Ancient Tree Discovered Today in the Heart of Seattle!

Seattle Old Growth

Today in the heart of Seattle a rare botanical find was discovered.  This extraordinary event had the blogosphere buzzing and created quite a horticultural hoopla.  Thought extinct, Needlus spaceosus variety ‘PNW’ was actually uncovered in the middle of this urban arena.  This rare sighting occurred during a brief 2 second clearing of the clouds of this perpetually misty city.  Residents gazed and children cried in delight as they witnessed this inconceivable wonder.  Heard to only appear once a year on this day, it was first sighted in 1962.  This tree is a perfect specimen with delicate foliage, perfect ovate leaves, and a beautiful russet red bark that has a sprayed-on texture.  This Pacific Northwest Native will probably spark an entire tourist industry.  Stay alert!  Who knows when another blue sky event may happen?
