Cherry Blossoms in Washington DC to Hit 100


Later this month the cherry blossom trees in Washington DC will hit full bloom and these trees aren’t your typical Japanese cherry blossom trees, there are some that are over 100 years old. Normally they get to 50. There are only a few of the original 3000 planted 100 years ago in a cultural exchange. There are many thousands now and they’re scheduled to bloom later this month. It’s a stunning concept when you think about it. The influence of a tree is taking so huge that there’s a national level festival around it. (Seattle Times – Cherry Blossoms)
