What's The Big Deal?

You may be wondering what the big deal about the cherry blossoms in DC is. Well, it's mostly a tourist thing, trying to get people to come visit, spend some money, enrich the local economy. But beyond that, they really are quite attractive. We have plenty of beautiful flowering trees here in Florida, but not in the profusion that these things blanket DC. Seemingly every yard has at least one in it, many have several, often of different species so that they bloom in different colors and at different times. This one is just to the south of the Supreme Court, and I thought it made for a great picture with the little girl all dressed in pink below it.
