The cherry blossoms were late this year, at least, later than the poor organizers of the DC festival predicted. Here at home, you just walk around and eventually the blossoms pop. Here’s the Fredericksburg festival, which lasted from April 8 through the 12th. It wasn’t helped by the typical April week in the 80s, followed by a strong morning rain.The cherry trees lining Lewis Street, looking back towards Caroline Street.
Next come cherries and weeping cherries in the neighborhood, snapped during an early morning walk.
Finally, the blossoms on Lewis Street plastered on the windshield during the rain, and the last blossoms stuck to my car that afternoon.
