Just look at the beautiful yellow blooms – don’t you feel more at peace? The ever-present Bomb Lady hopes so. How about the knowledge that looking at these flowers you are in the shade of one of the ten largest trees in D.C.?
Casey Trees says that the biggest tree identified in DC to date is an 80-foot American elm in Lafayette Square. Nice to know that the fattest squirrels in DC have the largest tree to chatter in.
Now check your hood – might you be sheltering a larger tree? What about more picturesque blooms? Shout out if you can compete.
