In 1912, the people of Japan sent 3,020 cherry trees to the United States as a gift of friendship. First Lady Taft and the Viscountess Chinda, wife of the Japanese Ambassador, planted the first two trees on the northern bank of the Tidal Basin. Each Spring, cherry blossoms frame the views of the Washington Monument and the Thomas Jefferson Memorial. Those two original trees still stand several hundred yards west of the John Paul Jones memorial.
This 500-piece puzzle is double-sided. It features the Washington Monument on one side and the Thomas Jefferson Memorial on the other. The finished size is 15 by 22 inches. It's made with recycled materials. This puzzle is not for children under 3 years of age.

It's been a fun distraction during the Covid-19 quarantine. My family and I enjoyed putting it together, though we've only completed the Washington Monument side so far. It's challenging-many times a piece seems to fit in one place and it turns out after much searching, that it actually goes someplace else. But the picture it creates is gorgeous, and if we couldn't go visit the cherryblossoms in person this year, this puzzle will have to do in its place.
