Signs of Spring in Seattle

Happy March from Pierogi and Springroll! We wanted to start this month by sharing some of the perfect spring flowers that are starting to bloom around the city. Following the record snow storm just two weeks ago, some of the earliest flowers and buds are showing up in parks and gardens all over Seattle. These past few days, we have been enjoying drier, warmer weather and keeping an eye out for the first signs of spring. So far, we have seen crocuses, apple blossoms, irises, primroses, rhododendrons, and plenty of new leaves. We were able to see many of these early bloomers at the Washington Park Arboretum - an amazing botanical garden maintained by the Seattle Parks and University of Washington. We enjoy going to the arboretum year-round to enjoy the hiking trails, bike trails, and changing foliage. Learn more about biking in the park in our 5 best bike routes in Seattle post. If you're in need of a pick-me-up to pair with your urban nature hike, be sure to stop at Fuel Coffee while you're in the area. Check out the photo gallery below for fresh blooms in the Central District and Washington Park Arboretum.
