Some people call them Arbutus. Here in Seattle we call them Madronas. Whatever you call them they are extraordinary trees.
They are the only broad leafed evergreen trees native to this area.
I took these pictures in a park in Magnolia to help with a new painting. (By the way. The story goes that the Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle was named after these wonderful trees but the namer got the name wrong. There is another neighborhood called Madrona, where, as far as I know, there aren't many of these trees.)
