One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

The Cherrys and the Magnolias were in good form today
I drove around after working an extra hour on the second day of daylight savings time. I think I'm still confused. There's lots of color, mostly shades of pink. All exaggeration aside, I think these flowers are about a week ahead of their usual time, maybe ten days. We hit 70F today and it was pleasant. The ASRT Monday Project was in the Asian Collections and we, mostly they, rolled through my projects, then put down 12 tons of CR-6, dug an old stump out with the backhoe, and tidied the Japanese Woodland with a backpack blower. Wow.
