U of Washington Cherry Bloom–Showtime!

Its time! Take the annual pilgrimage to U of Washington Quad to see the 80 year old Yoshino Cherries/ Prunus Yeodensis in bloom. They are in max bloom now…’snow’ should be starting!  The campus Landscape Architect & horticulturists keep this loved tree tradition going by growing replacement trees in a Skagit nursery, so as the old ones die, new larger trees can be put in and keep some continuity.

Its always busy and fun to see the happenings at the Quad. Last year I was treated to a mini concert by music students playing a duet on the lawn.  Spring!
