One of the pleasures of having out-of-town guests is that you get to re-visit your favorite spots while you give them an insider’s view of your home town.  Volunteer Park in Seattle is one such place.  The rhododendrons were in bloom on this most recent visit, and the stately old trees stood in green grandeur.

    Yes, indeed – the cedar tree! What a magnificent creature. Clearly, my view of your state is… incomplete, shall we say? What a beautiful, beautiful place.
