DANCE OF THE CHERRY BLOSSOM

Last year I attended the 100th Anniversary of the Cherry Blossom Festival held in Washington, D.C.  Below are a few of the photos I took of the dancing trees.

Behold, we dance before thee

As we ready our branches

to blossom

in preparation

for the start

of Spring.

  1. Beautiful costumes, and the eye make-up is stunning. The poem..lovely!

  2. Ah yes, the welcoming of Spring’s cherry bossom. Love it! 😀

  3. Wow how interesting. Never seen anything like it

  4. I know of the festival but never stopped to think of activities other than looking at the blossoming trees. Kind of ridiculous on my part. Thanks for sharing, Francine.

  5. If this heralds the start of Spring then the Cherry Blossom is doubly welcome.

  6. I remember this, Francine. Where did that year go?

  7. When I saw the title, I thought it was going to be about the wind blowing the blossom around. Great festival to hold!

  8. A year ago. time flies

  9. Spring is here and we all can’t wait for it’s gifts of blooms and rebirth. This is a fun festival. I wish there’s more of these everywhere. Spring is a fun season to go outdoors and just celebrate life.

  10. How wonderful, wouldn’t you just love to try those costumes? 🙂

  11. I remember you taking this trip last year! My how time flies and how your blog has grown! It’s wonderful, and you work is still beautiful and captivating! Love the photos and the little poem. 🙂 Smiles and Blessings! -Faith
