Cherry blossom peak times

I try not to miss them, as "now of my three score years and ten
twenty will not come again--" AE Houseman

but some years I am traveling and see them fr the taxi to the airport.

In past they bloomed as late as Easter.

One woman asked me "What kind of flowers are these?"

I answered politely, as not everyone would know their flowers.

One woman aging, overdressed and made up, Asian, kept posing continuously.

I can't walk that far now, so arrive in a taxi, walk 1/2 way around the Tidal Basin, and come back walking and on the Subway.  Don't know if I can do it this year, but will try.

I also have to go to Philly for flower show.
