Cherry Blossom Season

Short lived, the cherry blossom season in Seattle brings people out of their caves to celebrate their beauty and the beginnings of Spring. Here are a few snaps I took around the neighborhood. The thing about cherry blossoms are that majority of Seattle goes to the University of Washington Campus, where the Quad has these gorgeous cherry blossoms that just burst with the most gorgeous blossoms in a beautiful old setting. This year, they came out in full force, like they were screaming “LOOK AT HOW PRETTY I AM!” That said, they draw huge crowds, and it’s difficult to take photos without running into other people taking photos, or getting hit with a selfie stick. I mean, it’s a marvel, but I tend to get a little claustrophobic in those settings. But you know what? Cherry blossoms grow wherever here. So, all I have to do is walk down a few streets to appreciate them.

  1. Those trees are so beautiful! Nice to know there are cherry blossom trees in Seattle and not just the famous places like Japan and Washington DC 🙂

    • Yes! We’re very lucky to have them all over. Cherry trees in Kobe Terrace, also in Seattle, were gifted to the city from the people of its sister city, Kobe, Japan. We love our close connection 🙂
