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 35:  I missed last week due to a kitty emergency. We were focused on trying to make sure our Caly girl made it through a rough spot, and all thoughts of blogging and pictures went out of my head. I’m pleased to say she’s doing MUCH better and we’re back on track. You can see how, in just two weeks, the faint hint of green leaves budding have suddenly blossomed forth into eager young leaves, ready to grow. We had a hell of a thunderstorm this past week, too, with over 2500 lightning strikes around the area, and massive rain, and now we’re having a bit of a sun break which is nice. Cool temps–around 50s-60s and sun make for a lovely combination.
