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.
