• Oh, Those DC Cherry Blossoms


    CHERRY TREEThey say a picture’s worth a thousand words, but then there are those times when something is so beautiful that even a picture just can’t capture it. That’s the way it was for me on our last visit to Washington DC and my first time to see the cherry blossoms that overwhelmed me with their beauty, a beauty that I just could not quite capture with a camera.

    Actually, what you see here is a portion of a grove of Japanese Cherry Trees, planted in 1931, the year the Star Spangled Banner became the official national anthem of this country.

    Baltimore school children planted the grove at Fort McHenry as a gesture of patriotism. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if school children today were able to participate in community projects that live on long after they are grown?



    They actually are quite breathtaking, aren’t they?
