This year was kind of the winter that never was here in Sequim, Washington. It got off to a chilling start during the first two weeks of December with temperatures in the upper teens for days on end, but that was pretty much the last time we had a hard freeze.
It's hard to believe, but we've been mowing the grass here since the end of January and some of our plants never really went to bed like they normally would during the winter months. The cherry trees are blooming, soon to be followed by the apple, pear, and plum trees, and then the chestnuts and lilacs.
We are looking forward to a sunny weekend and hope to spend a lot of time gardening! As you can see from the photo above our daffodils are spreading their sunny cheer and in are in full bloom right now. Next our hyacinths and tulips, and any day our massive rhododendrons will pop.
Here at Rainbows End RV Park we look forward to welcoming new and returning guests, and hope to share some of what makes our park and the Olympic Peninsula so special with you here on our blog. This year we are already happily overwhelmed by the many reservations coming in for the upcoming summer season, and the many friends returning to stay with us once more.
If you have any questions about us, or the Sequim area we'll do our best to answer them on this blog.
