WASHINGTON DC: CHERRY BLOSSOMS...THANKS, JAPAN!

So, if you've ever visited Washington, D.C. in the springtime, you've likely encountered the huge Cherry Blossom Festival that occurs every spring towards the end of March and the beginning of April. I've gone every year I've lived on the East Coast and it's always a huge mess of people but the beauty of all those blossoms is (usually) worth it. Thanks, Japan!!! And thanks Stephen Merritt for referencing the cherry blossoms in one of my favorite Magnetic Fields song, covered here by boatondryland.


I went again this year, but rather than post MORE PHOTOS OF CHERRY BLOSSOMS, I decided to take pics of Colby in front of D.C. Government Buildings...if you really wanna see cherry blossoms, just google image search it. I did post some jonquil pics...and c'mon..the office of thrift supervision...awesome.

  7. If you're interested in looking at cherry trees in bloom, Branch Brook Park in Newark, NJ (yes, THAT Newark) actually has more trees than DC, in a smaller area, with greater variety. They have a cherry blossom festival mid-April every year.
