Cherry Trees On The Golf Course

 The most famous cherry trees in the Washington DC area are undoubtedly the ones that circle the Tidal Basin. But cherry trees are in bloom right now all over the entire region. Even the golf courses are decorated with clusters of pale, fluffy blooms, their loose petals scattered over the less-than-pristine greens. This early in the year, the bermuda grass makes this scene look more like a farmer's field than a manicured course.  Soon enough, leaves replace petals and the trees must stand stoically, right in the line of badly hit golf balls.
