Feeling Blue?

 For an immediate lift of spirits, visit Redmond, Washington's Anderson Park where the fir trees are sporting the most glamorous leggings you've ever seen. They were knitted by Suzanne Tidwell.

Or travel east toward Bothell from Seattle on Highway 522, and in the city of Kenmore you'll see trees that have been oh-so-carefully colored with blue paint (eco-safe) to bring to the casual passerby a breathtaking awareness of how precious the presence of flora is, and how devastating deforestation is for the globe. The artist is Kontantin Dimopoulos.

This picture of the blue trees is a month old, and now the leaves have emerged in lime-green contrast. Gorgeous!
