I love your photos. They inspire me. Where were these pictures taken? I know I used to live near DC and the cherry blossoms there were like nothing i'd ever seen... These photos make me miss them. Thank you for bringing back those wonderful memories. If I close my eyes I can almost smell them.
We used to have two Montmorency "pie cherry" trees in our garden. They were incredibly sour and, as the name would suggest, we only used them in pies. There's a Belgian lambic beer called Cantillon Kriek that tastes exactly like the pie cherries and transports me back to my childhood whenever I drink it.
