OLYMPIA -- It's tulip season in the Puget Sound. While that prompts many people to head north to the Mount Vernon - La Conner region, the Capitol grounds  do have some colorful flowers blooming in beds pointing to the dome.

For a few days, at least. The deer tend to munch on them in the evenings. They can be even more voracious than lobbyists.
