We visited Washington today and headed for the Enid Haupt garden by Smithsonian Castle to see the magnolia trees in bloom. On the way there were some quite colourful flowerbeds.
The magnolia trees are usually beautiful but this year, although they have only just come into flower, they have been caught by the frost (last night the temperature dropped to -8)....
We walked on to the National Mall where some early cherry trees are in bloom..
As well as a beautiful witch hazel..
