Yoshino Cherry Trees in Bloom

 

One of the floral highlights of the entire year in Seattle is the spring blooming of the Yoshino cherry trees in the Liberal Arts Quadrangle.  These trees have dazzling white flowers that dapple the scenery and the flowers' beauty is complemented by the dark bark of the trees.  Photographers have a grand time strolling around this lavish floral highlight.  After they bloom, the cherry trees are still splendid with their graceful shapes and dark bark.
