Cherry Blossoms

This is the first time that I’ve gone to the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C. and it was beautiful!  The cherry blossoms were simply spectacular, and walking around the Tidal Basin was quite an adventure.  There were enchanting views of tree after tree in full bloom.  Lots of other people were walking on the paths but there were plenty of opportunities to see the blossoms and take as many pictures as you wanted.  It was a cloudy day and chilly as well, but since snow had been predicted it was a relief to just have cloudy skies with no precipitation.  I bought a wool hat at Union Station to wear for the day and it helped me stay warm.  Too bad I didn’t buy some gloves as well!  I couldn’t help but take hundreds of pictures and my hands were cold, but it was worth it.

I’m not sure how far I walked but this was one of the views from the path:

Some of the trees were quite old and had interesting trunks.

It was a day I’ll always remember.  I’d like to go back next year, preferably on a warm, sunny day!

  1. That looks so beautiful to eyes that are craving signs of spring. Winter is trying hard to hang on here even though a few blossoms are trying to come out, but this display of yours is just overwhelmingly gorgeous!
