Dear Ebi

Will you be creating a slide show of it with a great selection of music?

It is so relaxing to look at the pictures again and again. :o)

As I grew up in that area, your photos brought back a lot of memories. This time of year as well as the early part of autumn are truly the best times of year in the DC area.

Azarin, there's one other thing that you have to do as well with if you have allergies and live in the DC area: You have to wash your car almost daily because of pollen accumulating so fast. If you were to open your car window while driving it will blow in your face, and if you turned on the fan or a/c in your car, a lime-green colored dust cloud will consume you. It seemed to get worse with each passing year!

ebi jaan,




ابی جان




دستت درد نکنه با این عکسای قشنگ، برای اون دسته از دوستان که از نزدیک ندیدن غنیمته .

خانوم یا آقای سرشار:

من هم اون ور زندگی‌ کردم هم اینور...ساحل شرقی‌ و ساحل غربی، تو اون سرمای کچل کش مریلند که آدم نمیدونه شال گردن رو دور لوزتین ش ببنده یا دور بیضتین ش......فکر می‌کردم که........... هیچ جا کالیفرنیا نمیشه   



beautiful trees!

seeing these beautiful trees makes you realize how wonderful it is to have four distinct seasons to enjoy.... you can find beauty in all of them.... maryland is a wonderful state to live in.

I will always miss it

by alborzi (not verified) on

I lived and worked in Washington DC for 5 years, the thing about Cherry blossoms, was not just their beauty
it was also just after Norooz. It always made me home sick. I never found the same feeling, no place else. I always miss them.

Ebi, do this, please. You can.

بهار امد و ان بچه کرمان
برفتش بر بره باغ و گلستان
که دوربينش برد بر دشت وکوهی
بگيرد اوی فيلمهايه با شکوهی

So Lovely...but not for me!

Thank you Ebi jan for these great pictures!

Because of my severe allergy, I have to avoid nature in going through these pictures was a real pleasure; catching the beauty of blooming trees, minus the itchy eyes and choking sensation! Priceless!

Thank you! Azarin

These did not even need captions, for cherry blossoms are cherry blossoms anywhere and by any name!

I could smell the sweet blossoms, the hyacinths and the daffodils...

Thanks for sharing the pictures. Maybe next year I'd make serious plans to be there for the season.
