A Walk Up My Street

This comes with huge apologies for all those of you struggling with yet more snow in the UK and on the East Coast.


This is what has been happening in that crazy parallel universe we call Seattle, where we’ve been having an unseasonably mild and rainfree winter. This is all happening within a block of my house – you can smell the heady perfume in the streets. Have you ever seen so much insane loveliness in February?  More on Flickr.

    How pretty! As I’m sure you know, this winter has seen persistent snow in the UK – just this evening as I walked home it was snowing, yet again. But I’m sure some day we’ll have Spring weather and blossoms to enjoy… fingers crossed!

    Funnily enough the weather in Seattle and London is often eerily similar (check out the weather pixies on my sidebar) but this winter they seem to be so different. The blossoms are incredibly early for Seattle…I’ve never seen anything like it since I’ve been here

    You just made my heart drop! I cannot WAIT for spring to come to Chicago. I *yearn* for it in my dreams! These photos are not helping 🙂 Beautiful!

    Don’t apologise – if we can have just a fraction of that in the next few months it will be worth that wait.
    Thanks so much for sharing those – now can you send ‘spring’ vibes our way in the UK please! x
