Spring arrives in Metro DC
















It showed up a couple weeks earlier in the heat island of the city proper.
The cherries bloomed first in DC, than along the highways and now in my apartment complex. I imagine my neighbors around the courtyard wished these Bradford pears smelled like cherry trees. I don't mind. The scent reminds me of my suburban street hockey days.

"car! ...         game on!"

  1. I really dislike the smell of Bradford Pears. Yucky, wet, smelly socks smell just when the weather's nice enough to open the windows. I even notice them when driving along a street lined with them.
    My daughter and I call them "stinky trees".
    Now, Yoshino cherries are "cloud trees" and are gorgeous.
    By the way, Yokohamamama, http://yokohamayomama.blogspot.com/, has some great pics of cherries in Japan.
