Yesterday Matt and I took a long walk in the sunshine, and I took a few photographs along the way to document the extraordinary weather we’ve been having.
The incredibly blue sky, with the snow-capped Olympic Mountains in the distance:
Believe it or not, the cherry trees are in full bloom:
More spring flowers in February:
Then we went to the Woodland Park Zoo to say our final goodbyes to the nocturnal animals, but of course we had to spend some time with our favorite big cats, who seemed to be enjoying the sunshine as much as we were.
An ocelot high in a tree:
Three very sleepy snow leopards, the mom and her two 8-month old cubs:
We also visited the budgies and small parrots at Willawong Station and fed them seed sticks:
An orchid from the Tropical Rain Forest exhibit:
The weather is supposed to stay sunny, warm, and dry through Monday, so I’m sure we’re not the only Seattleites with spring fever.
