Pink Cherries In Washington D.C.

Pink Cherries In Washington D.C.
These big old trees were a gift many years ago from Japan to the United States.
Take a look.

The cherries ring the tidal basin.
This fence marring the view of the trees is up to protect
the newest monument being built:
The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial.
Friday, April 8 there were lots of tourists visiting D.C.
and checking out the petals on the trees.
Even with the rain there were tourists in cars and on this green trolley.

You have to admit we live in a beautiful area, especially in the spring, despite the allergies they can bring.
