Friday we went to Washington, DC to see the Japanese Cherry Blossoms. They were just at their peak and what a sight at sunrise seeing 1000's of trees appearing as pink clouds. This is the 100th anniversary of the gift of 3000 flowering cherry trees from the people of Japan. Unfortunately I am sure the bloosoms are history now after the heavy rains our area experienced yesterday. The Cherry Blossoms came out very early this year as did most all of our spring flowers and tress. Due to the freakish warm weather we have had with temps in the 80's most of our spring flowers are or will soon be history. My May flowering tulips are out and most of my daffodils are over. Everything is several weeks or more early. I have roses in bud that are usually not even in leaf this early.
Gorgeous pictures, Bill - all of them. Must have taken you some time and effort to get all those fantastic shots. I especially love the first one - all those rich colors from essentially pastel-colored blooms! I always amazes me to see the different sunlight will make.
I have only seen them once and I do not believe they were anywhere near this beautiful when we visited years ago. Wow...I need to send my mom a link to these pictures as she was the reason we got to go. She would love to see this...thank you for sharing! ...great memories.
Ooooo so beautiful scenery love it thanks Bill.
