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
