Seward Park

Is there anything more splendid than flowering trees near water?

Seward Park is full of endless vistas.

Seward Park was a WPA project during the Great Depression.

Yesterday was Arbor Day. My company donated one million trees to be planted by the Arbor Foundation, of which 2200 are Douglas Firs that will be planted in the Seattle Area. The rest will go into national parks and forests, including those burned out last summer in the wildfires. Trees remind us that there is both a past and a future that does not include us, but from which we can learn.
