Cherry Blossom Time

It’s Cherry Blossom time in Washington D.C. Thousands of visitors from around the world come to witness this in spring each year. The famous trees, a gift from Japan in 1912, signal Washington’s rite of spring with an explosion of life and color. Try the new book by Ann McClellan “The Cherry Blossom Festival”. This excellent book tells of the development, meaning and symbolism of The Cherry Blossom Festival. Visit the web site for a web cam of the blossoms and complete festival activities.
