Wash DC: The Cherry Trees

110 years ago on March 27, 1912, the first two Cherry Trees were planted on the Potomac river near the Jefferson memorial as a gift from Japan.

As I had never seen them but heard they were at peak, it was so much fun to wake one of my oldest friends and ask if she’d meet me there. Me coming from the North and she from the South.

We walked a while as we navigated our way through and around the National Mall and the Smithsonian finally to arrived at the Jefferson Memorial for our photo ops.

Friends for 45 years!

At friends for over 45 years, I think it’s about time we planted a tree to commemorate.

TIP: We tried the wharf for dinner but even on this early spring Thursday night reservations were needed everywhere.
