Thanks to a reader for sending the photo above that was taken this morning:

“Trashy Blossoms on the Mall”

The Washington Post reported on Sunday:

“Officials, he said, “weren’t adequately” prepared for what he described as record crowds for the National Cherry Blossom Festival, though he didn’t have a precise number of visitors. Thousands arrived early, which caused a quick pileup of trash, and trucks had a difficult time getting through the crowds and to the packed sidewalks to pick up waste.”
