Spring in the Northwest weaves a tapestry of greens and grays, using white as an accent. The connifers are the base tone, a rich dark green background for the hardwoods. Waves of new leaves of every color green imaginable twist in the wind. Many shrubs and trees exhibit their delicate white flowers. The normally shy dogwood proudly displays large plates of white along its limbs.

If you can drag your eyes up above the depths of green, the sky is an ever changing pattern of grays, whites and pale blue. This is still the rainy season, and clouds dominate the sky. Sometimes they are only a streak of wispy white or pillows of fluffy grey, but often in the over-exhuberance of the season, all types of clouds convene, making their own beautiful tapestry in the sky.
