Cherry, Cherry Blossoms...


I'm not sure how long these cherry blossoms will last - I've been driving up and down the 14th street bridge just as often as I can since last week.  I just can't get too many glimpses of the blooms that are truly magical and unique to DC.  The Tidal Basin is the place with the view and the quantity and if you haven't seen them yet, go now - it's fleeting by the minute.  If you go, make sure you walk from metro, the driving situation is completely bonkers down there.  However, if you're a bit more local DC you can also see a good selection at the National Arboretum - including a couple of varietals that bloom just a bit later.  I took these shots there for those that can't catch them in person!

Here's to spring!

  2. I've always wanted to see DC while during cherry blossom season. Anyway, just wanted to stop by and say that I'm loving your blog after finding you through that Alt Summit class and I nominated you for the Versitile Blogger Award here; http://glutenfreetravelette.blogspot.com/. Just a fun award to shine some light on some great high-quality new-to-me blogs!
