Cherry Blossoms

Today is the start of the National Cherry Blossom Festival.  Lyn cannot travel any longer to attend.  So, I thought I would bring the festival to her in today's post.


In 1912, Japan gave Washington, DC a gift of 3,000 cherry trees after a 1910 batch died due to disease.  In 1915, the US reciprocated with a gift of flowering dogwood trees.


The city is stunning on a normal day.  On a day when the blossoms are in full bloom, it will enchant you.


  Even Lyn enjoyed being in the city to see the trees.
