winter here on the Olympic Peninsula. 

I love these Dwarf Irises, which typically bloom in the early spring.  Today I spotted a dozen that had popped open overnight.   Fortunately, our deer don’t have a taste for “Iris Reticulata,” and they ignore these little purple beauties.   ~Bonnie
