    Cherry Blossoms

    Cherry trees on UW campus

    In April, visit University of Washington. That is when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. Go to The Quad. You can't miss it. There cherry trees were originally planted on the approach to the floating bridge on Lake Washington and were transplanted in the Quad. There are nearing the end of their life span, which means this is about as big as they get. The University alumni has a plan in place to replace them with baby cherry trees currently growing in a nursery in Oregon.

    Cherry blossoms on UW campus

    by actualtourist Written Apr 22, 2005
    Cherry blossoms lining the Quad

    Early spring, the Quad on UW campus transforms into a spring wonderland with cherry blossoms in full bloom and petals falling like snow. These cherry trees are old and deteriorating (and some have died already), but thanks to the class of 59, new trees are growing at a nursery site at the Center for Urban Horticulture and will eventually replace the dying trees so that this stunning springtime show can continue!
