Every spring, something amazing happens on the UW campus: cherry blossoms. These thirty Yoshino cherry trees have graced the Quad since the sixties after being transplanted from the Arboretum. (I myself have graced the Quad since only 2003.) I don’t believe such a display can be seen anywhere else in Seattle, and each year crowds gather with cameras. I decided to take some pictures too, as the cherries seem particularly spectacular right now.

  1. Love those pics, Nathan. This is proof that Seattle isn’t all rainy and gray… Hopefully we’ll get to witness these blooms for ourselves next spring. Sigh.

  2. Oops, I divulged that best-kept secret about Seattle: the weather in spring/summer/autumn is awesome. Please don’t tell anyone!
