Sequim’s Spring Blossoms

Though spring is only just beginning, it’s hard to contain our excitement for what is in store over the next few months in Sequim. Whether it’s watching life begin anew at Sequim’s local farms or hiking through fields of wildflowers, there is no place better to be this spring than in Sequim.  Spring blossoms are soon going to be everywhere, the songbirds will be singing high atop the trees, and the promise of another great year will be upon us.

Spring at Sequim Farms

Sequim is widely known as the Lavender capital of the U.S., thanks to its mild climate that resembles the weather is southern France.  It’s not yet time to visit the Lavender Farms of Sequim, but there are many storefronts in downtown Sequim where you can fill your world with Lavender goods while we wait for those gorgeous purple blooms later this spring and summer.  It will also soon be time to enjoy the bounty at the always popular Sequim Farmers Market, which opens in May.  In the meantime, seasonal farm-fresh produce is always available at Nash’s Farm Store.  This charming staple of the Sequim Community features a large selection of fresh organic fruits and vegetables, local meats, dairy, bulk items, beer & wine, and more.

Hiking Through Wildflowers

Hiking in the Olympic Mountains during the later spring months tends to be an incredibly rewarding experience.  There is nothing quite like stumbling out of the woods into an expansive meadow brightly colored with wildflowers.  Throughout the many trails high up in the peaks of the Olympic National Park, you’ll find meadows of stunning wildflowers in late may, June, and July.  Wonderful places to view these endless expanses of wildflowers are the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge, the Hurricane Hill trail at Hurricane Ridge, Mount Townsend, and the ever-popular and beautiful Marmot Pass.
