Beautiful Michael. But cruel when presented to a sad sack who needed over 2 hours to drive to work yesterday in a driving snowstorm. My neck still hurts from the cringing.

Thanks Michael for posting the pic. It is just what the rest of us needed to get our minds off of this last little bit of winter.

I can't speak for the others but I'm ready for spring. In particular I can't waite until the District's Yoshino cherry trees burst into action. Thank heavens they are only a couple of weeks away. The buds are this beautiful shade of blush and open soft white. After the Yoshinos the pinker Kwanzan cherries put on a show. During this time the whole city and surrounding area takes on a rosy glow. That combined with the unique layout of the District and each March/April it is like Springtime in Paris, only in the United States.

BTW, my favorites are the weeping cherries.

Beautiful photos but then you're on that other coast. We have two big Kwanzans here and I love them. We need a rep in DC to show the cherry trees.

Below is a link to the National Park Servic cherry blossom page. Lots and lots of good info for those who appreciate these spectacular trees. Another good site is the National Cherry Blossom Festival (http://www.nationalcherryblossomfestival.org/cms/index.php?id=390)

Thank you guys! I'm glad you enjoyed the photos.

Harry, hang in there, it won't be long--and don't be upset (I know you really aren't.)

I have no idea of what these trees are. I can tell you that the fragrance was overwhelming--like someone had put on too much perfume inside a closed space.

Once you leave the city limits here the countryside is largely orchards of all types as you head east and north.

California Produce

Perhaps flowering Olive? California is also a major producer of almonds. Heck they are a major producer of apples, oranges, pears, peaches...

Land of Fruits and Nuts. LOL!

How about a Kwanzan with azaleas below? A little pink snow seems better than the gray stuff I see out my window today.
