Cherry Blossoms of Washington DC

You know it’s spring in DC when the cherry blossoms bloom. I was becoming impatient to see them because they bloomed late this year and it’s been a long winter for me. Since they only last about two weeks at peak bloom, I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss it at its best. With over 3,500 cherry blossoms lined up along the Tidal Basin they make for beautiful pictures with the national monuments in the background.

It’s my first spring in DC and it’s beautiful here.
