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 33: This week, we got to the park and the barren branches, which had been covered with tiny buds, had leafed out–the leaves are open and you can see that brilliant new green starting to cover the limbs. Spring is here. We are facing another week of rain, but the flowers and trees are finally waking up and it’s lovely to see.
