In the spring of 2004, I spent the semester in D.C., interning at the Sackler Gallery. When it wasn’t raining, I would walk to work at the National Mall from my dorm in Dupont Circle, taking pictures of the flowerbeds surrounding the embassies along the way.
In my last post, I mentioned the cherry blossoms and my urge to see them after staring at the label of the Hanami Ale.
It’s been fairly warm for three days now and I think I’m starting- maybe prematurely- to emerge from my winter hibernation and get really excited about spring! In celebration of a season that might just be around the corner, here are some photos I took of magnolia trees that semester in D.C.- also pink, like cherry blossoms. These trees were located in the courtyard between the Sackler and the Castle, the lawn in front of the Freer, and the garden between the two museums.
