Washington spring

Taken this morning before my return to So. Cal., here's the view out my mother's kitchen window looking toward the neighbors' barn. It had been unseasonably rainy the past few weeks, but this week it's predicted to be sunnier again. The farmers will be happy to have their fields dry out so they can continue their spring planting.

In the foreground, blueberry bushes. Further down the lawn, a gravenstein apple tree. Behind that, a row of marionberry bushes, and a pear tree to the left.

Beyond the fence is the very muddy pasture where a nearby farmer's cows that are about to calve have been housed while they wait to deliver.
