Seattle Fog 45
It has been so mild here that blossom is pink in some front gardens.
Yesterday dog and I collided with walking seniors who were excited,
pointing - See, the first daffodil. (just one)
[Crocuses, may I ask?
when do they blossom in England?
The Streissguth Gardens, Capitol Hill, promise
‘hundreds of thousands of early crocus’
[One acre on a steep hillside.
Access on foot via Blaine Steps:
293 steps skirt the garden and continue down to Eastlake.
Watch for one of the famous Sears catalog ‘kit houses’
popular in Seattle in the early 1900s.]
