The Cherry Blossoms

D.C. may be famous for its Cherry Blossom Festival, but why travel and battle the crowds when we have some beautiful trees right here in the village?

The tree from which this particular blossom was photographed can be found on the corner of Mill Road and Main Street, near the gazebo. There are several trees next to a gorgeous garden, which bears a sign stating that it (the garden) was planted and maintained by the Westhampton Garden Club.

Vacations Past: The Tulips in the Field

with one comment

Walking around Descanso Gardens is a wonderful way to spend a day of your vacation. Every month of the year, there is something new blooming — cherry trees, camellias, roses… there’s even often wildlife making their homes in or around the ponds in the garden.

On this last visit, D and I happened to go when they were having their Tulip Festival. For as far as the eye could see, there were tulips stretching their flowery faces to the sky. Red ones, pink ones, purple ones… all in lovely, vibrant shades, all perfectly poised for a wonderful photo opportunity. I’m very lucky D is a very patient guy, as he stood around uncomplaining for probably half an hour while I got down in the grass composing pictures.
