    Here is a website for a live webcam of the Quad at University of Washington, Seattle.
    Watch the 'Somei-yoshino' in real time.
    Edited by wcutler - look farther down in this thread for the current year's link.

    Isn't that a funny idea? It's like watching eagles sitting on their eggs, but a lot less activity.
    I guess it was easier to mount and post the video camera than to take a photo once a day.

    The 'Somei-yoshino' at the Quad at UW certainly do please the crowd. Great joy!

    Here is this year's live webcam at the University of Washington Quad overlooking the 'Somei-yoshino'. Watch them bloom.

    Well this is not a timely posting, but better later than never.
    Wendy Cutler and I travelled to Seattle to view the renowned 90-year old 'Somei-yoshino' at the University of Washington Quad on March 29, 2018. Biggest surprise of the day was the 'Choshu-zakura' at the Suzzallo Library.
