Over the weekend, Nick and I went to the Washington Park Arboretum. The arboretum is a 230 acre public park in Seattle that has flowers, plants, and trees from all over the world. We’ve been there many times, but we usually walk around the northern part of the park, following the boardwalk trail that looks out on Union Bay.
Because of our warm winter, so much is in bloom already. There are cherry trees everywhere that are showing off their beautiful pink colors. The early blooming is a problem for the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, though, which is held annually for the entire month of April. The tulips and daffodils are blooming weeks ahead of normal, so they are encouraging people to come early.
Anyway, here are some of the photos I took at the arboretum:
