In Bloom

As many of us savor the beauty of a three-day weekend for Memorial Day, I'd love to share a bit of the beautiful Spring we had here in the Seattle area. We're about ready to transition to summer--though the rain and gray skies might signal otherwise--so this is the perfect opportunity to look back on my neighborhood's climb out of winter.

In a relatively short period of time, trees near my apartment shift from barren to blooming, bursting forth with buds and petals in vibrant colors. And sometimes, it's the color white that stands out the most, especially against the stark contrast of a brilliantly blue sky. Marsh Park, conveniently located nearby for Drifter's outings and kayak launches, features many of these flowering cherry trees. I chose to capture them there rather than fight the crowds at the University of Washington's campus.
