Having lived in Washington, DC it’s easy to forget that other places have cherry blossom trees. In DC the trees are ubiquitous. We have a two week festival people from across the world flock to just in order to see our trees. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I was shocked to see several varieties of cherry blossom trees when Spring started in Chicago. I guess it doesn’t matter where they’re located, cherry trees are stunning in full bloom.
