Rhododendrons in bloom at Sea Cliff Gardens B&B

Summer has been a bit slow arriving on the Olympic Peninsula, with a good bit of snow still present at Hurricane Ridge. Here near Sequim, though, the sun pokes out nearly every day. 

 The lupines and irises are bold and beautiful, the columbine are clematis are sunny, even when the weather isn’t.  Dozens of rhododendrons are making a showy display.  And our first fawn was born last week. 

The baby tried to stand on its wobbly little legs, but after a minute plopped down for a long nap.  Mom wandered off, following a trail of tasty dandelions, leaving the fawn for us to photograph.  After five days, mom and baby and doing well. Baby can run almost as fast as Mom now!   ~Bonnie
