Lots of stuff in bloom around here right now. Here are some pictures of our cherry trees. We have eleven of them. I’m pretty sure that’s more cherries than we could possibly consume in a year given that we barely dug into the one cherry tree at our last house. At least the birds will be happy with their feast.
The irrigation water turned on last week (canal behind our house was running already a couple weeks ago). I’m not sure why anyone needs to water their lawn in April, but after the recent stretch of warm weather, lots people happily cranked on their sprinklers.
Parko and I went on a run through the Cowiche Canyon uplands yesterday morning. Lots of people and dogs out enjoying the weekend sun. Wildflowers aplenty. Prairie star and balsamroot pictured below. Violet above.
Lots of phlox. Some buckwheat getting close to blooming. A nice view overlooking the valley. Grass widow lingering.
