Every day, as part of the federal fitness program, I walk around the Mall for about 40 minutes during lunch hour. Yesterday's walk was a feast to my eyes. I hope everyone can see what I saw yesterday afternoon.

Finding a quiet spot to see cherry trees in full bloom outside of the Tidal Basin is just a short drive away. Thought you'd enjoy these photos taken Friday at the Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, Va.
