Early Spring, "wet coast" style....

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Sea to Sky Premier Properties (Salt Spring)


Spring


Those who live on the Pacific Northwest Coast love to see the end of January...the calendar says that Winter lasts till March equinox, but coastal people here know that February delivers Spring to our softer "wet coast" region.

Already, snowdrops are out, early rhododendrons are in bloom, daffodil & tulip bulbs are poking up, early flowering ornamental cherry trees are frothing into being, & forsythia is spreading its sunshine hue in protected corners....

Some daring gardeners, with the help of plastic wrap covers, are starting early Spring veggies...salad anyone?

Sometimes, February can be warmer & sunnier than June (a traditionally rainy month here)...let's hope this La Nina turbulent weather year delivers this soft climate gift!

Days are getting steadily longer, temperatures are warming, the earth is shrugging off its winter rigidity, Spring is whispering its way forward....

Ahh...February...welcome!

Your description of the coastal area is lovely!  We may have to see for ourselves, but right now, the desert is waking up and we cannot miss that! Thanks.

We are having a mild winter here in Ct as well, some bulbs are popping through already because of the 50 degree days.

Hi, Ed and Tracy...I always think we need two lives...in the desert for our rainy/grey winters, and here for that magical April to October time.
