Spring at National Rhododendron Garden 24.02.2014

We went to the National Rhododendron Gardens to view the beauty of cherry blossom or sakura. Unfortunately, cherry blossom flowers have faded by that time (mid Oct), but we were lucky to view other flowers like rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, daffodils and much more! The garden is not so large, but it is very beautiful, especially in spring and autumn.

Couple of photos from one of our walks near Shrine of Remembrance. I believe that this is the best place to watch NY's fireworks - look at the city's skyline!
