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.
Such beautiful photos.
Thank you! I’m glad you enjoyed them.😊
Vibrant colors and lovely flowers, thanks for sharing!
You’re welcome! I’m glad you enjoyed the color!!
Absolutely beautiful. Wish I could live there.
Thank you for your comment. We are blessed to have such beauty in the Pacific Northwest! 🙂
Vibrant colors indeed!
Yes! I needed them today! 🌞
Beautiful photos and such beautiful colours, especially the Fields of lavender, thanks for sharing. Aiva
So glad you enjoyed them! Lavender is my favorite too since it comes with fabulous fragrance! 😊
I want those colours to come back! So grey here, and still raining! 😦
Best wishes, Pete.
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!
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.
Thanks so much for your comment. 🙂 We’re the evergreen state and definitely pay for it with the rain. Sequim is an anomaly though, because it’s in the Olympic Rain Shadow (‘banana belt’) and only has an average rainfall of 16″ a year! Check out this map and chart. http://www.olympicrainshadow.com/olympicrainshadowmap.html
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.
Probably so. She just got them confused.
Such beautiful vibrant colors 😀
Thank you so much. 🙂
It’s been very gray here. Those vibrant colors are stunning and definitely uplifting!!
Thank you! I’m so glad you enjoyed them. 🌞
