A couple of years ago around this time, I started a project called my Year of Trees. I took a picture of the same street every week for a year, noting the changes to the trees that line that road and then put it into a video. I really enjoyed it and a number of my readers did too, so I decided to reprise it. But I wanted to focus on a different area. So I decided to go to Marymoor Park, a large park in the area with a number of vantage points. I found two that struck me–so each week (unless I’m sick or other major factors intervene) I will be posting pictures of those two places, taken from the same vantage point. I invite you to come along on my year-long journey with me.

Week 31:  We had quite a windstorm this past week. It was unusually strong for an April storm–a lot like our November winds, actually. Luckily, the trees aren’t leafing much yet, or it could have resulted in a lot more going down. As it is, the ground is oversaturated from water and so yes, trees did fall on houses and cars.

    Yasmine, I love your ideas about trees. There are so many kinds and that’s what is so wonderful about them. Your trees in Washington grow so freely there. When you live in the desert it’s just not the same. People here go with xeroscape yards with cacti and rocks very few people have grass anymore and its so sad. Trees make me very happy.
