Lots of you chimed in to guess where Melissa was when she snapped a photo of a serene-looking pond last week.

  • Those of you who guessed the Washington Park Arboretum were correct.
  • Specifically, Melissa was at one of the two ponds at the Woodland Garden, just off Azalea Way.

  • "Here you'll find one of the largest Japanese maple (Acer palmatum) collections in North America," according to the UW Botanic Gardens.

Congratulations to readers Dave A-R and Linnet D-S, two of the readers who guessed the exact location within the Arboretum. You're our winners this week!
