Swarms of people check out the cherry blossoms at The University of Washington's quad.

Dozens of flowering cherry trees are in full bloom on the University of Washington campus this week. If you can’t make it to the UW, the state capital and many parks in the Puget Sound area feature flowering cherry trees and other blossoms. A standout is Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle where the flowering cherry trees line the historic Azalea Way path. Have you snapped a photo of beautiful spring blooms?
