cherry blossom festival

Every year, more that a million persons from around the world travel to Washington, D.C.,  for views of Rosslyn decorated with cherry blossoms. This year, the National Cherry Blossom Festival started today and runs through Apr. 10.  Those of us who live in Rosslyn might not appreciate how beautiful Rosslyn is.  Sometimes, a little distance fosters greater appreciation.

Unfortunately, as Rosslyn soars skyward, a magnificent tree has been cut to the ground.

To sacrifice a tree so that population density can be increased - SAD SAD SAD -
Doesn't the city have any laws to prevent this. We need have more of nature and less concrete!!!
