Beauty in the Storm

Our springlike weather has temporarily taken a hiatus here in the PNW.
Meterologists are now busy reporting snow in the mountains, hail in places, lots of rain and WIND. It's almost as if we were back in winter again! Well, not really because the temperatures - mostly - are about average for this time of the year and we native (and almost native) Northwesterners are not used to sunny springs anyway:)
Ferns love moisture and we NW'ers love ferns.
This one is putting out new growth--the new leaves are the ones in the middle, all curled up.
This weekend brought us the first blooms of the crabapple for this year.
I LOVE, love, love this color and the tree is filled with more buds,
still to open, in His time.
Also, blooming is the flowering cherry tree near the lower pond.
And last, but certainly not least, is Lake Blessings.
Maybe not so pretty, but certainly very surprising to have a 'lake' so very close to our deck;
it did make getting around today a bit challenging though and I was glad when the water receded a bit!
Well hope you enjoyed the quick garden journey
hope you can find beauty in the midst of your storms too.
