Cheered by Vibrant Colors

I’m looking outside my window this morning.  The sky is milky and somber and there’s rain in the forecast. Maybe till next April.

So for Cees’ Fun Foto Challenge, I went through my archives looking for color.  And found sunshine.  In a sunflower standing tall and proud in Sequim.

Guess what else I found in Sequim? Fields of lavender, vibrant in color and heavenly in fragrance.

I think I’ll have a seat. Stay awhile. And breathe it in.

Ahhhhhh!  I’m feeling better. So I’ll conclude my search with a trip to the tulip fields in Skagit County.

Cheered by Vibrant Colors, I’m ready to start my day.

    • Thanks Pete. We had an unusually dry November but the rain has returned here too and I’m already tired of it! And winter is only just beginning!

  1. I notice you didn’t share Sequim’s annual rainfall! People sometimes don’t realize why everything is so green in the Pacific Northwest. Great pictures.

      • Well I have been misinformed forever. My mom used to say it got the most rain. Thanks for the reality.

      • I’ve always thought Sequim would be a nice place to retire since it’s in the ‘banana belt’ on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula. 🙂 Forks on the other hand, just a couple hours away, gets close to 120″ of rainfall a year. Now that’s some serious rain! Maybe that’s the place your mom was thinking of.

  2. It’s been very gray here. Those vibrant colors are stunning and definitely uplifting!!
