Our Late Puget Sound Spring of 2009

Today was the first of the few days when petals rain from this Wallingford Landmark: the two rows of cherry trees that meet at the southeast corner of 46th Street and Corliss Avenue North.  At least when compared to 2007, this year the budding, blooming, and sprouting is about a dozen days later than it was then.   The top photo was recorded today – April 17, 2009  around 6pm.   The bottom one was also recorded on April 17, although two years ago.   In about five days the petals will have all fallen from these trees.  On this day in 2007 the trees were already well along in showing their leaves.
