Summer’s still not here and is actually supposed to arrive late here in the Pacific Northwest this year, but the sun cooperated again this morning and shone brightly for most of our trip to Theler Wetlands in Belfair.
The Trilliums and Skunk Cabbage were joined by a number of brilliant purple native plants indicating that summer is inching closer.
The Great Blue Herons have returned throughout the wetlands.
Common Mergansers seem to have paired up before leaving the area,
though this handsome male Hooded Merganser didn’t seem to have a mate yet.
It’s hard to beat a Spring day hinting at better things to come after a long, wet winter.
