The city is in bloom March 20 to April 14 annually to commemorate an event in 1912 where Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo gifted 3,000 cherry trees to the city of Washington, D.C.
Simon Bull is the official artist for the National Cherry Blossom Festival this year. “Trees have always fascinated me, so have flowers,” Bull says. “Working with the cherry blossoms has given me the perfect excuse to combine the two themes in my work.”
