The is the National Cherry Blossom float
a closer look
It's ironic that the beaver is telling us to leave the blossoms alone, The beavers were the critters that were gnawing down the cherry trees along the Potomac. Using the Cherry tree wood for their dams. You can enlarge the photo to read the sign. I guess they learn their lesson.....We trapped them and relocated the beavers to the National Zoo.
And finally the dancers in the National Museum. Oh I can't wait for this years National Cherry Blossom Festival.
