[April, 2010. For SIL]

Washington, D.C.’s Massachusetts Avenue is one of the most attractive streets in urban America. From DuPont Circle to American University, “Mass” Avenue is lined with stately homes, embassies, and churches, including the National Cathedral.

I was in Washington in early April and, as usual, I took a Sunday drive up and down Mass Avenue. I couldn’t help but notice the ocean of azaleas along the way. Here’s a sample.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Amazing colors in the flowers and I also like the blossoming tree ..I think of the work involved with the upkeep of the flowers and it takes special people to put such tender care into it.

    The photo is very beautiful and amazing color and composition, to keep the flower beds so it takes a lot of care and continuous work. A great sigh of relaxation!
