First time I've seen one of these in person while walking around. I was right in front of the Whitman Walker Clinic. So keep an eye out for me.

walkin man envies sitting man until sitting man becomes running into burning building man, eh?

It's cherry blossom time in our nation's capital. And I hadn't been down to see the blossoms in a year or two. So I walked over there on my lunch hour. A four mile walk, just for you.

I'm lucky to live in a city with such serene nature's bounty within walking distance on my lunch hour.

The scaffolding is off the Washington Monument, and they promise to open it back up to the public one day soon.

And the Jefferson Monument on the Tidal Basin is surround by cherry trees. A gift from Japan some decades ago.

Beautiful to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. If you are a tourist, this is the time to come to DC. Avoid those winter crowds. Join a couple people on the basin by renting a nice paddle boat.

Of course, camera angles have nothing at all to do with how the pictures come out.

Wow, gorgeous.
I immediately thought of Japan before scrolling up and seeing you'd referenced it too.

Sundae! As I was typing the post up, I kept thinking of you for some reason.

Glad you get to enjoy and appreciate it, 'cause it costs us a fortune.

Because I'm such a fragile little flower, must be.

In response, Penny in the Garden.
An RFN portrait of Dwarf Cherry in Blossom with Singapura.

My bro has agreed to foster her (the tree) in case I get a place with any kind of outside space.
Otherwise she'll have to go my one of Mum's gardening friends for her forever family. Sigh.

Good Grief, Walking Man! how fast can you walk? Four miles there and four back and time to take pictures in your lunch hour! I knew you had long legs but... wow

(Nice pics, thanks )

Two out and two back make a four mile walk, returning to the office at the end of the lunch break.

I later measured it in Google Earth and it was only about 3.5 round trip. But I do walk pretty fast.
