Washington DC..Cherry Blossom Time

"How many, many things
They call to mind
These cherry-blossoms!"

"How many, many things the blossoms in this photo call to mind, too.

Like… just how many are there? Lots!

The Japanese sure do know how to make nice looking river scenery in spring."


Recently him and I took a trip to Washington D.C.  to see the Cherry Blossom Festival.  It had been on our bucket list for a very long time.  In New England spring never comes early and sometimes it doesn't come at all, we just get mud season, which is not exciting at all.  I wanted to feel the warmth of the sun.  I wanted to walk outside without being cold and I wanted to see trees and flowers blooming.  I think it was more important this year than any other.  We've been a bit down with all the trouble going on in the world and listening to news is not really an option anymore.  I am not naive about the happenings going on but a break from it all just seemed right, so this trip made perfect sense to us.  We live in a beautiful world.  Not a perfect one, but a beautiful one.  So for that week, we choose the beauty that was out there..beautiful blossoms that took your breath away.  Cotton candy colors and other trees blooming also.  Flowers and blue sky most everyday...and also beautiful people wherever we went.  I felt the sun on my face, I wore a sweater instead of a coat and the wildlife and greens of the forest were a delight...I know not everyone can get away so I thought, one more time, that I would take you back to Washington D.C., the beautiful part of the city...and let the rest's what I needed to do to restore myself.  Maybe after your visit here, you'll add it to your bucket list also. No hurry, the trees will be there for a very long time I hope, spreading their beauty every spring.


Now, just a few of the people and buildings of Washington right close to the reflection pool.

So this is just a snapshot really of all the beauty we found on this spring trip to our Nation's Capitol.  I hope you felt a bit of the beauty here and now will go find the beauty in your own backyard...C

Come back again next time when I'll take you to Virginia...which is an all together different kind of beauty...
