Spring at the Quad

Spring at UW Quad

I had heard on another forum that I participate on that the cherries were in bloom on the University of Washington campus. I was pretty amazed since they did not bloom until almost mid-April last year. It was a late spring last year and this year is an early spring - but six weeks!

I took a trip this weekend to the campus and they were in bloom. It was a wonderful sunny day and everyone was enjoying Spring. Everywhere I turned, I heard the snap of a camera or saw another person taking a photography. I went with the flow.

The trees were beautiful. The day was mild. It was an enjoyable time. I especially liked the beautiful Magnolias. Today... there are a few flurries of snow and the temperatures have dropped back down to the low 40's.

Gorgeous shots, Marta.

Love your pictures. We are moving into fall here in Adelaide. We had a wet and windy weekend, though it looks like it will be sunny today. Mornings are cool and I am back to wearing long sleeves for my morning runs.

Gorgeous photos = I guess that's a prime example of a tree being laden with blooms. Then snow -- a reality check. Hope it doesn't prematurely kill the blossoms and their outstanding colors. Great post. Of course, I'm partial to college campuses! m

Eden:

Beautiful! I want spring to start so this cold and strange weather will go away.

Beautiful photos. Glad your lettuce survived!

Love these photos. The close up looks almost like it is a clay flower. Cool!
