Cherry Blossoms

Laura and I had such a great day out and about catching some of the spectacular sights in the Seattle area. Our stop at the University of Washington was a highlight of the day. In later posts I’ll share some other views on the campus and many of the gargoyles the old brick buildings have.

This is a magnolia that I always like to get a photo of when we visit the quad this time of year.

The crowds we experienced on Monday were nothing comparted to the crowds that gathered on the weekend. A sea of humanity!

I’m slowly adjusting back to being at home and I’m slowly getting around to blogs and catching up with emails. Hope April has started off well for all of you.

  1. The pictures of the cherry blossoms are incredible. The university is such a beautiful setting. It will be May before we see them in central Canada. Thank you for sharing with us.

  2. I took a few minutes to catch up on your blog . . . but I am going to do my chatting here at this post. 🙂

    Oh, what glorious scenes you have shared, those photos of the cherry blossoms! Washington, D. C. is known for its cherry blossoms and I have been there during cherry blossom season . . . but I think these outshine them!

    I am glad you were able to enjoy some good times with your “Coast” family! Birthday celebrations, family time, church, lots of meaningful moments. (Too bad that your hubby got stuck with side effects from his vaccine! Hope he is completely well by now.) The double stroller was a great find! That looks like a sturdy piece of equipment!

    Loved seeing your family photos down through the years!

  3. So so beautiful! Wonderful place to walk at this perfect time of the year … and fun to now be a tourist from across the “great divide” … and best of all with a special walking partner.

  5. How incredibly lovely to enjoy being with your daughter at such a vibrant springtime flowering! The pictures you shared are gorgeous, with the backdrops of all the old buildings too! It will be another month or so before we have those kinds of blooms here, so it was wonderful to see them already in full bloom in Seattle!
