“Spring is finally here!”

To that declaration I often add “Can winter be far behind?” In the Pacific Northwest we have to make the most of every good-weather day, as things can change quickly and unpredictably for the worse.

Yesterday I had to travel across Lake Washington into Seattle. So I took the opportunity to visit the Washington Park Arboretum.

Joggers, wedding parties, bicyclists, and a host of others were enjoying the flowering plants and birds that abounded. Here’s a sampling of the sights.
