    I am intrigued, why light up a fruit tree?

    • WSB November 19, 2021 (9:46 am)

      Why not?

      But seriously, I don’t have much backstory on this, such as, how many trees (1? more?) are involved.

        It’s a row of about a dozen new fruit trees next to the Bee Garden.

      It will be a row of fruit trees as another posted and it will signify the trees growing each year with the community! We hope to have big beautiful trees in time that will help produce fruit for said community. They are quite small at the moment but first annual anything’s tend to be that way. Stop by the commons park near the bee garden for some socially distanced fun!

    Beautiful shot of the moon, but was the lunar eclipse visible at all in the Seattle area?

      It was totally clouded over when I looked at the radar last night, so I’m thinking not sadly.

    City Fruit planted a community orchard this spring in the High Point neighborhood. Trees were donated by local nurseries, including West Seattle Nursery, and volunteers planted them.

      Thanks for the explanation, was just concerned that the lights would kill the fruit.

      • S.A. November 20, 2021 (9:40 am)

        I’m curious – what trees are setting fruit right now?

  • Junction shopper November 19, 2021 (9:20 pm)

    The Christmas tree at Junction Park is also lighted.

    • WSB November 19, 2021 (9:21 pm)

      That’s unofficial – the official event isn’t until December 4th – maybe a test.

Sorry, comment time is over.
