Glimpses: “Spring is in bloom.”

As we recently learned, one of a Seattle spring’s most lovely sights may lose its timeliness over the next century as ugly ol’ climate change continues to rear its head. However, while the cherry blossoms are appearing ever earlier on the other coast, they seem mostly on schedule this year for their annual delighting of visitors to the University of Washington quad (“the first week of spring quarter,” we remember noting during our time as an undergrad). Thanks to hardlylove for snapping this shot just as the white-pink blooms began their cotton candy mimicking. Want to see for yourself? The UW Visitors Center helps you track it over here. But don’t wait too long – by mid-April they’ll be gone, leaving only shirtless frat boys playing frisbee for your viewing pleasure.
