A Single Bloom

Although the National Mall region is known for its Cherry Blossoms, there are other types of blooming trees in the area as well. I'm not sure what this blooming tree is called, but during my spring visits, I take many photographs of these dark pink and purple blossoms. This tree is located in the beautiful James Mason Memorial on the south side of the Tidal Basin. The garden is a tribute to Mason, a founding father who attended the Constitutional Convention in 1787 and authored the Virginia Declaration of Rights.
