Texan haven't seen this one...
We just got back from visiting our nation's capitol and saw some trees that we haven't seen before back here in Texas.
The first one is like the wisteria, very fragrant, but with white blooms. Is this a type of wisteria? We saw this one as we walked from the Metro to our hotel in Largo, MD.
The second on is a tree with fringe-like blooms; kind of feathery; white in color. This was in DC.
We enjoyed the gardens in Monticello, Mt. Vernon, and James Monroe's place, even though many had already bloomed.
We were at the White House on Tues. and the gardeners were pulling up the tulips and grape hyacinths and they were kind enough to allow us to take a few. What do they do with all those tulips, etc. Are they thrown away or reused next year?
