I love that I see this at the beginning of the weather report part of the news in Northern Virginia.
One of my favorite things abut this area. Obviously, this photo is not from this year, but shows the tidal basin area and what to expect.
It is a big deal in this area. And should be. So fun to watch the predictions based on the “indicator tree” and where to park during the peak days of the blossoms. There are paddle boat rentals to view the blossoms along the tidal basin, festivals, tours, observations on where to stay for maximum view, the symbolism of the trees and so much more.
Brings to mind all things nice. Family. Friendship. Nature. History. Peacefulness.
