While other parts of the country are being hammered by winter storms, here in the Pacific Northwest we are enjoying a few more days of Juneuary. While not appreciated when experienced as a cold and rainy June, Juneuary is quite wonderful when it brings clear skies and balmy temperatures in the middle of winter.
What better time to get out and walk?
At Coulon Park all was blue
and a turtle came out to bask in the sun.
At Lincoln Park the skies were bluer still, making a nice backdrop to the madrone tree,
and bringing the promise of an early spring.
Promise maybe, but we’ve been fooled before. It was only last year when we woke to this on February 22nd – and doesn’t March come in like a lion?
Still, it’s all good in the Great Northwest. How’s winter treating you where you are?
