For about a mile between the Crown Hill and Ballard neighborhoods is a stretch on Eighth Avenue Northwest where the arterial is divided by a long row of trees. It’s one of my favorite streets to sketch in the fall (I sketched it in November last year). Since so many trees in my own ‘hood are already turning, I wondered if Eighth had turned yet. Bound for an appointment in Ballard this afternoon, I allowed a little extra time so that I could stop on the way for a sketch.
I was too early; most of the trees are still dark green. I did get an unexpected spot of color, though – an abandoned couch on the boulevard.
