momlady and I are planning an excursion to Seattle next Saturday. She is trying to decide on trees to plant in her new yard. I have a book called "Trees of Seattle", the author actually tells you where to see each kind of tree! So we are going to make a map and drive around, at some point probably going to the Locks, and likely ending up at the Arboretum (after all, gotta see what is for sale in their greenhouses...). I will volunteer to drive, and there is room for two more in my car if anyone is crazy enough to want to go along!

Oh, I want to go. Such fun. But the cost to get just to your house would be a little prohibitive. Drat Rolling on the floor laughing

Hah!
Well we will think of you. I just snapped these photos through the window of my Tree Peony 'Hesperus', just coming into bloom. It is raining, and we had almost an inch overnight, so it is soaked. I love Hesperus, blooms look like tissue paper.

Sounds like fun, Pistil. Have a great time.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Pistil, how did your tree tour go? Photos?
