Saturday/ summer is here

Well, summer has arrived here in Seattle.
Saturday saw temperatures of 89 °F (32 °C) in the city – and Sunday even warmer at 96°F (36°C). On Tuesday, a giant ficus tree (transported all the way from California) was hoisted into one of the Amazon biospheres.  I see the tree is also called the rusty fig or Port Jackson fig, and it is really native to eastern Australia.

Stills from a video clip on, showing the hoisting of the Ficus tree into one of the Amazon biospheres.
