Season of Blossoms

"Blessings drop their blossoms all around you." ~ Rumi

Spring is finally here ! Here in the northwest it has been a beautiful start with cherry blossoms everywhere. Few frames captured around the neighborhood -

Also check this earlier post on Cherry blossoms at the Washington University - Quad.

While March is seized by the cherry blossoms, April is for Tulips  :-)
If you are in this region, do plan your trip to the Skagit region. More info, pictures - here.

The Summit @ Snoqualmie, WA

I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” 
Lewis Carroll

As I bid farewell to the winter ... reminiscing the beauty of winter on the mountain tops 
...where we diligently spent most of our saturday mornings for the past three months :)

watching and enjoying my little girl patiently learn to ski :-)

Before we realized...there she was conquering the mountains :) 

"Once you take your first ride up a lift, your life will be changed for ever"
~Warren Miller

My little girl has inspired me so much that I am definitely going to take lessons next season ... and may be get on that chair along with my lens :)

Apart from skiing, we managed to do some snow-shoeing too. 
First a kid-friendly ranger led hike - more info here

Also did a ranger led photography hike ... but unfortunately it snowed heavily on the day. Few frames from this trip -
