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.
