More sun, please

Published April 4, 2007 / by Steve Berentson

Sun levels have been disappointing in recent days, but the evidence is clear … there has been enough light and warmth to start things popping in the wonderful world of Fidalgo Island flora. Backyard splashes of color to date include cherry blossoms, camelia bush and a couple of rhodies. Of course, daffodils and tulips are springing up wherever planted. Almost time for some Skagit Valley excursions…

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
