The lovely and loving wife and I made a quick visit to one of my most favorite spots on this ol’ very pretty but very petulant planet of ours to capture a few images of the Cherry Blossoms pre-peak. Peak blossom will be next week so you can be assured we will make a much less quicker visit then to capture the full bloom.
If you, too, would love to see Washington DC’s fabulous Cherry Blossoms, gifts of friendship to the people of the United States from the people of Japan many years ago, but are unable to make the trip, you can see them live via the awesome site earthcam.com. There you can point the lens to different areas, zoom in and out, and even capture a few photos of the beauty and wonderment for yourself.
Can’t wait until next week to see the trees in their peak, and to enjoy the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival in their honor.
The lovely and loving Megi at HappyNest In America has a posted a brief recap of her night with George Winston. However, at the travel website she writes for, she has just published the first part of a much more in-depth series of articles on the musician. While her articles are written in Japanese, all her lovely photographs can be understood in any language one may speak.
You can visit her travel website here.

The lovely and loving Megi at Happynest In America always has the most lovely and loving photography and inspirational words for us. I wish this were a better translation, but it even sounds beautiful when google says it:
Green foxtail’s the pampas grass
but the oak twig bird’s the hill beyond the sunset’s
the madder, field that is dyed in sepia also a good
