Aesculus hippocastanum

Horse Chestnut
HIPPOCASTANACEAE, The Horse Chestnut family

Volunteer Park has a winding road lined with Horse chestnut trees. The nuts were falling all over the ground (they are not edible). Michael and I had a nice time there today, walking among the beeches, cedars and glowing katsuras. The dahlia garden is fun to look at. The Asian art museum there is a neat building (and there is a good Katagami exhibit there now). We also went to Cal Anderson Park in Capitol Hill neighborhood to meet Yuko. There is an interesting fountain over a covered resevior. Luckily, Seattle in autumn is beautiful in the rain.

About Mulysa

I love my work as a landscape designer and artist. When I'm not planning homesteads or working in the studio, you'll find me hiking, photographing, gardening, baking, cooking vegetarian meals with friends, reading and working on sustainability issues...with my baby on my hip in Portland, Oregon.
