Walks, Hikes and Wanders #9: A Stroll Down Azalea Way

Last Monday, Mr. D and I decided to go to the Washington Park Arboretum, which is located in Seattle's Madison Park neighborhood. May is one of the best times of year to visit, all because of one long path: Azalea Way. Take a look:

While the azaleas are truly spectacular, that is not all there is to see at the arboretum. There are many hybrid rhododendrons, most of which were in full, glorious bloom.

The arboretum isn't just about flowers, however. We saw wonderful  foliage plants, like this red bud hazel:

We also looked up, up and up at this spectacular Chinese Ash. While the azaleas, rhododendrons and foliage plants were all wonderful, this was the best sight of the day.


  1. These are all so beautiful! I can't stop being amazed by such beauty!

  2. Julie-hey-Thanks for knowing what I am planting! Your pictures are fabulous. I love looking at them. Hope to see you sometime this summer maybe.....
