Astoria, Oregon ~ April 26, 2011
Three days ago I spotted these gorgeous red tulips. Color is popping up everywhere, at least in patches. The tall bushes are the stunning salmon-colored azaleas I photograph every year, and they'll be in bloom very soon. It poured rain with scattered buckets of hail yesterday. Today I see blue sky, but for how long? It may reach 54 degrees F today, with a "chance" of rain. Where I grew up, "chance of rain" usually meant "forget it." Here, "chance of rain" usually means "prepare to get soaked."
