Cherry Blossoms

This week, the cherry blossoms have reached their peak. Maymont has three types of flowering cherries – weeping Higan, Yoshino and Okame. Yoshino cherry trees are intermingled with Kwanzan cherries along the Tidal Basin in Washington DC. White fountain cherry trees, seen around Richmond, VA, are also blooming now.
