Spring in the Pacific Northwest

May 1, 2018

Jeff and I went up to Seattle this weekend and spent most of the weekend exploring the urban landscapes of the city, as the rhododendrons, cherry trees, azaleas, dogwoods, lilacs and myriad other plants awakened from their winter slumber.  Seattle has a bit easier a time with their urban landscapes than San Francisco, but also face many of the same challenges (most especially dogs).

 

We visited the Japanese Garden inside the Seattle Arboretum, in addition to walking Azalea Way from end to end.  The Japanese Maple collection was particularly stunning.  In the link to the album below, check out the red Japanese Maple - unbelievable. 

 

We also visited the Chihuly Gardens and Glass museum.  The garden was breathtaking - incorporating his glass sculpture with the dazzling spring blooming shrubs and bulbs was nothing short of visionary.  Check it out below.
