Perhaps the most beautiful sign of Spring is the blooming of cherry trees, their branches loaded with soft blossoms forming cotton candy pink canopies and a cascade of petals, falling gently on winding pathways and softening each step like a light dusting of white snow. Against the terra cotta facades of the gothic buildings around University of Washington’s Liberal Arts Quadrangle, 31 Yoshino cherry trees are in full bloom, drawing scores of admirers to stand beneath their branches, gazing up at their magnificent beauty.
