Graphic Cherry Blossoms

I'm using the "graphic" approach to my blossom picture again this year. "Graphic" means building the image with simple forms and restricted colors rather than making it "realistic." Flowers, fireworks, and the Washington Monument can be depicted with repetitive elements without using artistic illusion to make it look real. I heard fireworks but didn't see them. The famous Cherry Blossom Festival closes this weekend. My neighborhood has blooming cherry, crabapple, and redbud trees so I can enjoy the color right here without going downtown and enduring "cherry blossom congestion."
