In Sammamish, just East of Seattle, there are a cluster of tall tree stumps that were left on the corner of a busy intersection. A few years back they suddenly started wearing colorful “Tree Socks,” or as some call them “Tree Sweaters.”
I came home from school and thought to myself… what…? Seattle has found a new way to express its unique “Style.”
The first time I saw something covered in sweater was in Belltown around 10 years ago. Back then it was street signs and lamp posts with short sweaters decorated with beads. Then in Boston I saw a similar trend years later. Nowhere have I seen the Dr. Suess-like trees that was have here in the Greater Seattle Area.
And as a huge proponent of brightening our dreary winters with more color, I have to give my 100% support to this local creative artist.
