Lafayette Square Beauty

Just look at the beautiful yellow blooms – don’t you feel more at peace? The ever-present Bomb Lady hopes so. How about the knowledge that looking at these flowers you are in the shade of one of the ten largest trees in D.C.?

Casey Trees says that the biggest tree identified in DC to date is an 80-foot American elm in Lafayette Square. Nice to know that the fattest squirrels in DC have the largest tree to chatter in.

Now check your hood – might you be sheltering a larger tree? What about more picturesque blooms? Shout out if you can compete.

    That’s always nice to see actual pictures of places you have seen in holidays.

    In April 2005 it didn’t look like that – was a bit cold when I remember right.

    Man one year has past since I was there and now I’m sitting in Germany and remember the good week we had at the east coast.

    Good to read these blogs here :)
