This seemed the best day of the week to plan an outing to see and sketch the Cherry Tree blossoms on the 80y/o trees in the University of Washington (UW) Quad. The weather was predicted to be warm-ish (high 50’s or even 60 degrees) and sunny. I made plans with Feather, another sketcher, to travel by light rail to the new UW station just south of the Quad. This was two weeks later than last year.
There were so many people!
I plopped myself down on the grass near a group of young women having a traditional Japanese celebration – Hanami. I enjoyed their traditional music while I sketched.
As I wandered looking for either another sketching venue or Feather, I ran into Tina! So we had an impromptu sketchbook “throw-down” and took a group photo (rather, Tina took a group selfie).
