Ghost Among the Green at the WA Arboretum
A couple of weeks ago I looked at Dek and said enough. We were going to go outside. It wasn’t raining…at the moment. We would do a quick morning trip down to the Japanese Garden to see what was in bloom. Dek gave me no argument, so we headed out the door.
I drove along Lake Washington Boulevard in Seattle through the Washington Arboretum keeping my eye out for the garden entrance. I always seem to shoot past it. Just before the entrance I almost slammed on my brakes. There before us was a magnificent cherry tree in full bloom. It glowed like a white ghost among the greenery. Talk about a pop of color.
Dek and I proceeded to the Japanese Garden, but I couldn’t get that tree out of my mind. I caught a glimpse of it from a garden path and decided we should go and explore. We took a short walk down the road to the corner of East Interlaken Boulevard. There it was, my first fully bloomed cherry tree of the season. I could not have been happier.
