Springtime in DC is all about the cherry blossom—especially this year, as we get ready to celebrate the one-hundredth anniversary of the gift of cherry trees to Washington from the city of Tokyo, Japan. But today, we’ll let the magnolia take center stage. This is pretty much the view outside the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery this week: bright sunshine and an explosion of magnolia blossoms. The only thing we can’t share with you is the intoxicating fragrance—it’s out of this world.
