I never realized that cherry blossoms were that prevalent in DC. Do folks there enjoy the blossoms to the same extent as the Japanese? Did you take a photo of the Jefferson Memorial on your walk because your description sounds gorgeous..... it would be great to see a pic of what you have described!
Yes, they're in great abundance here. The cherry blossom trees were a gift to DC from Japan after WWII. And as they fade, the dogwoods come out and the azaleas.[color=#993399]I have pix, but I need to figure out how to load them
