Cherry Blossom in Washington DC peony

I have been to the cherry blossom festival in Brooklyn Botanic Garden for two years. This year it turned me over. Going through the overloaded branches of trees, I could hardly breathe, and the only word coming into my mind is “overwhelming”.

I still remembered the disappointment I had when I had expected such kind of overwhelming cherry blossoms in Washington, D. C. but failed to see it (too late there, April 13). Brooklyn Cherry Blossom Festival (May 3) didn’t disappoint me, thank God. Another excitement it gave me was the next weekend I was there again and saw the Japanese peonies, overwhelming again.
