Honestly this stitch is far prettier than the scan shows it to be.  I am very pleased with my choice of threads - 'Easter Parade' is a perfect mix of spring colors.

There are lots of spring colors to enjoy this time of year.  Let's take a short walk. 

The Blue Oregon Iris are at their peak.

A Song Sparrow sings in a native Ceanothus.  

This is commonly called Buck Brush, Oregon Tea Tree or Redstem Ceanothus (Ceanothus sanguineus).

I'm not sure what this shrub is - nonetheless it is pretty.  

The bright green growth of good old Sword Ferns!

More Iris!

The Osier Dogwood will be in bloom soon.

A young Big Leaf Maple in bright green and red.

A fern unfolds.

And the Hawthorne blooms.

Ah, but the Iris, oh the Iris!
