Cherry Tree at the Japanese Garden, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.
This weekend, the National Cherry Blossom Festival is taking place in Washington DC. IT has been a mixed feeling, viewing the cherry blossoms season here. In between the historic events worldwide and the tragedy in Japan, the delicate pink blossoms came and gave way to leaves of different hues! The Kwanzan Cherry blossoms will come later but the other blossoms came beautifully and left a bitter-sweet feeling.

Work commitments and our youngester's acitvities this weekend,  has kept us home, unlike last year. In between the turned-up pace at school, work, we did find time to wander around the conservatory in Lewis Ginter, earlier this month.  Things were not in place yet but we did catch a glimpse of what was to come for the season.
