It seems like the flowering cherry tree blossoms are long overdue for being dispersed to the four corners of the neighborhood by April showers associated with blustery frontal activity. We've always been able to count on their arrival. So far so good though, and from the looks of our 10-day forecast, not only will the blooms be shedding on their own, but Bellingham will be basking in mostly clear conditions and 70+ degrees by midweek.
We are cautiously optimistic - it is May in the NW after all, but it looks like it's time for Victoria to get her tomatoes planted. But let's not get overconfident and jinx it.
