Is that from Gettysburg? That statute looks very familiar for some reason!

Sherpa said...

this is a statue of a Civil War general (not one of the major ones) that the park across from where I work is named for.

The branches? As you can see, the tulip trees are budding, and are preparing to bloom. They bloom a few weeks before the cherry blossoms. Personally, the cherry blossoms are gorgeous and have the better location, but the tulip trees are my favorite.

Sherpa said...

Oh, I work in DC, about two blocks from the White House.

Donna said...

yay for the budding, come on spring! Happy WW.

I have some civil war related photos today myself. Is the statue in DC of George Meade? (just considering since he lead the Army of the Potomac and Fort MEade (where I was born) is just outsie of DC

That man was not wordless in life:)
And the branch speaks for it self: Spring is coming.

Pretty...I bet I'd be eating my lunch at the park on my lunch break, every day!!!

Today my W W blog is celebrating our kitty's 5th Gotcha Day (adoption) I explain the photos in the 1st comment entry

They are tulip trees. Tulips bloom 2 weeks or so before the japanese cherry trees.

The General? Not Meade. Meade is a "major" Civil War general. I always forget this guy's name, but its on his statue which I walk by at least twice a day

Nice looking statue. If you catch the name send it to me. The jonquils are already blooming here in Georgia. I'm afraid though we have another cold snap in March. We always do.

Thanks for visiting my WW. My painting has a connection to your town....

Lisa said...

I have some tulip trees in my yard. They are little ones right now though, but they grow pretty quickly. We'll expect you to report back tomorrow on the name of this minor General! LOL

Holly said...

Awwww I love civil war and spring blossoms! Excellent WW. ;o)

Hugs,

So that's how a tulip tree looks like. Are these where tulip flowers grow or is it different.
Thanks for the visit.
