Every spring, the Yoshino cherry trees bloom in pink and white clouds around the county administration building. The trees planted here about 25 years ago are the same variety of trees that bloom in Washington, D.C., each spring and attract thousands of tourists. The blossoms last about a week unless high winds tear them down, as they did last spring. (Photos by Nancy Lindsey) 11/27/13)
