It was a beautiful sunny, hot day here in Seattle today, and my wife and I went for a walk in the Washington Park Arboretum (UW Botanic Gardens). Some of the flowers, including azaleas and rhododendrons, were blooming.

But I was actually more interested in the varying textures of the tree barks.

It was a great day for strolling.

Thanks for the kind words. I just use a little Canon PowerShot A530 point-and-click, but for me it's fine.
