Spring of Washington DC- Japanese Magnolia

The weather in Washington DC/ Maryland finally become warmer and we are all so excited for the cherry blossom season. This would be my first time to visit the National Cherry Blossom Festival in DC. However, due to the cold weather earlier this year, the peak bloom date seems to be pushed back for a week or two. When we visited DC yesterday, there are no cherry blossoms around the Tidal Basin area yet.

Hold on, Cherry Blossoms!!! We will check on you in about 10 days~

While we walked around National Mall area, we found out these little surprises: the fully bloomed Japanese magnolia trees in either pink or white. So pretty and we are just so grateful for the sunny weather and the spring colors.

There are a couple white magnolia trees right in front of the Washington Monument.

There are also some white and pink in the garden right across the National Archives Center where you can sit at Pavilion Cafe or at the fountain enjoy a cup of coffee with the sunshine and breeze.

The prettiest place for the blooming magnolia trees is the Enid A. Haupt Garden right in front of the Smithsonian Castle. It grows two aisles of magnolia trees and more multi-color flowers. We just sit on the bench to watch these beautiful blossoms and people for a while. It’s very relaxing.

  1. 好美,如果在台灣這粉紅和白色美麗的花叫做辛夷或木蓮花,非要到特別地點才看得到,而現在已經都凋謝得差不多了,在華盛頓可以看見那麼美的景色,真的好棒哦!
