Notes: The first two words of the caption on the back of this card are "cherry blossoms".  I realize that Washington, D.C. is famous for its cherry blossoms every spring; however, there are no cherry blossoms in this photo.  Cherries grow on trees, and therefore, the blossoms would be on trees.  The lovely pink flowers shown here are clearly growing on a bush, not a tree.  That would mean that they are NOT cherry blossoms.  The person responsible for writing the caption obviously needs to take a botany class.  

FYI, the building in the photo is the U.S. Capitol Building, where the Senate and the House of Representatives meet.
