Posted on by royvickery |

The London Evening Standard of 6 April 2018 includes a photograph with a brief caption:  ‘The National Cherry Blossom Festival is under way with the blossom [at the Tidal Basin Park, Washington DC] with the blossom reaching peak bloom this week.  The festival commemorates the 1912 gift to the city of 3000 cherry trees from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo.’
