Ornamental fruit trees are so pretty in the spring! The cherry trees should be at their peak when I am in DC at the end of the month. I hope to get a good tripod before then and am hoping for no wind! It was very windy on this particular day and that is one of the worst enemies for taking good closeups.
Above is a closeup of the purple ground cover. I am sure it is a weed, as if I have some in my yard, it is definitely a weed! When there is a lot of it, it makes for a beautiful sight. Anyone know what it is called?
The magnolias were definitely the star at the gardens on this visit!
I enjoy papercrafting, scrapbooking, photography, travel and sewing. My latest hobby is knitting. I have been married for 37 years to my college sweetheart and we have two grown children, two more children (added through marriage...our children's spouses) a granddaughter and two grandsons. I love to create artwork and share with my friends.
