In a few weeks we will mark our first year here in the Pacific Northwest, as we enjoy our first day Spring in this gorgeous region. So many trees, anxious for so long to show off their new foliage, are now regaling us with soft hues of pink and pastels.

Many cherry trees are moving from blooms to new leaves and Oh! what scenery we see around here. Magnolias, star magnolias, tulips, white and yellow dandelions, sedum, peonies, ranunculus... So many. It’s breathtaking.

Countless times I have pressed my shutter to capture new sprigs, blossoms, tiny little flowers coming to life and moving softly as the breeze comes and goes. And in the midst of all this beauty, I try to examine the natural light which is so powerful here.We moved most recently from the Southeast; while there we were also lucky to enjoy gorgeous Spring seasons that captivated us, which I have shared with you before. New flowers and leaves continue to inspire me not only to grow them, but to style with them, bake with edible ones, and of course, to photograph them all. Steller’s Editors picked my spring story and featured it on their Creative Collection. If you follow stories on Steller (as I do), will be wonderful to see you and stay in touch there.

My sunroom windows are wide open to let the breeze come in as Spring has arrived. I am working on a Homemade Watermelon Radish Tart, fresh and simple. Perfect to welcome this new season; I will be sharing the recipe with you in my upcoming posts. I will be back soon!
