I’ve been enjoying the spring wildflower show on my daily commute. Right now, the red flowered currants (pictured) are blooming in my yard and on the sides of some cliffs I pass on the way to work. I’ve also been driving by patches of skunk cabbage as I take a detour to avoid delays from a major construction project. The yellow flowers really add a splash of brightness on a cloudy day.
Oregon grapes are up in my area and they also add a nice touch of yellow. I’m looking forward to see the changing spring palette as the wild and cultivated flowers bloom.

May the glory of the LORD endure forever;
may the LORD rejoice in his works—
he who looks at the earth, and it trembles,
who touches the mountains, and they smoke.
Psalm 104:31
