Lacamas Park in the Rain

Lacamas Park in the Rain

The weather can change quickly around here, especially in the spring. During my visit to Lacamas Park in Camas we got a light rain, then sunshine, then another light rain, and sun again. Rainbow weather, although I didn't see any. The weather here cons...

Tulips and Ferns

I'm not sure what that fern-like plant growing between these tulip rows is, but it made for an interesting photograph.  I didn't fully realize this until I got home and viewed the photos on my computer or I would have spent more time here, oh well...

Same field as yesterday, but from a different angle.

Skagit Valley Tulips

Yet another tulip field, this time from arguable the most famous tulip growing region in Washington, Skagit Valley.  This area about an hour north of Seattle still has a large number of tulip farms, so people drive up here and either drive or bike...

Tulips at Sunrise

Tree Farm, Early Spring (version 2)

The more abstract version. I was reading on the GreenWood Resources website this morning, and I was interested to learn that this particular tree farm in Boardman is part of a larger renewable tree farm industry. Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, they...

Tree Farm, Early Spring

Tree Farm, Early Spring

On our way home from the Palouse we happened to drive past this large field of Poplars planted in tight rows.  The young leaves were glowing in the afternoon sun, in just the shade of spring green that I'd been admiring all month.  I was pret...

Waves of Grain

Waves of Grain

Or maybe a better title would be Rows of Grain.  One of the interesting things about the Palouse was the row patterns cut into some of the hills by the farming vehicles.  It's the same sort of pattern you see mowed into baseball fields. I kno...
